    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Genetics (Bothell, WA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online through their website. Waited 2.5 weeks before being contacted through email for a phone interview with the hiring manager. Scheduled a phone interview for a few days later.

    Overall, the 30 min interview was direct and to the point, but wasn't too tough. They asked questions about programming, software development, and stuff on my resume. Afterwards, I asked my questions—be sure to ask good questions.

    After a week, I was given an offer by the hiring manager.

    It consisted of a brief phone interview with the hiring manager. She was friendly and only asked two questions. I didn't take as much to prepare for this interview as I should have and should have had better questions to ask her at the end.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Genetics.

    Interview

    There will be three stages involved in the hiring process.

    1) The HR person will first contact you and they will schedule a HR round interview which will involve a telephonic conversation of 30mins. Nothing technical or domain related will be asked here. They are just going to test your communication skills at this stage asking behavioral questions

    2) The next step will be a interview with the hiring manager. They will ask you questions related to the Domain for which you are applying. For Ex if it is Clinical Trials or Regulation policies or Database Management

    3) An On-site interview will be conducted. I did not reach this stage so cannot comment what it is like.

    Scientist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Genetics (Bothell, WA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR for a 30 minute phone call. Expected progression was HR->hiring manager->on-site.

    The HR rep was pleasant enough but clearly reading off a script which gave the call a dry, clinical feeling. The questions were generic and uninteresting, more of an interrogation than a conversation. At one point, I was asked to name a personal deficiency, which I did and then explained how I was addressing it. The follow up question: So how are you addressing this issue? sigh.

    So far not great, but no deal breakers yet. That happened when we got to the expected salary, where they gave 95-105, below industry standards. At this point I lost interest.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Genetics (Bothell, WA).

    Interview

    Applied online, heard from HR a little over a week later. Scheduled phone screening with HR, then had a 30 min. phone interview with hiring manager. Was informed that the team would bring in around 2-3 candidates for an onsite interview, and that I should expect to hear from HR about coming in. The next week scheduled the on-site interview which ended up being a 5 hour ordeal with 8-9 different people. Sounds brutal, but was actually nice to get time to calm down and to meet potential colleagues. Most people were very nice and open to questions. Everyone seemed to get along with each other and to genuinely be friends. Heard back from hiring manager very quickly and was sent an offer that week.
