    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Scientific Research.

    Interview

    Working with the HR department was very easy and hands off for me. The interview process was with 7 different people; most of which were just casual discussion and not Q/A.

    Interview Questions

    • More of a personality test, just general discussion on a wide array of topics from hobbies, to describing my entire career background, and family. It was not a typical interview by any stretch of the imagination, as stated above-more of a personality test.   Answer Question
