  1. Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Paso Robles, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Santa Cruz Biotechnology (Paso Robles, CA) in Nov 2020

    Interview

    Applied through online job board and received a call to schedule interview. The initial interest seemed to randomly transition into apathy as the supervisor portrayed being busy. Furthermore, once something was scheduled the personnel actually forgot that they had scheduled an interview at said date and time!? Filling out a paper application upon arrival was an outdated process.

    The actual interviews were outside in a nice setting with simple Q&A. The 3 people that I spoke with were friendly and I never felt nervous. My qualifications were way beyond what they were seeking. I have been committed to settling in the area but potentially passed for younger inexperienced candidates which are well known for hopping jobs (I've been in labs for over 10 years, the newer generations are predictable in this way).

    I might try again in the future, but the overall reviews of the company are ominous. The main bad impression I experienced was they could not schedule an interview around my present employers work schedule. All my other Paso interviews were flexible and accommodating. I lost out on 2 hours of work (unpaid) and nobody expressed any appreciation for my sacrifice. Losing money for an interview with no job offer for simple entry level lab roles was a novel experience.
    Interview

    They kept asking why I relocated to the area. They gave me the impression that past employees did not stay long. It's a town designed for wine tourism, not an economy for settling down long term.
