After talking with 10 to 15 year experienced coworkers in their field that have applied for skilled positions. The consensus from everyone's experience is Illumina cares little for applicants time. It seems they have a policy to interview 6 candidates for a position which they have zero interest in considering only 1. Step 1. you do telephone screening with recruiter, Step 2 Telephone pre interview with Manager. Step 3 Talent recruiter emails you for availability to interview. Consensus was everyone selected first available interview slots on Monday . The Talent recruiter then emails your Availability for Friday. Every candidate replied they could be available for Interviews Friday. Then the Talent Recruiter emails each candidate a schedule of the interview with 4 interviews names/titles with a 4 hour expected amounted of time. These interviews are always schuduled two weeks in advance. On Monday afternoon of the week of interviews you will get a email they are changing the interview schuduled and you are only doing a 1 hour interview total with the whole team. Then Friday comes you attend interview and three members of the team are not available for the interview and you only spend 15 minutes with a talent recruiter. Then after the interview is over with in two hours the first contractor recruiter that pretty screened you calls to inform you Illumina has selected another candidate but thanks you.
