Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Illumina in January 2013.
Interview Details – Single phone interview only. I was not local during the interview process, or I likely would have had a face-to-face as well. Manager on the phone was very friendly and seemed more curious about my personal background rather than technical expertise. Probably not how interviews usually go. Position was entry level, and manager didn't' seem overly concerned about technical ability and more about how 'trainable' I was.
Interview Question – No unexpected or difficult questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Offered a miserably low amount. Asked for more. was offered slightly more than original offer and was told 'take it or leave it'
