    It moved quickly and they were accommodating to my schedule. The hardest part was to give a presentation because I didn't have much time to prepare. They were open and understanding that my interview was just scheduled the day before.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kansas City, MO
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency – interviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    I came in for a panel interview and never heard a word about the job. The HR rep had told me after the interview that they were hiring for temp positions through the same temp agency I was currently working for. After I didn't hear for a couple of weeks about my interview results, I called her and asked for a temp position. When I showed up for my first day as a temp, I realized it was in the same department I had interviewed in. They recognized me from my interview and offered me the position on my second day as a temp.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    It was different than normal because I was working there as a temp. The hiring manager sat me down in her office and made the offer. I accepted right away. I was happy with the salary so did not negotiate.
