Application

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Gen-Probe (San Diego, CA).

Interview

They needed to fill an opening ASAP so the interview process was pretty quick. I applied directly through the Hologic website and got a call from their Staffing Agency (it apparently was a temporary position) and answered some basic screening questions that she had for me. Based on my interview with the Staffing Agency and my resume, I was called in for an in-person interview. I first interviewed with a group of the Scientists I would be working with and then the Research Associates I would be working with. In total, the interview lasted 1 hour and I was called a few hours later with an offer for the position.

Interview Questions

  • They asked me to outline the mechanism of Transcription-Mediated Amplification (the technology used in their nucleic acid amplification tests).   Answer Question
  • We went through my resume and I described my relevant experience.   1 Answer

Negotiation

It was a temporary position and I was offered a considerable pay raise so I did not negotiate.
