I have been working at Equilar full-time (more than 8 years)Pros
I worked for Equilar longer (8 years) than anywhere I've been around a long time. I've seen it grow from tiny to huge. There are some great and very smart people here. Small company so got to work on multiple projects which helped me to learn a lot.
Exiting work and always learned something new in terms of technology or process. Management has their ears open, huge opportunities for people with skills, time when major changes are happening.
Not only is the health insurance is good but there are lots of other benefits like tuition reimbursement, 401-k match, profit distribution, incentive bonus and perks like team events, company picnic, Free Cal-train yearly pass, onsite-gym and many more.Cons
I live in South bay so commute is killing. I wish I get a chance to work from home once a week and save my commute time.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied through college or university – interviewed at Equilar.Interview Details
Had four parts to my interview, each longer and more tedious than the first. Had to submit a resume and cover letter online through a portal. Had to do a phone interview and online personality test. The personality test basically came down to chose words to describe yourself and words others would use to describe you.Interview Questions
Reasons for Declining
- What do you think about laws regarding capping executive compensation to the median worker? Answer Question
The interviewers seemed eager to explain how the company was not as horrible as explained on glass door. Were honest about the high turnover but could not give a reason for it. Was a huge red flag. Also uncomfortable with the questions asked. Too political in nature. Felt like they were asking who I voted for in the last election.Declined OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
