    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Accelrys in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, but didn't get any response. So I emailed the HR directly, then I received a response a few days later. They first scheduled an hour phone interview with the hiring manager. After that I had an onsite interview where I had 1:1 interview with about 4 different managers/developers.
    The hiring manager asked a few technical questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Accelrys.

    Interview Details

    1st stage - phone interview by boss-to-be
    2nd stage - 3-4 hour face to face interview by the following:
    HR: welcome and close with box-ticking questions and questionnaire
    Technical team members: longest part of the interview
    Boss-to-be: a mix of technical and general
    Boss of boss-to-be: general

    Most of the development work requires the use of a proprietary software, that's why all the candidates are shown this, which is good as the candidates know what they are getting into.
