    MBA Summer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  South San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Genentech in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Started with a 1st round interview on campus - standard behavioral questions. Then 2nd rounds were at Genentech -- people have 3-6 interviews, each with a specific project manager, so that you're interviewing for a specific summer project. Mostly behavioral questions, but some can be "how would you approach this type of project" so that they can get a sense of your experience working in the area for the summer project. Then they'll let you know about whether you're getting an offer, on the waitlist, or not getting an offer within a few days.

    Negotiation Details
    They do not negotiate, at all, on salary. I also found that they didn't really negotiate on relocation either. that said, they are pretty generous and more than competitive.
