    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Pace Analytical.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was somewhat stringent. Once your resume has been received, their recruiter will contact you and go through an interview process with you. If you pass with flying colors, you are scheduled a second interview with your leading manager. Once the manager approves, you must take a drug test before you can start on site. Once you are on site, you meet with your supervisors and team mates.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Pace Analytical in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very limited, simple phone interview with Pace and then a phone interview with the lab ops client. The interview with the client was more of a formality at that point, to let the client get a feel for my personality and my willingness to do certain types of work and manage projects on my own.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked a question about my previous experience with getting my hands dirty (in reference to specific job functions asked of by the client)   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    R&D Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Pace Analytical in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Before the interview they were very quick to get back to me. After the interview I never heard back from them. Its a small company and lacks basic business skills. Its absolutely lazy and rude to not write a short sentence or even an automated email telling the interviewee they were not selected. I will never apply to any position in this company. I would rather work for a company that respects and values people..

    Interview Details

    It was a multistage process because Pace does handle outsourced work to companies in the minneapolis area. You first interview with someone in HR and then someone that acts as liaison to the host company. Overall the process is very slow spanning several months.
