I have been working at Cell Applications full-time
Positive atmosphere. Management and suits work close with staff but do not micromanage.
Lower ceiling for growth within the company, however the management and ownership has open ears.
Advice to Management
Need a Monday a morning meetings for entire staff. Dept heads could give updates on workflow and commentary, would be beneficial for everyone.
I applied online. I interviewed at Cell Applications (San Diego, CA) in May 2018.
The interview process for this position was fairly lengthy and there were several steps. I began by filling out a basic application with references, salary expectation and job experience (although I had already applied and was called back for this interview). After filling out the application two individuals from the team that I would be working with directly entered and interviewed me about my experiences and went through the basic responsibilities of the position. After this stage there were two exams given to me. The first was basic arithmetic and I had 12 minutes to complete it, the questions were organized by increasing difficulty and I did not finish the exam. The second exam was 30 minutes long and more applicable to cell culture work and gave a few hypothetical scenarios I also was not able to finish this exam entirely. After this stage the CEO came in and met with me 1 on 1. He gave more of an overview of the big picture goals of the company and had a lot of questions...... and also heckled me about my salary expectations. In the interview he mentioned a typical technician makes $35,000ish annually, when I was called back he offered $46,000 to take the position and he was not willing to negotiate higher.
