10 yr Navy veteran. Met Genentech at a job fair and one video interview later I was offered a position.

Manufacturing Technician (Current Employee)

I have been working at Genentech as a contractor for less than a year

ProsWas "plucked" out of the veterans needing to apply their military expertise to a strong company.
Very easy hiring process. (I must have absolutely nailed the video interview because 2 short months went by and they offered me a technician position.
*note* I have not started working yet. Still doing paperwork/background etc.

ConsNot sure if I work "FOR" Genentech or "AT"Genentech as a contractor. (I know it sounds bad that I don't know but I was hired very easily).
