    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Gilead Sciences (Los Angeles, CA) in Apr 2020


    Phone screen, 1:1 w/ hiring manager, then 3 hour zoom interview with many different people on the team (would have been on-campus if not for COVID). Mostly general questions about experiences, education, interest in the company/position and a few technical questions.

    Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
