    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The interview lasted thirty minutes. You are asked many questions around your skills. You are asked during the interview if you are willing to work more than 40 hours a week. Since I was an internal candidate I was told that the salary was non negotiable. As an internal candidate the interview was very relaxed.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Applied through website. Received an email with date, names of interviewers and location. It was a fairly rapid process, which suggested some desperation. The HR contact was very friendly and was eager to help move things forward. I was impressed

    Interview Questions
    • Standard situational questions and some from resume. They used an interview template where questions were read from a sheet and recorded. Know the core values and where your resume aligns with them. I asked about training and mentoring, which sounded like it was mostly getting thrown into the frying pan. I have heard the same from friends who worked there.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Associate Director and line manager who interviewed me were totally unprofessional and a bit too intense. I had another offer with a smaller company, and got the impression that they were desperately trying quickly fill some recent turnover. Made that mistake before.

    Business Development Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    I passed through 3 rounds of interview: 1. Another Business Development Specialist 2. My Supervisor 3. Director of Commercial Strategy. Interview was really relaxed and composed of mostly behavioral questions. They tested my industry knowledge with some general industry questions as well. I started network with the employees about 2 months before I submitted my resume. One of the interviewers was also the person who I networked with. Interview process was very simple. I got all the 3 rounds in a day, then they called me in 2 days to give me the offer. My experience was really great in their RTP headquarters. However the region is very small and if you like living in a big city, it may be hard for you to survive in RTP.
