Research Scientist - Molecular Biology Interview

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sapphire Energy (San Diego, CA) in August 2009.

Interview

Phone interviewed with HR, followed by phone interview with Direct Supervisor, followed by in person interview. Process prior to in person interview were quite professional, but workplace chaos became apparent at in person interview. By the end of the process, wherein I received and declined the offer (salary level was reasonable for the position, but not the expected effort level), HR manager was clearly unimpressed with the company and values.

Interview Questions

  • Several of the interview panels re-inforced the "minimum 60 hour workweek", and concommitant internal competetion.   Answer Question

Reasons for Declining

It very much appeared to be an exploitative environment, wherein early stage researchers (RAs) were expected to carry an unusual amount of the load, while middle management were the only onles positioned ot benefit from company successes.
