    Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rockville, MD
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Human Genome Sciences (Rockville, MD) in July 2011.


    This was one of the most natural interview processes I have ever experienced. Received the typical email receipt, then a phone call from a very upbeat person, followed by an interview in person with several people about 30 minutes each. While interviewing I was always encouraged to ask questions and if I was comfortablef, needed breaks etc. Everyone acted as if they were happy that I took the time to look at HGS, and made to feel I had personal and professional worth. The position was represented accurately and I never felt like anyone was trying to hide anything or secretly give me any hidden warnings with a wink and a nod. I did not receive the job but felt like it was a positive experience. I left there wishing I could work there in any position because everyone was so positive.
