    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vertex Pharmaceuticals (La Jolla, CA).

    Interview

    I received an email to schedule a phone interview by the hiring manager (PI) very quickly after applying for the position. The phone interview was prompt, informal, and took about 30 mins. The PI is very nice, extremely laid back and enjoyable to talk to. Then I was scheduled for an onsite interview and met with 3 people for about 3 hours total including a 45 mins presentation. Everyone I talked to include the VP are extremely nice, intelligent, and friendly people. Then followed by an enjoyable lunch.

    Senior Scientist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Vertex Pharmaceuticals (San Diego, CA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was low key, probably due to the size of the site. People were curious and personable, most were a pleasure to talk with. The site had a good "vibe" and people seemed to enjoy working there. Communication after the interview has been severely lacking, despite offers to answer questions regarding the position/company.
