    Production Technician I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Diego, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Integrated DNA Technologies (San Diego, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Relaxed, casual, and comforting. I went in pretty nervous because this was my first interview at a biotech industry for a lab position. I was bummed out for a while, since I am a student and was applying for lab assistant-type positions for over half a year, so I really did not want to fail my interview.

    However, me being nervous was a waste of energy and the managers were great to talk to. The interview was about 50 minutes long, but only because the interview turned more into a conversation, so time went by quickly imo.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Integrated DNA Technologies (Coralville, IA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    The whole process took less than a week. I applied online. The next day I was called for a phone screen. They immediately asked if I wanted to come in for an interview and I interviewed for the position two days later. The interview was standard, and if you're a good person with a good attitude and a good outlook, then it will all work out. A week after that I was offered the job and emailed a letter of offer. This was a really quick process, and it was pretty straight forward.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Integrated DNA Technologies in February 2014.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Integrated DNA Technologies (Chicago, IL) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I have not interviewed in some time so I am unable to submit this information. They do have a guide given by HR for interviews so I am sure that it is comparable to the industry norm. There is room for classes to be given to ensure everyone is on the same page for the interview process and that way the hiring practices can be uniform across the board.
