    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pathway Genomics.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the senior scientist that would be in charge of me should they offer me a position. She had no passion in her voice about her job and was cold towards me in my responses. It was as if she just wanted to get the interview over with so she could get on with her day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pathway Genomics.

    Interview

    Very polite people. Be prepared to answer hundreds of questions on OOP, PHP, SQL, Javascript, jQuery, CSS, and frameworks on both client and server side. It's an intensive test. Not sure if they give much credit to what you have accomplished, or can accomplish, or your problem solving abilities. They're quick in making a decision.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pathway Genomics (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was relaxed and to the point. The hiring supervisor and director at the time were super nice, laid back and didn't make you feel like they were waiting for any given moment to pounce on you or put you on the spot. That itself made me relaxed and easily talk about my qualifications.

    Quality Assurance Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pathway Genomics (San Diego, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Started being interviewed by two of their current QA Engineers. After about 45 minutes, the project manager and a software engineer joined in and asked question from the perspective of their positions. Finally, was joined in by the Director of Engineering who pretty much explained his expectation for the position and asked me if I had any questions. By they point, the process took a more relaxed, conversational tone.

    Interview Questions

    • The two QA engineers focused a lot on my knowledge and skills of quality assurance with question about different testing methodologies (white box vs black box), testing types (acceptance, functional, destructive, boundary, etc..), agile vs. waterfall, validation vs. verification and so on. The program manager focused more questions to determine my fit with within the team with inquiries about my being a team player, how well I work with others, dealing with priorities, time management, etc... The software developer challenged me to show him how my work would help him turn out better code.   Answer Question

    Node Developer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Pathway Genomics in June 2015.

    Interview

    I conducted a phone interview with JR and Jaime regarding their immediate need for a seasoned Node developer. While, ultimately, I did not get the position due to lack of experience on my part, I thought the interviewers did a good job of assessing my skill set. They were both approachable and made me feel comfortable with the process. JR did a good job of describing the position and Jaime followed up with appropriate technical questions. I got the impression that they were making good architectural decisions on the project they are working on and I will casually keep an eye on the forthcoming products.

    Cls Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pathway Genomics (San Diego, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted by email and asked to come in for an interview the following day. The Interview Team approached me with very grim faces. Right off the bat, it was off to a bad start. The one lady (who is retiring soon) was gracious. The other two were rude, one left early, and the other was very domineering and condescending (they still work there.) The questions they asked were very loaded and somewhat eerie and spooky. I tried to turn everything into a positive, but was hardly given a chance to explain my skills with all the negative paths they were trying to take. It seemed they wanted to end the interview early and would not let me explain my accomplishments. Why did they even ask me to come in in the first place? When asked why I was denied a position, they all simply ignored me. Weird!

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pathway Genomics (San Diego, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Original phone screening was pretty standard:

    A few days later, the in-person interview:
    Receptionist was not so friendly. I tried to make small talk but she was more interested in playing with her cellphone.

      Asked highlevel development questions, what would you use an adapter pattern for, what different patterns do you have experience with, what function would you use for...etc.   1 Answer
