Research Associate II Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA (US)
No Offer
Neutral Experience

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Illumina (San Diego, CA (US)) in August 2018.

Interview

In the first step, I completed an application. A week later, they had an online interview using HireVue. After another week, I heard back that I was having an in-person interview; it took 3 weeks to schedule this as the HR person had some personal things come up. During the in-person interview, I met with 7 members of the potential team. It took them 3 weeks to respond about my status.

Interview Questions

  • Online questions included: What is your background? Why interested in the company? Describe your experience with problem solving.

    In person included questions similar to the online questions and also: What do you know about our instruments? Why hire you? There were a few hypothetical scenarios and how I'd respond.   Answer Question
