    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Gilead Sciences in October 2017.

    Interview

    The phone screen is about 45 minutes. The interviewer mainly focused on one of my previous research project, and asked me the details of this project (such as the intuition, how do you implement the method, is there other solutions). After that, I was asked some general questions, such as which programming language you use, which machine learning methods have you been exposed to. The next step will be an onsite interview.

    Compliance Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Foster City, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gilead Sciences (Foster City, CA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Complete waste of one full day, very inefficient. I met with the hiring manager for a lunch time interview. The Gilead cafeteria was loud and not appropriate for an interview. The hiring manager was arrogant and rude. As soon as we sat down for lunch, she blurted out that she "didn't get my professional background" --- excuse me? If that was the case, then why did you schedule a day's worth of interviews and waste my time this way? I found the entire process very annoying and irritating. Plus, it confirmed everything I had ever heard about Gilead: arrogant company, lousy culture and jerky people working there. Bottom line: an interview at this company is NOT worth your time.

    Interview Questions

    • Steady stream of back to back, 30 minute interviews, with everyone asking the same exact questions over and over again. No coordination of questions asked, very inefficient.   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Gilead Sciences (Foster City, CA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Gilead recruiter in Linkedin. After the first screening interview with the recruiter, it took two months to have a phone interview with the hiring manager. The in-site interview was scheduled very rushy. The in-site interview was extremely exhaustive. They may have in-site interviewed more than 10 candidates for the same position. I didn't hear back from the recruiter and the hiring manager after the in-site interview. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!

    First, there is a screening phone call with the talent acquisition agency that is fairly basic. It is followed by the phone call with the manager that will be overseeing you for the summer internship. Questions ranged from why Gilead, why this position, what are your future goals.
