  1. Associate Scientist II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Singapore
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Illumina (Singapore)

    Interview

    Extremely long interviews with repeated questions from the assessments and similar questions which could have had the same answers.
    Was invited for a final interview and that I will receive a calendar invite soon, but then had no communication for over a month. No responses to emails and messages. Finally got a response informally from a mutual connection saying the position was filled.
    Interview

    What are primer dimers? What are the components in a PCR? How does chromatography work?
