    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GenMark Diagnostics (Carlsbad, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on their website and within a week I was contacted by Sonya in HR via email to set up a phone screen. On the phone screen Sonya was professional and very easy to speak with. She offered suggestions and helped guild me through what was to be expected at the in-person interview. Within a week I was contacted again via email to schedule the interview. At the interview I met with Jenny and Daniel from the QA dept. and they were great as well. They made me feel comfortable and asked very good questions regarding QA. In addition, they showed me the product samples I would be inspecting. Overall a really good experience. Follow-up about 5 days later was an email from Sonya letting me know they picked another person with more experience. Although disappointed, I understood. I did not get the job offer (congrats to the person who did) but I still must say it was a very positive experience. GenMark seems to have a great team!

    Interview

    Was initially introduced to the SVP - HR through an Employee Referral in regards to a potential need for a Head of Talent Acquisition. Had an initial informal meeting over coffee with the Head of HR. She was very knowledgeable, easy to talk to and passionate about the organization.

    Over the next month or so, we kept in touch and I was invited on-site for a couple rounds of interviews with the Leadership team. Everyone I met with was smart, professional and excited about the future of the organization and it's upcoming product launch. I was also given the opportunity to meet with the CEO and found his energy to be infectious.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GenMark Diagnostics (San Diego, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Novasyte in Newport Beach for a Monster.com resume posting. They coached me and aided in my research about GenMark before submitting my resume. I also conducted a pre-screening interview with Novasyte prior. I then had a phone interview that consisted of skills and personality questions as well as background questions to determine my level of understanding of the position, as this position aids in technical customer service with or without travel requirement.
    The prep made for an easy and confident interview. However I was told that although I was not a direct fit for this position she felt I may fit better for a QC position and would apply my resume to that department, I would then hear back from in two weeks. I never heard back.
