    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Charles River Laboratories in February 2013.

    Interview

    After applying online I had a telephone interview before being asked up for a face to face meeting. The telephone interview was pretty basic stuff, mostly about when I would be available. The interview itself was fairly informal, spoke to several senior scientists and met some of the staff on a tour of the site.
