    Manager, Senior Manager Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Fluidigm in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I learned of the position via a job alert email, and applied on line. I received an HR phone interview request. She explained the position and the corporate culture in more detail. She definitely sold me on the company, and I was more excited about the prospect after our interview. This interview was to confirm my qualifications and interest. I was invited to an on-site interview with the hiring manager. It was brief, about 30 minutes and I needed more time, just for my own clarity of interest, and we extended it another 15 minutes. This interview also gave me more details about the company and the position. We reviewed my resume, work and systems experience, and went into more detail on my qualifications for this particular position. It was positive, relaxed and there were no off the wall questions. It's important that personalities fit since it's a small team and everyone might need to help out beyond their official role. This was my impression.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Fluidigm in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone screen, phone interview and then was flown in from out of town for a 1/2 day, multiple person interview. Couldn't have been a better experience (save for the fact I, sadly, didn't get the gig. ...Very friendly, genuine people who made me feel comfortable. Offered ample time to take a break/breather between interviews. Very open and honest (no cliches, corporate speak garbage) in answering my questions. Even though I didn't get the job, I got the sense that it's a good company with a great culture.
