    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GenScript.

    Interview

    They asked for presentation of graduate research followed by four to five individual interview. The process lasts about half day. This is a junior level position and prior experience is not a must. They ask a lot of technical questions and some behavior questions. It's not difficult to prepare for it.

    Inside Sales Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at GenScript (Piscataway, NJ).

    Interview

    The first call was with HR ~30min with basic questions about what I was interested in and the openings they had - overall, a pleasant conversation. The next call was with the hiring manager ~45min-1hr about technical background - overall, nice person on the phone. I was then invited for an on-site interview that consisted of a presentation based on my education and experience, then several 1:1s.

    I found particularly disturbing the attitude of one of the interviewers, who had a very sarcastic, rude, and condescending attitude during the 1:1. I asked questions about the company, previous experiences that led to the interviewer's current position, etc. I wish the HR person had been there to hear this, but responses were like "I'm here because of family," and "they pay me really well." All with a smirk that I found completely inappropriate, damaging to the image of the company, and lack of incentive for new hires.

    Another interviewer was literally shaking his/her head when walking out of the conference room where we had the 1:1. Right off the bat I knew (1) I was not liked, (2) no offer was coming my way, and (3) what kind of team dynamics it would be.

    They were trying to sell themselves as a company where everybody is nice and approachable. Sorry, but I absolutely did not get that impression from my short visit. I was there because I was truly interested in the company and position yet. I haven't heard back to know whether I'm getting an offer or not, I'm pretty sure I won't just because of the attitudes and expressions towards me, but if for some miracle I do end up getting an offer, I will be grateful but respectfully declining it. I can deal with deadlines, lots of workload, long hours, pushing to get more clients and achieve goals - that's great because, if I do the job, I know I'll see a reward. However I cannot deal with mistreat and disrespect. If this was during the interview process, I cannot even imagine what it would be like when working with/for them...

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GenScript in July 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview twice. Interviewers are polite and nice. Asked lots of questions about experimental experiences. If you want this job, you should show more about selling potential and enthusiasm. It will be a tough position and won't be a 9am to 5pm job. Work hard and you will get more-by interviewer.

    I applied online. I interviewed at GenScript (Piscataway, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The entire interview process took more than 3 months. They work very slowly to get to hire someone in for the interview. They are careful in what they hire, even for an entry position. Though they ask for higher degree for an entry position, they were not willing to pay for the price

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GenScript (Piscataway, NJ).

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview with HR, then a very lengthy and time consuming test assignment. This was followed by an onsite interview consisting of maybe 6 mini-interviews about 30 min each including over the phone with execs in China. Lastly, I was contacted by phone by the CEO since no decision can be made without his involvement and personal approval.
