    Applications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burgess Hill, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Roche (Burgess Hill, England) in February 2019.

    Interview

    First round of interview on the telephone was a bit of a surprise. Applied for tissue diagnostics but was shortlisted for POCT role. Second round was fifteen days later, was about 90 minutes including a presentation. Overall experience was great, panel members were very interactive and made me feel comfortable.
