    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Stoke-on-Trent, England) in September 2020.

    Interview

    Relaxed for the most part. Lengthy, six hours and met with a new person every 1/2 hour. Not the typical interview questions and no trick questions. They went through the topics on the job description. Met with division and associate division leaders. Everyone was very nice.
