    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at US Forest Service (Riverside, CA).

    Interview

    Applied on my university career website, had to go through usajobs.gov, took a couple of weeks to get a phone call for an interview. Interviewed at the research lab, informal interview, more of a personality interview. Interviewer was a current researcher, was basically explaining what they did at that laboratory.
