I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at BioGenex (Fremont, CA).
I initially had a very rushed and unexpected phone interview from one of the scientists asking me about my background and my knowledge of the company and its products/services. He was kind of brusque on the phone, but he eventually scheduled me for an on site interview later on in the week. I was interviewed by a panel of 3 people (including the person who conducted the phone interview) and they proceeded to ask me about my background and then quizzed me about the steps of certain experiments that I had performed in the past.
They then asked me if I had any experience performing tissue embedding and staining and seemed very shocked and even scoffed at me (and became progressively more rude) when I told them that I did not, even though it is clearly not listed on my resume, and I even stated in my cover letter that I did not have experience with it but was eager to learn. They also asked me if I could work overtime and occasionally on the weekends if I got the position. Honestly, they were all quite rude and just seemed very condescending.
At the end of the interview, they asked if I knew where the exit was and then basically dismissed me while they all stayed behind in the meeting room. I eventually got a call back to come in for a second interview, but I declined because the environment of the office and the attitudes of the interviewers were so terrible. I honestly think that I would have been miserable working there, especially considering that the interviewers did not look very happy themselves.
