Question 1 of 35

Doing what is right at all times is important at Gilead Sciences. Talk about a time you showed integrity in your work.

"For the last four years during my college training, I worked a great retail job that helped me pay the bills and pay my way through school. In this role, I was responsible for the cash deposit every day I worked. There was never a discrepancy in the deposits because I took pride in my work. Handling large amounts of cash and transporting on one's own could be very tempting for others to be dishonest, but not for me."
