    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in March 2013.

    I initially interviewed for a lab position, but was offered this position. So I ended up interviewing 3 different days. I am local and was a student at the time so it wasn't a big deal, but I can see this being a challenge for other candidates.

    They would not negotiate on salary or vacation days (a mere 2 weeks). It was a take it or leave it offer.

    Started with a phone interview, which was very helpful for a potential employee to learn more about the job before investing time and money to interview. Then I was flown to Chicago for a face to face interview with Quintiles, and then forwarded on to a second interview the same day with another Quintiles representative and a member of the pharma company I would be doing work for. Very organized process.

    Senior Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Initial process included phone interviews and flown in for face to face interviews. A few interviews were with one individual and one was a panel interview. Overall interview was positive and fairly easy. The individuals I interviewed with were not the people I ended up working with.

    Interview Questions
    • What distinguishes you from other candidates? Why should we choose you for the job?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They offered the salary I asked for. Clinical operations is given 3 weeks of vacation (although I traveled so much I rarely used my vacation). The hiring manager I interviewed with was great and when I attended New Hire Orientation I found out I would be reporting to someone else who started after me. My experience with the company would have been much better had I continued to report to the manager I initially interviewed with. I found out later that my co-workers received a higher sign-on bonus than I did so always asking for more doesn't hurt.
