    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at ChemoCentryx (Mountain View, CA).

    Interview

    There was a 5 minute phone conversation followed by an invitation for interview.
    The on-site interview was an informal and easy chat with the hiring manager and 3 other employees.
    They do not have a real hiring process, there is lot of uncertainty and they do not answer questions well about hiring timeline, team members, etc.

    This is a very small company, but not a start-up, has been around for more than a decade and is more like a severe case of "failure-to-thrive".

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at ChemoCentryx.

    Interview

    Phone interview was not too difficult, usual questions regarding education, work experience, goals, knowledge of specific techniques which the position required. Position did not work out as there was no training involved, it was a small group and they wanted someone with exact expertise.

    Interview Questions

    • they asked about exact assays that they wanted, not overall technical skills   Answer Question
