Global Site Services- Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Covance in March 2015.

Interview Details

I applied online and got a request for a phone screen the next week. After the phone screen, a hiring manager contacted me to arrange an in-person interview for the following week. The in-person interview lasted about 2 hours and I interviewed with two separate people. They each asked 2-5 behavioral questions, which were very easy (assuming you're prepared). Everyone I spoke to was very personable and it was overall one of the most painless interviews I've had. The next day I received a call offering me the job. The overall process took about 2 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Covance in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was over the phone with HR. Then I interviewed with 3 people in GSS face to face. I was mostly asked behavioral style interview questions. Each person asked similar questions. All the interviewers were very pleasant and professional and on time. Each allowed me to take the time I need to answer each question. Interviewers answered my question about the work and their experiences at Covance.
