I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Amyris Biotechnologies.

Starting with meeting with HR. and then hiring manager and coworkers. Technical questions will be asked, prepare for some questions to ask them to cut down their question time.

Emeryville, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Amyris Biotechnologies in February 2012.

Interview Details – Applied as an employee referral. Spoke with hiring manager right away. Interviewed with 6 people - individually. Took some time to get an offer, but was fair with great benefits. Took some time for background check to clear. First day set up was awkward, but it all worked out.

Interview Question – Was asked to describe a time I had to ask for help on a project.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I accepted the offer.
