    Scientist I (Temp) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Cytokinetics (South San Francisco, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I gave a 30 min PowerPoint given to a diverse group of ~20 employees on my dissertation and postdoctoral work researching cardiovascular physiology and pathology. This was followed by one-on-one interviews with each member of the team. The the HR coordinator called the next day to negotiate salary and this information was forwarded to the temp agency who offered the contract. They were very direct and efficient.
