    Contract Proofreader Position Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Gilead Sciences (Foster City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Had a very positive discussion with recruiter concerning the position I was contacted about. He arranged a phone interview within a day. He was most helpful in getting me prepared for the interview, including a list of questions that might be asked of me by the hiring manager. The interview on the phone was a lot more formal than I was prepared for. I was asked a few typical interview questions and then I had a chance to ask some of my own. Towards the end, we started feeling a little more relaxed in our conversation. I soon learned that I would not make it to the next round of interviews.

    Director In Pharm Dev & Mfg Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Gilead Sciences (Foster City, CA).

    Interview

    Several interviewers used the entire time to complain about the work and/or the management. I liked their honesty, but to have more than 1 person do that was a bad sign. Quite a few of the interviewers had no description of the role and many clearly hadn't looked at my CV before they came in the room. I can't imagine what it must be like when they aren't putting their best image forward.

    Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Gilead Sciences.

    Interview

    Applied to job in December -- took them 3 weeks to even reach out to me. I was interviewed via phone and then brought in for interviews. The interviews were approximately 45 minutes -- somewhat rushed in my opinion. I found some of the people I interviewed with to be very nice and others to be rather stuffy and full of themselves. The one thing I would point out is the reimbursement process is horrific! Too many cooks in the kitchen and not a very solid process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gilead Sciences in January 2015.

    Interview

    Got scheduled a phone interview with the Director of Talent Acquisition.

    He called in time

    Spoke about my experience and what they are looking for

    He said he was going on vacation for a week but would get back to me in bringing me in to meet the team face to face

    2 weeks has gone by and I email him about following up on the job.

    Never got a response to close the loop.

    As a recruiter, I am particular in giving feedback so that you don't string along and waste people's time waiting for something that is already gone.
