    Senior Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Pleasanton, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Tech talk first, then 8 rounds of individual interviews. Being asked a lot of basic science questions. I can see they tried to distinguish every interviewers' role by dividing each rounds for different purposes, but since there were so many rounds, many sessions were not making too much sense. Overall I liked the team very much, but they are looking for someone who's more hands-on so that can start filling in the blank in the first day of hire.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Pleasanton, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was called by the recruiter and then the manager reached out to me for a phone interview that was done in a two day window. The interview was set up the following week, met with 6 people for 3 hours. It has been a little over a week and no word, which is frustrating.

    Engineering I Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Pleasanton, CA).

    Interview

    Interviewed for the Digital Biology Center in Pleasanton. First screened by phone, asked basic knowledge questions (i.e. What is PCR, How does it work?) then asked to come in for an onsite interview. Hiring Manager and another engineer gave me a two part interview. First was a standard Behavioral/Resume based interview and the second part was a practical interview that tested your basic lab knowledge. Was told I did very well and booked for a final HR Screening.

    HR Screening never happened, called back later to find out the position had been put on hold.

    • The practical was the most unexpected part. It was fun and refreshing to actually do though.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Pleasanton, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Full day of interviewing with current employees from a varied background of disciplines. I felt very comfortable and welcomed. I truly enjoyed the process. A good overview of the facility and time to meet with some of the people that would be my coworkers. I was surprised at some of the questions as I felt they where a bit basic. Some of the members in the interview team wanted to share their feeling about Bio Raf as much as I wanted to learn about Bio Rad.
