    Interview

    Unprofessional disorganized and downright rude Draconian
    And disgusting. They put a job description which was vague and written for them to gauge the applicants they would get accordingly. It took over a year for them to get a phone screen going . The Human Resources person was completely disrespectful and said the interview was with one person it was not . It was a panel and it was completely disorganized and insulting . They did not read it and they also kept mentioning I worked at a company which I never had. They didn't bother to ask if I can hear them or hey sorry this is a panel. The director is a joke and a complete air head

    Interview

    I got am email to be interviewed by a hiring manager. We made a appointment and set up the time. At beginning, the cell phone is not good. We change a regular phone. The Manager describes the company and his background and start to ask me question.

    The overall experience is great. I may be "over qualified" to my feeling. I don't think that I will be hired

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dynavax Technologies (UC Berkeley, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process started with 2 phone screening for which Dynavax Representatives were No Show. I never received any apology or explanations for it. After 2 no show finally 2 phone screening interview and then in-person and than came an offer. Every thing the HR recruiter told me was a lie. I am not sure if it was HR or the hiring manager but they put no effort. Really bad experience.
