    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FivePrime Therapeutics (South San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    On site interview with hiring manager and rest of the team was pleasant but HR was rude and unprofessional. Stay away! I thought HR was supposed to be pleasant and be a people person, but not at Five Prime. Way to set the bar super low, HR!
