    Director, Data Science Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Bio-Rad Laboratories (Hercules, CA).

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and a whole-day interview on site. The recruiter was told the job was in Pleasanton and I discovered the job was in Hercules the day of the all-day interview. The whole process was largely a waste of time. I had checked the job location twice before accepting the all-day interview. The sense of the company is that it is a closed shop, with people having worked there for a very long time. This suggests a happy working environment but insular. Beautiful location in Hercules.
