Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
South San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Genentech in February 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was extremely thorough. At orientation it was a big joke to see who had gone through the most interviews to get hired. Lowest was 9 highest was 13. For me multiple phone interviews then 2 full days of on site interviews.

Interview Question – Noting in particular - 11 interviews many had similar questions.   Answer Question

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Genentech.

Interview Details – Hiring process was fairly quick. I went through a recruiter for a contract position. Recruiter flew me into SSF for a half day interview. I interviewed with 3 different people, right after each other. Found out my results the end of the same week.

Interview Question – One of the interviewers showed me a slide deck with a project plan set in place and asked how I would do this better.   Answer Question

Project Manager Interview

Project Manager
South San Francisco, CA

The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Genentech in November 2011.

Interview Details – 2 phone screens (hiring manager + HR), in-person interviews with 8 people and a phone interview with 1 more person. Long day, be mentally prepared and even if you have no more questions, recycle them for person number 9.

They give a lot of complex information on their structure and expect questions about the organization and how you fit in alnd what will be difficult for you in the position.
