    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Genentech (Los Angeles, CA (US)).

    Interview

    The interviewer asked me to ask questions for 30 mins. It was very hard to keep asking questions instead of answering one. But the interviewer was very kind. It was rather a good learning opportunity to learn about the industry and the company.

    Interview

    First Application, then Video Interview, and finally the Final Round Interview (supposed to be held in person but changed due to COVID). The waiting time between each round was long and there wasn't much communication during that time.
