    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Achaogen (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    In my interview process, I received two phone calls from two different research scientists. Both phone calls lasted around 30 minutes. This was later followed by in person interview (about 2 weeks after the last phone call). Very friendly process all the way through. Really smart, caring, and interesting people working here. They're working on really pressing stuff, with a great team, in a great location.
