    I applied online. I interviewed at Cytokinetics.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR for a phone interview. Then I was contacted a couple days later for on-site interview with 5 people. Everyone was very nice and I can tell the employees liked working for the company. HR contacted me a few days later and told me I didn't get the job. Although I didn't get the job I did enjoy meeting everyone and I liked how they treated me in the entire process.

    Contract Senior CTMA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in South San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cytokinetics (South San Francisco, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through a recruiter. Heard back about a request for an interview within a week. The interview lasted about 2 hours and was with 3 different people (1 from HR, 1 from Clin Research, 1 from ClinOps). It only lasted this long because they didn't have a clear schedule carved out and had trouble finding everyone.
