    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QIAGEN.

    Interview

    Applied online, immediately and early the next morning I got an email from HR to schedule a 30 minute phone interview later that week. Interview was relatively easy, just explaining the position, asking questions about my resume, and my asking questions I had for them.

    A few days later, I heard back and scheduled an on-site interview. First group to meet with were some team members, went pretty much the same as the phone interview. Next person was with HR, who told me the salary I listed was unreasonable and that companies automatically discard applications with too-high salary requirements (yet they still invited me to interview, contradicts what they said). Last person to meet with was the hiring manager, asked me if I had more questions.

    They didn't have the common courtesy to send a rejection email, even after taking the effort to meet with them in person.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QIAGEN.

    Interview

    Met with HR, then two technical people, lunch, and a higher level executive. The technical questions were very straight-forward, they wanted to hear what I had been doing in my previous job. They spent time describing their company - they did a good job of trying to see if we would be a good fit.

    Clinical Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Collegeville, PA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at QIAGEN (Collegeville, PA (US)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I'm sure this has changed over the years as I applied over 3 years ago. Initially, there was a phone screen, then a week later I had a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager. Two days after, I interviewed with the same hiring manager and the sales director. The final check was a phone interview with the VP of sales. The whole process took about 2-3 weeks before the job offer.

    Bioinformatics Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at QIAGEN (Redwood City, CA (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    30 minutes phone screen, then coding and other assignments, and then onsite interview. It is tough but within a reasonable range of difficulty. Phone screen is more about my career interests and general background. Coding and other assignments should be relatively easy for people with average background in bioinformatics. Onsite interview involves several 45 min conversations with more challenging questions from both bio and computational sides.

    Interview

    After a preliminary phone interview, was a given an online coding evaluation requiring intermediate coding ability. Interviewed on site about two weeks later. Questions seemed to be thought up on the fly and mainly based on NGS analysis, coding, and about things on Resume.

    Business Controller Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Germantown, MD (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at QIAGEN (Germantown, MD (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Interview started on the phone with Germany with the direct supervisor of the position and ended with a on site interview in the US headquarters. Overall all the process was good starting from the first phone call until the day I had to go to the main office to meet the management team. The bad side is that since November 2018 until March 2019 nobody was able to give me a response about the process until a seemly automated message came back saying another candidate already filled the position (this only happened after many attempts from my side to get a response, mostly to close the process in my end) I got the feeling after this process the HR team in the US is not really professional y would encourage anyone applying to the company in the US to make really sure you talk to many different persons in HR and not only the recruiting team before you set sail to try to join them. I still think it is a good company and the location was nice.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at QIAGEN in January 2017.

    Interview

    3 rounds 2 phone screens and one in person with 2 people. The folks were lovely. Overall I thought my interviews went really well. Got verbal confirmation I got the job, 3 days later got a call saying the job was cut from their budget. I think I dodged a bullet but the people seemed great. Disappointed.
