    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genentech (South San Francisco, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    Got referred by an employee working at the company but he did not know the hiring manager in person. I was phone interviewed first by a human resource representative. After a few emails with the hiring manager, we decided to meet informally at a local restaurant. Shortly into our conversation, the hiring manager offered me an opportunity to formally interview with a panel representing the whole group. It took a half day. A few days later, two personal references were checked and then I got the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genentech in September 2007.

    Interview

    I lucked out. The interview process was unusually short for this company. I met with 6 individuals during one day-and received a job offer the following day. In fact, the recruiter phoned me as I was driving home from the interview and essentially said the job was mine.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Genentech in June 2011.

    Interview

    This was a case of internal transfer. At Genentech, once you are inside the company, internal transfer could be made easy within the same global function, if you consistently deliver good results.

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate; but I would certain advise others do, especially if you are coming from external. However our recruiters are usually very transparent and honest about the upper limit which a particular position can offer.
