    Senior Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Orchard Therapeutics (Menlo Park, CA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    There was a 30 minute phone interview with the manager and a Skype interview (because I was in a different state) with several others a few days later. Everyone was nice and the questions were mainly based on the resume and basically me walking them through my resume.

    Senior Category Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Orchard Therapeutics (Menlo Park, CA) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a screening call within a week or so, then had two phone interviews with the hiring manager, then an onsite interview with several interviewers. All the interviews were great, all of the meetings overshot the time slot, and I was able to extract a lot of information regarding the problems they are facing as well as the potential of their pipeline.

    Contacted by the recruiter to set-up an interview call with the HM. Phone interview went well, followed by a 2-hour Skype interview since the position was located in Menlo Park, CA and I was located remotely. Overall great experience; everyone on the team seemed friendly and humble.

    CMC Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Menlo Park, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Orchard Therapeutics (Menlo Park, CA) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Sent in my resume for a role in Menlo Park CA and received a message probably a week later by their ‘talent acquisition North America consultant’ asking if I would be available for a preliminary screening call the following week. I happily gave my availability but never received a call at the expected time, no reason-apology message received. I attempted emailing back this person twice, also used LinkedIn message but never got a response.
    .
    I applied to many roles and generally don’t care much if I don’t receive a response as I’m sure during initial screening they companies eliminate poor fits, but this is personal lack of manners of not making an expected call with no reason provided and not replying to personal emails at least with an awknoledglement type essays such as ‘thanks for applying we have decided not to move forward’ or similar. After all they contacted me first asking for a screening call, not the other way around! Just incredibly rude!
