    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Quintiles (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Very detailed and situation oriented. Things have changed now. The interview is based off of an exam you take. The thing that sucks is that you can interview well and not pass this entrance/screening exam. I heard it sucks but I didn't take it so I can't offer much advise here. The actual interview and presentation is pretty nice though.

    Interview Questions

    • It is an exam now. I'm not sure what they ask these days.   Answer Question
