    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Genentech (San Francisco, CA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Was recruited by Genetech Recruiter via LinkedIn. I am located in NJ and position was in Headquarters in CA. Had 45 minute HR Introductory Phone Interview. 3 business days later had 45 minute phone interview with the Hiring Manager. The following week had 5 Skype interviews with various team members for the position. Then waited 5 weeks before I heard back from Hiring Manager's Admin to set up a face to face. Was flown to CA a few days before interview to get acquainted with city, and then had full day of interviews. Met with 12 people in 5 hours. Some of the interviews were 30 minutes, some were 15 minutes with people I had originally Skyped with. Most of the interviews were "get to know you" type of questions. No deep or trick questions. Nothing formal like that - very position-specific questions and diving into my past experience. Went 5 weeks with no communication or update back from Genetech, and then received a personal call from the hiring manager that I did not get the position, and explained why they went with the other candidate over me. Was very professional and I was impressed by the personal touch. Was told i would be kept in mind for future positions.
