    One telephone screen, one interview in person, then a three round interview. Very friendly people overall. The case was somewhat difficult, not too bad if you are prepared. Recruiter worked fast and had meetings set up.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview

    Very general phone screen through a 3rrd party recruiter initially and then webex with a functional manager. Felt more like a conversation, know your resume, why you left each job. What your goals are, what you expect at Quintiles, know your EDC systems and which therapeutic areas you prefer to work in if hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the oridnary was asked. Everything was expected and the interview overall was pretty easy. I have had more difficult interviews.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Even though I was a offered a senior CRA position from current CRA 2 level at another CRO, the salary was matched instead of an increase which was odd. I would think a senior position would require more work and the incentive to leave the current CRO wasn't there. They have 3 levels of Senior CRAs so wasn't sure how it would even help to fast track moving up the ladder.
