Benefits & Perks
Complete Genomics offers a comprehensive and competitive package to eligible employees.
I worked at Complete Genomics (More than a year)
My group, manager, and mentors, were great! They were always available to answer questions and explain concepts/methodologies.
As an intern, nothing to complain about!
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Complete Genomics (Mountain View, CA) in October 2015.
Apparently role has been open for months. Mentioned no vendor support for their hardware. Checked in with automated system, was given coffee. 3 engineers and HR at the end. Questions were based on each interviewer reading over my resume and asking me to speak to my experience on each subject.
