    It was a simple interview process. Strated with a phone screen by the corporate recruiter. Next 2 live in person panel interview sessions. Some were phone call others were in person. There were too many people involved in the process. They focused to much on have limited resources available. I was not convinced that training was important to the organization.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Genomic Health (Redwood City, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very good. 2 rounds with 4 people in each. Meet manager, CPO and peers to get a rounded understanding of the team and role. Each interviewer had different questions which was good as I didn't have to repeat the same responses every time. Very focused on how I would problem solve and drive change. One particularly nice aspect was reception were expecting me and welcomed me by name when I arrived.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Genomic Health (Redwood City, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process went very quickly. I applied on day 1, got a phone interview with a recruiter on day 3, got an in-person interview scheduled on day 4, had the in-person interview on day 7, and on day 8 I received an email saying "Thanks, but we're going to look elsewhere."

    The actual in-person interview took 5 hours. It included 3 video interviews and five in-person interviews, and about 15 minutes of downtime interspersed in there. It was very exhausting.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Genomic Health (Redwood City, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I had just applied online around 7:30am and received a call by 8:30am. Briefly ask me about my experience in recruiting IT positions then asked my availability to meet the following week in person. Initial phone screen followed by a 2nd round F2F interview with HR, 3rd round with a panel group of dept. heads. The position was an immediate need to support the IT group and also help support other projects. They needed to fill the position beginning June. After my interview I was told I would be receiving a call from them very soon, but ended up following up with them the following week saying I'm a great candidate, excellent interview and I have strong experience but moved forward with another candidate. Then suggested to continue monitoring the company job postings for upcoming positions in the future.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Genomic Health (Redwood City, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Two hours long, interviewed with different, key people in the department for about 30 minutes each. It was mostly casual in dress. Received call back with offer the next day - although, they were hiring kind of late in the year so maybe that's why. Applied a couple times because it was my first choice company throughout several months before receiving the phone screen. Recruiter/HR person can sometimes be vague about things which was kind of annoying.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Genomic Health (Redwood City, CA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    It was a two day process. Both days were full days of a series of 1:1 interviews. Everyone was very nice. Overall it was a pleasant experience, but intense and tiring. The interviewers came from various groups throughout the company and represented the company well. They were all enthusiastic about their jobs and vey passionate about the company mission. Their enthusiasm was contagious. I definitely wanted to get an offer after the interview process was complete.
