    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genentech (South San Francisco, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I got an email that they wanted to do an informational phone interview for the position, I knew from friends who work there that this is a competitive program so I was excited for the opportunity. The day of the interview the phone call was only about 15 minutes and asked only very superficial questions so I think they had decided ahead of time they didn't want to proceed with me as a candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked about my job history and why I was interested in the program   2 Answers

    Interview Questions

    • One good question was you have a right cylinder on the counter that is glass and totally see through. There is liquid in the cylinder that appears to make it just over or under half-full. Using just the objects in this room (not much there) how could you determine more precisely if it is over or under half full?   2 Answers
