    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Roche (Pleasanton, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I had mixed feelings about the phone interview. They asked questions about how my major may be relevant to the job. One of the questions they asked was "What will your daily job life be like?" In my opinion, shouldn’t they be the one to tell me what daily working life there is like instead of me guessing and hoping that I am saying what they want. They never told me when they would get back to me and I have no way of contacting them.
