    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genentech (South San Francisco, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Long day of 8 or 9 interviews after phone screen. Workspace was open floor seating, which reminded me of a public library. No assigned seating. Was promised to be informed if I got the job or not within 2-3 weeks. It's been months and never heard anything - lack of integrity on their part. Campus is huge with 11,000 people working there. Easy to get lost in the crowd as the crowd is huge. Parking appeared to be difficult and there was alot of traffic getting into the campus at normal start work hour. Interviewers appeared weary about how much of your life Genentech demands.

    ***Update. I emailed my HR contact at Genetech requesting an update. She replied back saying she no longer works in that group and to contact HR. I have no other contact besides the recruiter. We'll see if she replies but I doubt it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Genentech in April 2011.

    Interview

    This was an internal interview for an internal transfer. I spoke with the hiring manager about interviewing, and was encouraged to do so. The hiring manager set up a series of interviews with their colleagues and management. A panel interview was set up with the people that this position would manage. In the end the person who won the position had a lot of support from his former manager, a colleague of the hiring manager.
