Director, Human Resources Interview

Application Details

I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Quintiles.

Interview Details

The initial contact was via e-mail followed by a phone interview. Great interviewer, very motivated to send my resume to the hiring manager. Because the interviewer's boss was coming to the job location, he will interview me in person instead of the hiring manager. The interview took place at his hotel restaurant at dinner time. Not the best environment to conduct an interview. He was eating while I was speaking (I order soda only), he was unprepared and asked questions unrelated to the job. What a disappointment, this is the person that is giving feedback to the hiring manager and will decide for a go or no go. I asked myself; are interviewers really prepared to ask the right questions, those "relevant" to the position? I look for opinions here based on your experiences.

Interview Questions
  • I lived in NJ for 20 years and moved to MA 5 years ago. Five times he asked the same: do you like MA more than NJ? why? The position I interviewed for is based in MA, the company has no locations in NJ. I did not know how my answer be rated, so I gave him neutral comments. Three times he asked me: what would I do the first day at work? Five times he told me that his meal was good. Technically this is not a question, but demonstrates how unprepared and distracted this senior executive was.   Answer Question
