    Project Manager - Early Clinical Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Princeton, NJ

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Covance in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process took approximately 9 weeks. Two weeks following online submission, an email was received to schedule a phone screen that took place a week later. No communication nor followup thereafter. About 3 weeks later a telephone interview was requested and completed. No communication nor followup for another 2 weeks. Then, a F2F interview in Princeton (on Covance) was requested and scheduled 2 weeks later! As exhausting and disconnected as the preliminary interviewing process was, I remained positive as I was enthusiastically interested in the position and Covance at the time. Little did I know things would only get worse from there..

    A formal presentation was required for the interview which turned out to be a complete waste of time given how much time went into preparation. Five team members were expected to participate in the F2F interview - only 1 was present. Never mind the amount of time taken to work on the presentation (and the 4 wasted copies of the slides). I was instead asked to 'review' the slides during a group TC. The questions were general PM questions, nothing specific, situational, etc., which I found odd.

    At this point, considering the representing project team members and the slow interview process, I was no longer interested in working for the company which I expressed to HR. To top everything off, my credit card was charged for the overnight hotel stay in Princeton - twice! The charge was reversed immediately following check out, only to be charged/reversed again 2 months later!

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Covance in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    The initial contact was a phone call to 'screen' me as an applicant. After the initial call, I received and email inviting me for a full phone interview. This email arrived about 5 business day after the screening call. The telephone interview lasted about an hour and a half. Two weeks later I was invited onsite for a panel-style interview. The interview onsite lasted about 4 hours. After the interview onsite I was extended an offer.
