    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DexCom (San Diego, CA (US)) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews at Dexcom. the first was a short phone interview, and the last 2 were face to face interviews. I was initially contacted by the immediate supervisor of the department, who was very professional and friendly. I was then contacted by the HR personal to set up the interview times and dates, after each phone call I was told I would be sent a confirmation with the time and location of the interview, at the end of each day the confirmation was never sent, so I would have to contact the hr personal to remind her to send the confirmation. My first face to face interview was with the immediate supervisor, I was asked about my skills, work experience, it was basically a recap of the application that I had filled out, it lasted about 30 mins and I was given the opportunity to ask questions about the position. the 3rd face to face interview was about 2 and a half hours long. I first spoke with the hr personal, then the immediate supervisor, then two employees from the department from which I was applying, then the director of IT and president, and then finally 2 more employees from the department. Everyone basically asked me the same questions in regards to work history and skills. Everyone who interviewed me was highly professional except for the 4 employees. They unfortunately used a lot of foul language and joking during the interview. A couple of them even expressed how much they didn't enjoy their jobs at times. This type of behavior can definitely give someone a bad impression of the company overall. I was told by the hr personal that within one week I would receive notification if I was chosen for the position or not. After that week had passed I did not receive any notification. I sent the hr personal 2 email inquiries but got no reply. I had to take it a step further and contact the immediate supervisor who replied very quickly, he informed me that the position was given to someone else but he will gladly keep my resume on file.

    Interview Questions

    • Rather than asking technical questions, the interviewers ask scenario questions to range your level of troubleshooting and decision making. They want to gauge whether you over think a simple situation or under think a tough situation.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DexCom (San Diego, CA (US)).

    Interview

    I applied for the position online. Within a week, I received a call from the department supervisor and asked me if I would be available later for a phone interview. During the interview, I was asked about my experiences and future goals. The manager also told me more about the position and what the plans and responsibilities were for the position. before the interview concluded, I was asked if I had any questions of my own. The manager said that if I heard back in a week, it meant that they were interested. If I didn't hear back in 2 weeks, it meant they decided to go with another applicant.
