    Research Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Affymetrix (Santa Clara, CA).

    Interview

    First round was a phone interview followed by an in person interview with key members of the team. It was intimidating because there were about 10 members in a round desk including myself asking questions in a sort of 'rapid fire' way.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were based on my past lab experience (e.g. PCR). Not too focused on technical but more so a personality fit assessment.   1 Answer
