Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Pharmaceutical Product Development (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

Interview

I had a call from a recruiter after contacting me via linked in. This recruiter was amazing. Guided me through the entire process coached me and gave me all the support I needed throughout. After the phone screen I had a phone interview that lasted about 45 minutes with a manager. She was very nice and professional. She recommended me for a face to face interview with two clinical senior managers. The phone interview questions were expected, STAR format (tell me a time when you didn't agree with a colleague...)
The company payed the tickets, hotel, food, car. The interview was the most relaxed and friendly interview I ever had in my life. I was expecting a bombarding with questions and all kind of weird acronym type..on the contrary it was a very relaxed "conversation" where they asked me about my professional routines, how did I resolve issues, how reliable I was, how flexible, team player, etc throughout case scenarios from my job. It was a two hours interview, first with one manager and then the other one. Extremely professional, humble, approachable. Hats down to PPD interview process; the best one I ever had in my life.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Pharmaceutical Product Development in January 2011.

    Interview

    First was a Phone interview with human resource, then phone interview with 2-3 managers, then a face to face interview with a Regional manager at a local restaurant. This was a very informal conversation and discussion about company and job more than it was "interview questions". Hiring process was simple after that.

    Interview Questions
