I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Genentech in November 2012.

Interview Details – I had an in-person interview set up through a third-party recruiter. I only interviewed with one person -- the direct supervisor for the position. He had set questions to ask me, which were very straightforward. The interview was mostly behavioral with general questions. It lasted 45 mins,

Interview Question – Can you give me a time where you took action to prevent an issue?   Answer Question

Manufacturing Technician Interview

Manufacturing Technician
South San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Genentech in October 2011.

Interview Details – One of the supervisors called me quite late in the evening to schedule for an interview the following week that had the interview listed as from 1pm to 7pm, but be there by 11:30am. Details of interview were not really given other then when to show up. Showed up on time and found that 4 people were also scheduled the same time as me. We were escorted in to a small hallway to wait to be interviewed. My interview was not to start until 2pm, but I was already waiting at 12 so I just reviewed notes. It was a bit uncomfortable considering workers were walking in and out and the long waiting period was not helping with being nervous.

Got into the interview interviewed by two supervisors. The lady asked a few questions but mainly let the man run the interview. He asked me about why I wanted to work at Genentech and some technical questions about running machines. I only got about 5 basic questions when he said he was tired and wanted to end the interview earlier.

I already felt awkward with the interview style, so I of course did not expect any offer, but it was an experience.

Difficult Interview

Manufacturing Technician Interview

Manufacturing Technician
South San Francisco, CA

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Genentech in October 2011.

Interview Details – The entire interview process was fairly difficult. It consisted of a phone interview which was comprised of basic science questions and an in-person interview which consisted of more basic interview questions. The person that interviewed with me was very friendly and the facility was beautiful.

My only complaint is that I received absolutely no feedback about the interview after I found out that I wasn't offered the position. After having a good interview, it can be a disheartening to hear that they "have no specific reason for the decision." It would be nice if they were a little more helpful in that regard.

Interview Question – What is pH?   Answer Question
