OUR INTERVIEW PROCESS
After finding your dream job and submitting your application, here are some of the next steps you can expect during the hiring process at the LSB.
We do our best to keep the interview process as simple as possible.
In most cases, this means:
Hiring manager chat: We'll start with a phone interview, where you can tell us about your relevant experience and skills. This is a chance for you to learn about us, too. Think of it as a first step to calculating our chemistry with one another.
Meet the team: During this stage, we'll open up the conversation to other LSB-ers. You'll meet with a few cross-functional team members and really dive into your relevant experience, shining successes, important career learnings and unique qualities. This is a chance for us to get to know each other better.
During our interviews, we ask candidates to respond to questions using the STAR method. STAR stands for situation, task, action and result of the situation – please be prepared to discuss each when you respond to interview questions.
We'll make sure there’s time for you to ask questions you have about the role, the team, future career opportunities and more. In cases where we have to conduct an interview remotely, we'll be sure to provide an opportunity for you to visit the office location during the process.
We'll provide as much notice and flexibility as possible when scheduling interviews. We like to keep the process moving along at this stage, so we’ll strive to provide a two-day notice for phone and live video interview requests and three- to five-day notice for on-site interviews, depending on the amount of travel necessary.
After your interviews are complete, we will keep in touch with updates as the process moves along. Please look for initial outreach from your recruiter two to three business days after your interview. We will follow up to let the successful candidate know the interview process is complete within seven days.
After the completion of the interview process, LSB teams will work quickly to finalize the details of your offer for employment. In most cases, we're able to provide you with an offer within three days, while some complex roles may require additional time.
We do our best to communicate offers clearly and provide transparent information on any questions you may have.
