    Quality Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online in May. I had a call in early June with the recruiting department. A week later I had with the hiring manager. Hiring Manager decided to brought me on-site for a 4 hour interview with 5 individuals. I asked them if they have any hesitation about my qualifications and they said that they did not, adding that in fact they were very happy. Two weeks later Clint Johnson called me to offer me a proposal about senior quality engineer (which is a level below the opening I applied for) with the excuse that I did not have experience in something that was not part of the job description. I accepted since they agreed to sponsor me a green card. Apparently they thought I was making less money than I am earning because then I receive an email to ask for references to make a final decision. They contacted my references and never heard back from them. They did not have the courtesy to reply my emails or tell me that they changed their minds.

    Quality Assurance Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was a former employee and applied to return. I managed to get scheduled for an interview for the same job position that I held at the company years ago. However, I was interviewed by a QA SUPERVISOR that had no prior education or experience in Quality Assurance but somehow managed to get promoted to a Supervisor position in less than a year. Mind you, prior to working at Dexcom as a Supervisor, she was Cashier at a clothing retail store. After I was interviewed, I was told by the recruiter that they thought I was not qualified for the position. They didn't even ask questions about my background, the interview mainly consisted of behavioral questions. I have an extensive background in working in the industry for years. So basically if you dno't have experience you get hired. My old coworkers were not kidding when they said this company has become a joke.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I saw the job posting on Glassdoor.com and submitted my application online. I was contacted by a recruiter and then had a long call with him about what I was looking for, my background and experience, and how my experience related so well to the position.

    As I was in the process of interviewing for other jobs, the recruiter said that he wanted to get my information in front of the hiring manager asap. Again, I was very interested in the position. But the recruiter never did pass on my information to the hiring manager. Over the course of the following weeks, he was in contact with me and kept saying he would send on my portfolio, and never did.

    I guess I don't see the point of recruiters who pretend to be interested and then never move forward. I ended up feeling like it was a lot of BS and told them I was interested in other positions and wouldn't be moving forward (after weeks in which the recruiter promised over and over to send on my information and then would say that he hadn't yet). Weird.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    taxing, misinformed, deceitful. First of all they told me things would move fairly quick in the process. It did not. It took a couple weeks. Also they were not very accomodating in the fact that they called me last minute to set up the interview and asked me "whats good for me?" however none of the times that were actually good for me, were good for them as she told me they were pretty much booked.
    So I took off work to go in on a Tuesday. The person who initially greeted me did not even shake my hand.
    The 2 guys I interviewed with did not make any eye contact during the screeening. I understand you are taking notes, but how about at least look up and acknowledge the candidate at least once?
    After the interview the HR department once again stated they move pretty fast and I should hear something in 24 to 48 hours.
    Low and behold 3 days went by, so I reached out to the HR Department at which point they told me they are going to reach out to the team to see how they felt. So you mean to tell me you have not done this already?
    So a week goes by, and I email the hr department again, and they tell me "as I told you before I was out of town last week and will folllow up when I get an answer from the team"
    First of all, you did not tell me anything about being out of town.
    Also there should be more than one person who works in HR and should be looking into things if there is a case where the person who handles the interview process is out of town.
    Also why would you go out of town on vacation and then in previous emails tell me I would hear something back quicker?
    I honestly had a bad feeling about this before the interview and should have went with my gut.
    I hear they pay well, and good luck to you if you are able to get past the initial screeners.
    The HR department is reallly unorganized and need some training in how to talk to people, like perhaps a people person course. Dont work in human resources if you do not like working with humans.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through their portal. Was emailed a technical question along with a self recording question. Submitted my answers and got a call from a hiring manager a few days later to schedule a conversation. Spoke about my background, interests and resume. For whatever reason he got confused and said I'll have to take the online assessment; called me back saying that I already did...

    The next step was a phone interview where I spoke about my experience, projects, etc. They called me back for an on-site interview a few days later. This process was 4 rounds of 2 people each.

    Received a call from the recruiter saying that I didn't get the job, although everyone seemed very positive during the interview.

    Interview

    First I had an phone interview with one of the recruiters. After the phone interview, I was invited on-site for another interview. It went really well and I really respected my interviewers. I was very nervous, but I did my homework on the company. It was a stress-free environment.

    Supervisor Technical Support Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview. I was told the hiring process was to be fairly quick. Wanted to hire me with ~2 weeks notice to my current position. They have a high need for t.s. supervisors. Per the reviews here of the company and salary in general, as well as personal goals, I shot high with my salary. Ultimately this is what lead to me not having an offer of any sort. I am ok with that. I know what I am worth and if it didnt show in the interview, I will do better next time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Phone call screen that was a short interview to see if the candidate matched basic qualities for the job and showed interest and maybe could get along with the team or do well in the working environment. Nice interviewer, wasn't too stressful or high pressure questions. More conversational than an interview normally might be.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Dexcom (San Diego, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty standard - included both a phone and in-person interview. No tough questions were asked; it was really focused on going over resume, experiences and personal work preferences. The Interview was as expected and the individuals I met with were very nice and informative (I'm sure the team is great to work with); however, there was a lack of response on their end afterward, which is unprofessional.

    Interview

    The interview process was just so so, nothing great. Read Glass door reviews beforehand so you know what to expect. The hiring manager was typical for the organization, said one thing but did the opposite while we were talking. It's amazing that there are so many companies that treat people like this.
