Paso Robles, CA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Santa Cruz Biotechnology in May 2008.

Interview Details – 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 Question – 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 Details – Negotiated with poor pay.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Santa Cruz Biotechnology.

Interview Details – They called me and scheduled an interview right after they got my resume. I was interviewed by 5 different people: 4 department leaders and the general manager.

Interview Question – Nothing too unexpected, they just ask what your interests are, what you've done, and if you're willing to do the same stuff over   Answer Question
