I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Illumina in August 2010.

Interview Details – Called by HR recruiter about two weeks after applying through their career site for the position. No behavioral interview with HR, straight away to scheduling a technical 30 minute phone interview the following week with the engineering manager. Interview consisted of technical questions and a few behavioral questions from the get go, however technical questions were unrelated to job description.

I applied online and interviewed at Illumina.

Interview Details – HR rep called shortly after submission of online application to schedule interview with hiring manager. Phone interview lasted about 60min. Started with general CV questions, then he asked a series of technical questions: define statistics terms, describe the structure of DNA, discuss ANOVA, describe how to alter computer code to improve efficiency.

Interview Question – Hypothesize what might be causing an image to appear unfocused and propose methods to correct the problem. It was unexpected because the content did not seem to relate to the job function.   Answer Question
