- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at BioMarin Pharmaceutical.Interview Details
One of the most professional interviews/company ever. Applied months prior to being called saying that they were interested in setting up a phone interview, they covered the position/company then sent me an reminder email for the determined time and day. The 2nd call came in a few hours before the actually phone interview as a reminder call to check if I was still OK or wanted to reschedule. The 3rd call (Actually phone interview) came in which lasted about 20 minutes which we talked about resume, school, resume stuff and more about the position/company. The 4th call came a few days later which they said they were interested in meeting me, asked if i had any additional question(pay $21-25 hr based on experience+slight OT pay) and scheduled the day. Got a email a week later at 12 am with the final schedule- 5 groups of 2- 2.5 hr.
I drove up to the bay area, at the site two other people were there for the same position they broke us up into different rooms. I ended up meeting with 6 of 10 supervisors( it was around holiday time) who were very nice, professional, friendly, and considerate people, They asked pre-written questions and wrote stuff. They rotated every 30 mint between me and each asked if I wanted water or a small brake.I felt good after, but Its been 3+ weeks and no phone call or email but overall a great company with a very dedicated and respectful workforce.Interview Questions
