    Molecular Biology Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quidel (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Behavioral questions. 4 rounds with different individuals in the team. Generally about your background, your interest in this field and your long term goals. They took one month to get back to me for the second round. After the final round, and after following up for 5 weeks with different members of the team regarding my candidacy, never got a response. Finally got a reject almost two months later. You should make an effort to inform candidates about their status so they aren't left in the dark. It is highly unprofessional. Please have the courtesy to respond to emails (both HR and marketing team members)

    Interview

    The interview process we was easy, I chatted with the HR associate and a few of the team members. None of the questions were difficult. The hiring process was far more in-depth than it needed to be and they rush you into signing the offer letter. It turned me off from the company and I declined the offer.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quidel (San Diego, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    This was a fairly straight forward on-site interview with the product manager and HR person. The interview felt like more like a conversation. There were no standard interview questions used. It was not until later that the HR coordinator mentioned that they were considering an internal candidate. At that point, the interview seemed like more of a formality on their end.
