    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.

  • This week marks our 10th anniversary of Genentech Gives Back— a special week of employee volunteerism and fundraising. While we're coming together virtually this year, our passion for giving in service of science, patients, and people remains just as strong. At a time when COVID-19 is exacerbating existing economic and healthcare disparities and events of the past weeks have cast a spotlight on racial injustice and inequity in our country, the needs of our communities have never been greater. We’re proud of our employees as they come together virtually to make a difference, and we're grateful to our partner organizations for working tirelessly to drive much-needed change.
