    Healthcare Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Datamonitor (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a 30 min telephone interview with Director and senior consultant. This was a positive experience and felt like a fair interview. After this invited for a presentation and test. Too short notice given for preparing presentation and very little guidance on the content expected. Be prepared for this is the advice. This was followed by a brief interview with director and a couple of other members in team. It was ok and fair questions. Excel test was tricky if you have no business experience but straightforward if you know basic business calculations. No feedback or notification of rejection considering they stated that they would notify. Job re-advertised.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Datamonitor (London, England (UK)) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Telephone interview with HR and telephone interview with Director. Both interviews around 30 minutes. Face to face interview with director at offices reviewing CV and some competency based questions. This is followed by face to face interview with the another Director and a Principal consultant. Following interviews their is a task to complete. This involved preparing a word presentation, PowerPoint presentation and performing calculation using excel in order to answer two case study questions. Process quite straightforward and people were nice. Both interviews and case study were each 1 hour in length. Final interview with 6 employees asking questions more on motivation on joining Datamonitor and reviewing CV. More of a get to know you session to see if you fit in with the team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Datamonitor (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The intereview process started with a telephone interview where I was asked to role play selling a report to a licencing manager of a pharma company. The second interview was a face to face where they simply wanted to get to know my background and ask me relatively relaxed questions to sound out my interest in the job. The third interview was with my future boss and the Sales Director, farely intense questioning, they really wanted to see passion and desire

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Datamonitor (London, England (UK)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I applied for an Industry Analyst position which required a PhD in a disease area. I initially had a telephone interview and was then invitied for the first round. 1st round: interviewed by 2 Senior Analysts who asked the usual questions about my background, my career goals and why I wanted to join Datamonitor. These two Senior Analysts were respectable and made the interview process comfortable. Then gave me some material and was asked to write a 500 word report in 45 minutes which was the final stage of the 1st interview. A week later I was invited back for the 2nd interview. I was sent material about an oncology topic with some questions and asked to prepare a presentation. At the 2nd interview there were approx. 7 people present. 3 senior analysts and 4 junior analysts. Despite giving an excellent powerpoint presentation and having answered all of their questions correctly I was informed by one of the Senior Analysts that the interview process was over and I would hear from them. Next week Datamonitor informed me that I was unsuccessful and gave me feedback which I knew to be false. It was evident that in the 2nd stage of the interview they group decided that they did not like me and were looking for excuses to end the interview process asap. I am glad that I did not get the position as the starting salary was going to be £24000 which is ridiculous for someone with a PhD and experience, furthermore in London!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Datamonitor (London, England (UK)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Finding my CV online was requested to attend an assessment day. Day consisted of a 30 min presentation on the company, a 1hr group discussion on developing a fictional business strategy, 1hr writing a one-page review/opinion piece on two different articles, and finally a 1:1 interview. The interview includes a question like, "How many tyres are there in the UK?". The interview seemed less focused on experience and more on your answers to situational questions.
