I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Roche (San Francisco, CA) in April 2015.

Started with a phone screen 3 weeks earlier. Then a call to come in with 1 days notice. Brought in for face to face interview with hiring manager. Spent 3 hours talking to 5 different people. It was pretty intense. I have not heard anything back yet but am hopeful.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Roche (Indianapolis, IN) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Adecco contacted me, telling me it was a "contract to hire" position. Adecco only did a cursory interview over the phone, but quickly decided I was a fit for the position. I interviewed with a director at Roche who placed a very high emphasis on "soft" skills, and then told me she wanted to bring me on board with the team as soon as possible. The interview was only an hour long and one-on-one. Fifteen minutes after the interview an offer was made. One note of caution: If Adecco brings you in for such an interview, don't make the mistake of calling the position "contract to hire" as this raised the interviewer's eyebrows.

    Reasons for Declining

    The base pay was good, the Adecco benefits were OK. I think that this was a great opportunity in terms of an improvement over the work I'm currently doing and a good way to get my foot in the door at Roche. With the offer in hand, I looked at the trade of a 1hr+ commute each way and relocating to that side of Indy. I found that neither option was favorable for my family life, or I would have accepted.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Barcelona (Spain)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Roche (Barcelona (Spain)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Apply online, telephone call with HR, video call with prospective manager, Skype Skype call with a panel of 4 (not including prospective manager), final interview with exec (video conference). Position was for an affiliate office, so did not offer the usual courtesies you would expect from a large international company (very "local" process). Surprisingly unprofessional and unpleasant process at times, however, this may have been cultural issue rather than company process. Be prepared to have to push for dates/flexibility on interview times, push for any information beyond the online information, come prepared with as many questions as possible for HR as there is little information provided in advance of any decision making. Be prepared to negotiate heavily for everything from a car park and annual leave to a relocation package and working hours.
