    Research Technician Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Interveiw was scheduled after the PI was reffered to me. Spoke to the PI for about three minutes before being awkwardly left with one of her post docs (who happened to be the only other african american person in the room). A standerd interveiw followed with minimal contact with the PI. She later posted the job on the hr website and essentially reacted as if we had never met when I emailed her directly. In resproscept, a pretty negative experience.
