I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at ICON in November 2012.
Interview Details – Phone screening by human resources. Next was a Skype interview with one clinical managers. Normal CRA questions regarding experience. Manager seemed experienced and interested. Impression was that company fostered an open culture.
Interview Question – What does ALCOA mean? View Answer
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ICON.
Interview Details – People were all very nice, but HR is a bit disorganized. Originally I was offered a different position than I even applied for. HR rep stated this was due to a clerical error. When my offer did come through it was low, even less than I am currently making. I also didn't like the fact that the interview was over a webcam- technical issues were time wasting.
Interview Question – I didn't expect a pop quiz, but there were several questions asking what is in a Regulatory Binder, on a 1572, etc. Not difficult, but unexpected nonetheless. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Salary was low. I would entertain a counter offer.
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at ICON in September 2011.
Interview Details – All three interviewers were kind, professional, and asked reasonable questions pertinent to the position.
I was informed that someone would contact me in a few days. Well, that never happened. I had to contact ICON after 7 business days from the last interview to be advised that they chose another candidate.
That just sucks. Why do CRO's feel so entitled to be disrespectful.
