    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview

    Entire process took way too long (3 months). During that time I went through multiple phone screenings that essentially were asking the same thing. For my case interview, I was brought in office where I was greeted by an entirely dead, number crunching environment. Those who interviewed me seemed more passionate about their job title than the work or the company itself.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I did a brief phone interview, then a writing test, then a presentation and web conference interview, then a video conference interview. Everyone was very pleasant, polite, and thoughtful. They were detailed and forthcoming in response to the questions I asked about the company and the position, and gave a very positive impression of what it would be like to work with their team. Due to the fact that the teams are located in multiple cities, all interviews were conducted by phone or web conference. Waiting to hear about an offer.

    CRA Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview

    Initial screening interview with HR staff followed by 1 hour long phone interview with two line managers. Questions were as expected for the role. Overall a positive experience but 'lack of experience' as a reason for not being offered the role, when this is abundantly clear from my CV, did make me feel like my time was being wasted.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in March 2015.

    Interview

    There was an initial screening and then a 2 part interview: Behavioral and Case-Based. Both were in the same location on the same day but with two different people. Both interviewers were pleasant and easy to talk to. The Behavioral interview was typical (tell me about your experiences, leadership, handling of work load). The case was not too difficult but the interviewer definitely wanted to see that you were thinking from all angles and kept challenging you to consider alternatives.
