Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at Quintiles.

Interview Details

Was a very quick process. Contacted a little less than 2 weeks after application.
Initial interview on the phone, followed by a basic online assessment
Got emailed like a week and half later for round 2 interview
Round 2 interview in person - basic behavioral questions, laid back, nothing out of the ordinary
Got called 1.5 weeks later for final round interview
Final interview with DSM, pretty much same questions, behavioral.

It was an average interview process, and good interview practice. The other candidate had much more sales experience than my fresh out of college self.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Quintiles in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had my first interview with a Quintiles rep and it was very down to earth. I had a employee referral from the inside company Quintiles was working with so it was very informal. But once I had my second interview with the pharma company it was very intense and with a panel.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Quintiles in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews with Quintiles to be part of a contracted sales team for a pharmaceutical company. The interview with Quintiles went great. Then I met with the pharmaceutical company's hiring managers. The first interview with them went well but the second interview with the territory manager did not. I felt Quintiles could have prepared me for what the interviews would be like. It was all behavioral questions and I was led to believe that I should prepare a presentation which they didn't even ask for.
