    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Exelixis.

    Interview Details

    Very pleasant people, questions relevant for the job description. However, it took a long time until I did not hear that they will move forward to hire me. All in all, the whole interviewing process was pleasant, just a lot of uncertainty.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Exelixis in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Their hiring process is fine, although you have to interview with many people and the entire process can take months before you receive a job offer. First you have a couple of telephone screens, then you have a face to face interview with several employees then there may be a follow up telephone interview.
