    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Santa Cruz Biotechnology (Paso Robles, CA) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Interview was a piece of cake. I was interviewed by 4 different people (2 HR personals and 2 supervisors). All they asked was what was your favorite class, what I did at my past jobs, am I willing to work long hours, what qualities can you bring to the company. No scientific questions. Even they were stumped when you ask them questions about scientific questions. My buddy asked about a mass spectrometer questions on how they can tell if large/small proteins can get separated. They gave him a blank stare and diverted the question saying it wasn't their department, even though the supervisors have master's, they do not have a clue about anything scientific. No tests are given.

    Interview Questions

    • None. They were all easy. Trust me, if your breathing, have working limbs, then your hired. DO NOT TELL THEM THAT YOU ARE GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL OR JUST STAYING FOR A YEAR OR LESS. THEY WILL NOT CONSIDER YOU.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiated with poor pay.
