    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Premier Research (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    Initial interview was by telephone, which involved pretty standard questions like "What was a time you had a conflict with your coworker and how did you resolve it?" This was followed by a face-to-face interview with the clinic supervisor, which was mostly an opportunity to get to know the supervisor and figure out if the job is a good fit for you.

    Senior CRA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milan (Italy)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Premier Research (Milan (Italy)) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted via LinkedIn to connect to the internal recruiter. After connecting we spoke where he mentioned he had a position for a Senior CRA. I provided my CV, but afterwards he told me that the position had been already taken and that only a position for CRAII was available. I told them I only wanted Senior CRA, this was accepted and a face-to-face with the country manager. The interview was very easy, my CV was reviewed, it became evident that I had sufficient experience for the job. It was also evident that they were urgently trying to fill a vacant position very quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. I mentioned that I had experience in startup activities and contract negotiation, but was informed that CRAs are not responsible for this. I was asked what therapeutic areas I had experience in.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They provided me with a proposal, I stated that I'd think about it. I came back to the internal recruiter with a counteroffer which was accepted two days letter.

    CRA Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Premier Research in January 2010.

    Interview

    Phone interview was extremely in depth on my skills and experience, lots of situational questions. Can't really remember it all but I do remember that the face to face felt like it was more of an interview to decide if I was the right fit with the company personality wise rather than skill set. The company seemed to put a lot of trust in finding the right candidate that they could train.

    Interview Questions

    • What was the greatest challenge you faced as a new CRA?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There were no negotiations, they made the offer and would not consider the counter offer I gave.

    Interview

    Applied online and received feedback (within a week) with a follow-up phone call. Next step was a 1:1 interview with local manager followed by a phone interview with team lead based in US.
