    Clinical Research Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Medpace in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Medpace is one of a few U.S. CROs that are currently hiring inexperienced CRAs, thus it is a good company for gaining invaluable experience within the CRA field. I was contacted by a recruiter within 48 hours of applying online. Within three business days I was asked to participate in a 'virtual interview' with a hiring manager one week out. Standard interview questions. Three days later I was asked to commute from Columbus for an in-person interview another week out. (No reimbursement for travel expenses.) This was conducted by an HR professional and two different hiring managers, and lasted about two hours. I expected to receive an offer. One week later I received an automated rejection email. The HR department declined to respond to my inquiry regarding why I was not given an offer. I have seven+ years FT professional experience in biomedical research and public speaking post-undergrad, whereas most of their CRA I hires are straight out of undergrad. Oh well...

    Interview Questions
    • I interviewed with 5 people: most questions were redundant amongst them.
      What is the role of the CRA? (also need to answer this via written assessment during the final interview)
      Strengths/weaknesses?
      Provide an example of a time you had to troubleshoot a procedure.
      How do you deal with outliers when examining data sets?
      Are you comfortable speaking publicly to medical professionals?
      Greatest accomplishment?
      Conflict resolution with coworkers?
      Where do you see yourself in X years?
      Do you anticipate going back to school for a Ph.D. or M.D.? Why/why not?
      and others...

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Medpace in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round phone interview with HR last about 30 minutes. Invited for an in-person interview within a week. Scheduling was for a couple of weeks from the invitation. Met with 6 different people ranging from HR to upper management. It was a very long day, as I flew in and out of Cincinnati on the actual interview day and no lunch was provided. I also didn't get to see much of the building or meet people on the team outside of those with whom I interviewed.

    Clinical Research Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Communications by email until phone interview. They went over basic questions and through why I wanted the CRA position. Described the position quite a bit and then told me they would contact me later. They emailed to schedule an in person interview at their campus, which is quite a fantastic place. It was a three person interview, they came in one by one and talked about the position and went through my resume. Also wrote a paragraph about a prompt, it was to check whether I can communicate effectively.

    Senior Intern/Clinical Research Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Medpace in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I originally submitted my resume through their website and was contacted within 48 hours to set up a phone interview. Two days later I spoke with HR and the conversation lasted about 50 minutes and was focused on the job description, the company, and my personal accomplishments and I ended it by asking about eight questions. I was told that they would be in touch within a week or so if they would like a in person interview and within five days we scheduled the interview for two weeks later. The interview was at their amazing office and was about three hours and I met with two CRA managers back to back and two HR reps at the same time. They reviewed my experience, accomplishments, research history and goals, and future goals in the career. I was also asked to complete a written assessment to review my writing style and language. I originally interviewed for the Senior Intern position; however, I was offered a CRA I position instead.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Medpace in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview with 2 HR reps. It went will, they asked about why I wanted to work at Medpace and my background. I asked them about 7 questions. They answered all and that kept the interview from being like 10 mins. Then they emailed me to schedule a face to face about 2 weeks out. The face to face was 3 interviews in 1. HR rep, Project Coordinator, then Manager. All 3 went great. Very nice ladies and I made them all laugh. Was offered the job the following day.

    Clinical Research Associate I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Medpace.

    Interview Details

    I met with two managers of the training department and was specifically hired for my specialty background so I was able to demand a much hire salary than the average. I think people typically meet with three managers but again I was probably fast-tracked based on my oncology nursing background.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing stuck out as particularly difficult for me but the written essay test to check your writing skills (punctuation, grammar, sentence structure) may be difficult for some.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I told them I would not leave my current job for less than $65,000 and I was surprised they gave it to me so easily. Yet later I realized I was making much less and hour than the nursing job I came from because I was only calculating it based on a 40 hour work week.

    Interview Details

    Overall the hiring process was long and and exhausted. There were alot of behavioral and situational questions, which was fine, but in my opinion....four remote interviews is a bit much with extended gaps with replies.
