Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Genentech.

Interview Details

Each individual interview was 30 minutes with each member of the department - 9 people including director. This was a two day process. Each person was able to have a copy of my resume available and ask about my current position and why I wanted to work at Genentech. They also wanted to make sure I would fit with the team as it was a "tight nit-quirky group".

    Project Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in South San Francisco, CA

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Genentech in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got my interview with Genentech through a recruiter. Organization of the interview was handled by my recruiter. The interview was on the Genentech campus, and took about two hours. The first hour was an interview with my would-be supervisor and his colleague. They asked me questions from what seemed to be a list of predetermined interview questions. I was asked to describe situations from my previous experience that would fit into different job situations. I was asked some open-ended questions about jobs I had held in the past as well. In the second hour, I was interviewed by two others from the department. Their questions were similar to those I had been asked in the first hour. My feeling on the situation was that the two sets of two interviewers was a way to get different perspectives on my personality and experience related to the job. I didn't feel like I was being grilled at any time. It was a fairly comfortable experience. I think I received an offer for the job about a week after the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • Describe a time when it would have been easier to turn a blind eye to a bad situation, but instead chose to take action.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I did not try to negotiate the salary because the offer ended up being higher than the expected range my recruiter had provided me. As a contractor, benefits were not available through Genentech, so there was no negotiation there either.
