    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at ICON.

    Interview

    Process was simple, streamlined, and turnaround was surprisingly quick. I had contacted a recruiter who had previously reached out to me via email. Icon and general qualifications were discussed during phone screen with the recruiter. As this was in relation to a home-based position, within a week of the screening call a 3-panel session was scheduled with senior management to remotely conduct a presentation/interview. Received panel decision within few days following interview. Very pleased with the recruiter, interview panel, and overall process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ICON.

    Interview

    Started with an HR interview which led to a video interview with Directors from the Project Management group. The video system was slightly awkward making an already stressful situation compounded. Late arrival and churlish attitude left me unimpressed and disengaged from the meeting and potential position.

    Interview Questions

    • General background information was inquired about, why I was considering a career move, etc. Then, went into questions around risk management experience and examples. Additional questions revolved around vendor and budget management.   Answer Question

    Phone interview one on one with talents acquisition, then phone interview with senior management, finally a panel interview with 3 Senior Directors of Clinical Trial Management.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ICON (Raleigh, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted first by email after applying online. The contact scheduled a phone interview with me, and the interview lasted about 30 minutes. The contact asked me questions, and took notes on my answers. I was told at the end of the phone conversation that the contact would forward their notes to the hiring manager, and if the hiring manager wanted to, the hiring manager would contact me either for an in-person interview or a video conference interview. It has been almost one week since the phone interview, and I have not been contacted for a follow-up.
