    Average Interview

    Interview

    Typical - telephone followed by in-person with a group of people. It was fairly typical until it got to the peers and supervisor of the hiring manager. It seemed they had their mind made up even before I walked in the door. Left with a feeling why did I travel all this way and spend the major part of a day for a position that I was not really being considered for.

    Interview Questions

    • During the interview, the questions were typical. Explain achievements, conflict resolution, and positive/negative experiences.   1 Answer

    Manager, Portfolio, Program and Alliance Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Seattle Genetics (Bothell, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    It was the worst interview experience I have had - and I have worked in management consulting. I was contacted by HR for phone screen. She asked me various situation based questions. I had questions regarding the position for which she replied that she is just a HR. She scheduled a 1:1 with hiring manager. During the discussion with hiring manager, it became clear that they are actually looking for a project manager with experience in later stages of drug development rather than a portfolio manager - which was fine as that is what the interviews are for. Anyhow, I dropped a note to the HR who had reached out to get the email id of the hiring manager to drop a thank you note as a courtesy - I never heard back. Well, they do need training in professional etiquette.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bothell, WA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Genetics (Bothell, WA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was an interesting interview, however it was a bit overkill having to be interviewed by numerous people for a simple contract position. The people interviewing me were great but the interview process was too long. I lost some job opportunities as I waited for the interview process to move along. It is a mistake I won't be making twice.

    Interview Questions

    • Basic behavioral questions by some of the team members who interviewed me (they were five people in total). Position-specific question by only one member in the group (ex: How comfortable are you working with Photoshop?) The one question that stood out the most was: "Can you work well under stress?"   1 Answer

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Seattle Genetics (Kenmore, WA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was approached by a Seattle Genetics recruiter about the position and the phone interview with her was only a couple of basic questions. I received notification from her regarding an interview with the hiring manager who was a Senior VP- so it was a couple weeks out.
    The hiring manager called a day ahead of our scheduled time and caught me by surprise. She hadn't reviewed my resume and was reading it backwards and then told me it was "very confusing". She then told me why they didn't like their current employee and how they were "picky" and had to "explain things to her all the time". She probed why I thought I would be a good candidate, considering there were "a ton of other internal applicants waiting".
    Based on the feedback from the recruiter and the job description, I presented my experience and skill set. She disagreed with everything that was STATED IN THE JOB DESCRIPTION and completely contradicted what the recruiter told me she was looking for. She sarcastically said she "it was a real pleasure". I really couldn't wait to end the conversation. Obviously, I wasn't called for an in-person interview. I was very disappointed and it left a bad taste in my mouth for Seagen.
