    I worked at Quidel full-time (more than 5 years)


    Excellent training. Pleasant colleagues and extremely professional. The company was very efficient with manufacturing, customer service and technical support.


    Quidel has burned some bridges with distributors. They no longer have all of the contracts and positive relationships that they used to have. They have had high employee turnover in the last five years.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Quidel.

    Interview Details

    Went through a phone interview with HR first. Then another phone interview with a member of the hiring team. After that there was an in-person interview on site with the following people one at a time: three members of the hiring team, the hiring manager, the hiring director, an internal customer, and HR.

    Negotiation Details
    Changes were made to the verbally agreed upon offer: once over the phone to lower the salary, and once again when the papers came for signing to change the exempt/non-exempt status. The hiring manager promised to make good on the original offer after 6 months, but that didn't happen.
