    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Genentech in February 2017.

    Interview

    2 weeks between each interview. I had an initial phone screen with average behavioral questions, another hangout interview with the hiring manager where I was asked more specific questions about my past experiences listed on my resume, and a final panel interview with more behavioral and technical questions pertaining to the position. Overall a pretty laid back and comfortable experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Genentech in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very pleasant, and what I expected as a graduate student. Contacted by email about a video interview. Interviewed a little over a week later. A couple weeks later I was offered the position after my reference was contacted. The first part of the interview involved a little bit of scientific background. What I have worked on with emphasis on the types of techniques I have used. This was followed by work environment type questions about collaborating/working independently during the internship. It ended with an explanation of the internship program, and the project I would be working on.

    Interview Questions

    • Would you be comfortable asking others for help if I (the hiring manager) am not available?
      Describe how you collaborate in grad school?

    Neutral Experience

    Interview

    The phone interview was a neutral experience. The interviewer read out a list of behavioral questions about my past experiences, qualifications, and interest in the internship. I had applied to the job long ago, and realized that the job wasn't really a good fit to my interests.
