    Interview

    Three part, three different interviewers, very friendly interview process. This is a company every employer should model after. They contacted me, then set up a time via email, they slotted a 30min. slot and they called on time.

    Software Engineer, Backend Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Roche (Redwood City, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The Diagnostics group is planning to do some wonderful things and the people I interviewed with were really positive. But be careful. It’s a growing team and it was difficult to get them to articulate what they needed or wanted. With the exception of one interview session, I was not asked questions which aligned with the technology area I had specifically applied for. I was told by the recruiter and SW director that I was brought in for an interview to be considered for a few different positions since they were growing. I should have paid more attention to the red flags - it's uncommon to be told that you’re being considered for multiple opportunities and not see any job postings for other positions. But what really made me rate this as a negative experience was when I reached out to the recruiter for a status and got very vague information about the results and had to press for clarification on whether I was still being considered at all.

    Summer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Roche (Indianapolis, IN).

    Interview

    Received an interview after speaking with a recruiter at a university career fair. They went over my resume and then I got a call that night to schedule an interview. The interview was on campus and it was around 30 minutes long. It was not very conversational like other interviews I've been on. It was more of a question and answer interview with a little been of back and forth discussions with one of the two interviewers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Roche.

    Interview

    Received an email scheduling a phone interview for the following day. Received the call a few minutes late and the interviewer sounded very unorganized and not sure about what the position entailed. He was very awkward and not conversational in the slightest. I was told I would receive notice to schedule a video interview within the week, but did not receive any call or email whatsoever. Unprofessional and unorganized
