    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Genentech in March 2019.

    Interview

    My application status changed to "Under consideration" 2 weeks. After another 2 weeks, the manager reached me through email to set up an interview for the following week. There were around 100 applicants and only 12 got an interview.
