Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gilead Sciences (Foster City, CA) in May 2021

Interview

Interview with Gilead Sciences is the best experience by far. It is more of a process to understand the company mission and goal, my role, and to meet the future team. Interview process was long and thorough, there were a lot of technical and behavioral questions, but you will be fine if you know your stuff. You also get feedback during the interview process which will help you in preparing for the next ones. Recruiting process was really fast. It was completed within 4 weeks.

Interview Questions
  • Lots of technical and behavioral interview questions. At the end, you will also give a presentation. The behavioral questions are conventional behavioral questions that you have read about. However, some of them are tailored towards the expectations from your role. I will say, just prepare on the technical recruitments from your role and also prepare on conventional behavioral questions and the ones related to your role.

1st round (HR screening interview). 2nd round - hiring manager. 3rd round: 5 or 6 separate 1:1 interviews with stakeholders that may or may not work with this position. 4th round: even more separate interviews. HR recruiter even lost track on what's going on.

Interview Questions
  • What will you do if the team you work with have different ideas than your department head?

Interview

Really positive interview process! I met for about 30 min with the manager of the department I would be working in. Really kind person who explained the internship well and the soft skills that would make a great intern. Was offered the internship a few days later. Best interview process I’ve ever gone through. Incredibly low stress.

Average Interview
Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gilead Sciences (Raleigh, NC) in Apr 2021

Interview

I was contacted almost non-stop by the recruiting team then I agreed to an interview with the hiring manager. I met with her, it went well, moved on to the next stage. Met with several people over a couple days. Then the recruiter reaches out and urgently wants to schedule an interview for the next day. I respond to schedule a time to meet but never hear back. This is when the "slow fade" commences. It's really disrespectful to treat potential candidates like this especially after telling them that you're moving them on in the process. Gilead may be a great company, but their recruitment team is terrible.
