I applied online. The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Mar 2022

Interview

really short, like 15 mins, two interviewers, fast pace. mainly talk about my resume. Only 2 rounds of interviews, the first one is a phone interview with the HR. It has been 2 months and I have not received any feedback. The applicant dashboard still says 'interview completed, under review. I don't know what takes them so long. Low work efficiency. I assume they found a better candidate and just forgot to update the dashboard.

Interview Questions

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

Interview

The interview process started with a phone screen which asked basic questions. Then, I received a take-home tech assessment to complete. After I submitted the tech assessment, I was then called for an interview that was supposed to go over my tech assessment. However, instead of going over my tech assessment, they instead asked me a bunch of stats questions (for a dev role???) and nothing relevant to my technical assessment at all. I was completely blindsided.

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Feb 2022

Interview

Two rounds of interviews/conversations, both were with a panel. The first included the hiring manager and two senior staff, the second included peers. The group I was interviewing with functions somewhat as an autonomous start up within the organization, so the format was relatively informal/conversational.

The interview process was a little longer than most places, however the recruiters were very friendly and easy to converse with. The response is pretty fast when you reach out to them for follow up or any other questions you have with them.

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center (Seattle, WA)

Interview

Just finished an interview with a recruiter who was very abrupt and cut me off multiple times. She would ask me to "describe my experience" and then rudely cut me off when I started detailing my prior responsibilities. She would also phrase questions confusingly and then get upset when I answered her questions. The position was listed as remote but then she seemed to take issue that I wouldn't move to Washington. This was probably one of the worst phone screens that I have ever encountered. I believe someone who left a negative interview review here may have spoken to her as well...If I were offered a position here, I would decline because she was such a bad representation of the company. Really left a sour taste in my mouth. I almost want to email her back now and withdraw my application. Will update if I hear back.
