I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories

Interview

I did a phone interview with the hiring manager for an internship position. The questions were realistic and the conversations were fluid. I can tell they weren't reading off the questions from a piece of paper. I got an offer a few weeks later.

Interview

Growth depends heavily on department and manager, very low pay raise, decent bonus payout. Management is questionable at many instances. I have realized that you don't get promoted unless you apply for an open position. If there aren't any, you may not get promoted regardless of performance.

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Fremont, CA) in May 2022

Interview

Complete waste of time for me and my references!!! My application was presented via a recruiter who has been great throughout the process. We presented my profile, salary expectation, etc way before the rounds of interview. First round was phone interview with the hiring manager followed by teams meeting + presentation with a bigger group that included R&D, other team members and Sr.Management. I was told I cleared the rounds and was asked to provide references which also blazed through. Now the typical radio silent period starts where for 2 weeks no response, mind you all after I cleared rounds of interview and was told the team is very keen to give an offer. Via the recruiter I was getting message that they cannot offer the pay I expect. I mentioned I am open to discussion if they call me but never did I get any. Eventually, via the recruiter I came to know how much they can offer and the number was not only off from what i was expecting but atleast 30% less than current market rate and what current salaries are posted on Glassdoor. My only question is if you already knew what my estimate range why go through the entire process. Respect the candidates time and efforts!
