    Marketing Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Roche.

    Interview

    I had two people interview me, one from HR and the other was a scientist at the company. Having two very different people interview me was interesting because I got to learn about two different areas in the company and how they work together to make the company what it is. It was a casual and informational interview at first and then they transitioned into the behavioral questions. Very easy and straight forward.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Roche in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted via the service WePow over the internet. After opening a link in a mail I was redirected to their website where a company video was shown. Afterwards I checked my equipment and could opt for two practise questions. After that the real interview began. Every question is asked once and you have only one attempt at answering it after a brief thinking time. The answer times ranged from 1 to 2 minutes. In total 6 questions were asked.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Roche.

    Interview

    I received an email from the hiring manager requesting a time to speak. I had recently relocated to another state to be closer to family. When hiring manager called about to conduct the phone interview, they seemed to not believe I lived in the city I was applying for -that I had just moved to. I had an address and etc to prove my residency. She told me that the company was not in the business of relocating people. I never heard back after that.
