Associate Project Manager Interview

Associate Project Manager
Princeton, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Covance in July 2012.

Interview Details – I had applied online, was contacted by Covance recruiter after a couple of days to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview lasted for 30 min and the recruiter asked general previous experience questions. He reviewed my CV with me and asked me about my views on Animal research. After 3 days of interview I received an email of Face to face onsite interview invitation. They arranged my entire trip to New Jersey. I had a 4 hour interview with three different managers including a presentation. Everybody was very friendly and made me at ease before starting the interview. They all had a pre formulated behavioral interview questionnaire.

Difficult Interview

Associate Project Manager Interview

Associate Project Manager

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Covance in February 2012.

Interview Details – I had a wonderful interview with HR. I was then phone interviewed by one of the managers within the group, which also went well. I finally had an in person interview, which consisted of multiple interviews, followed by a presentation I had to provide. The interview portion was the situational type questions, some were repetative, as they did not speak with each other ahead of time to determine who was going to ask what. They had to find folks to sit in my presentation, as they were not prepared enough to have anyone scheduled.
I was extremely disappointed to not get an offer for a position I was fully qualified for. To travel across country and have to spend so much time to put together a presentation was aggravating. It seems from someone I know there, they drive employees into the ground, so I am thankfull!
