    Application Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. 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.
