    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services (Houston, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Initial interest and consideration is done all via email communication. From the moment the HR recruiter considered my resume and application, I not once heard from her personally over the phone. The initial process feels really disconnected making you feel if Novum is even actually interested in you or are they just passing the time and randomly interviewing people for the fun of it. Ultimately they make you feel like you wasted your time.

    Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services.

    Interview

    I submitted my application, and then had to fill out some screening questionnaires. They got in touch with me to schedule a phone interview, during which they asked most of the basic questions -- what are my strengths, weaknesses, why do I want to work there, etc. It seemed like a pre-made questionnaire that they asked all interviewees. They will contact you about a month after the phone interview to schedule you for the next round, a group in-person interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services (Las Vegas, NV) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Depending on what department you apply for, you will meet with different people. When I applied they told me it was for a full time position and a higher pay then what I was making at my current job at the time. I got served the paperwork from HR and it was for same pay and not guaranteed full time hours and they told em to start asap but prior to that they told me to go ahead and quit my current job. I got jerked around a lot , 6 months of being part time before being full time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services (Las Vegas, NV) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and first had a phone interview with HR from the corporate office. Then had an in-person interview with the Quality Assurance Manager, who uses a book of interview questions (so they are the standard questions you would expect). The process took a short time for me, but some have reported the background check taking very long.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services in November 2011.

    Interview

    One interview with 3 managers. The interview process was straight forward. Standard questions, no discussion about salary. The interview panel wanted to know my availability and if I was okay to work weekends and 12 hour shifts as needed. The main focus was on availability and not if I could perform the job

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    The company is really disorganized. The recruiter began to review my resume and asked me some really boring questions, like what did you do. He also came with like I'm just curious what schools were teaching now. It's really waste of my time to go to their site.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Novum Pharmaceutical Research Services (Pittsburgh, PA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Initially had a phone interview, then asked to come in for a "group" session which consisted of some tests then interviewing with one of the senior managers,V.P., and a team leader. Received a response about a week and a half after the group session.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No room for negotiation, since they tell you up front when pre-screening you over the phone. However there are opportunities to receive salary increases as you progress through the academy training and go from an intern to an official CRA, etc.
