Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Genentech in February 2012.
Interview Details – I applied to the job online, and was contacted for a phone interview. The first phone interview was a technical interview with one of the engineers in the department I was applying to work in. He was very nice and asked two or three easy questions in the beginning asking about myself but then went right into the technical questions. He said the process was then a second phone interview with another engineer that I would work closely with and then if I was chosen, an on-site interview in San Francisco.
