    Clinical Research Professional Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Philips Healthcare (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    I submitted my application and got a call from HR the very next day. She was very nice on the phone, and started describing the position in detail, including all of the responsibilities and even the benefits the company offered. She then asked a little about myself and my current position. She mistakenly thought I worked in heart monitor research, but I am in oncology. I think that's the main reason she contacted me, as I got an "Oh" in response, and the job is for sleeping and pulmonary devices. Although, she remained enthusiastic and said she would submit my information to the hiring manager and should expect someone to get in contact with me within a couple days. A week and half went by, so I reached out and asked if she would get back to me regardless of whether they were still interested or not, and she replied with, "Yes, I get back to candidates either way." Well, I never heard anything back, and that was about a month ago. It's fine that they do not want to go further in the interviewing process, but do not lie to candidates and say you'll get back to them either way and do not. It only keeps you waiting in anticipation, and it's a huge letdown when so much time passes without anything.

I was called later that day to arrange travel for a face to face interview with management in Austin, Texas. I traveled to Texas for the interview, which I thought went well, but I never heard from them again.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Philips Healthcare (Cleveland, OH) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a third-party recruiting company. They forwarded my resume and a short explanation of my work history to the Philips HR Specialist/Hiring Manager. A phone interview was set up for later that week with HR. HR specialist described the position, explained company culture, answered any questions I had. An onsite interview was then set up for a week later with the Hiring Manager. Nothing overly technical, general questions and personality fit type of interview. Two days later I received a call that they wanted to make an offer, no negotiation was necessary. Overall the process was great. Everyone communicated efficiently, and for such a large company I was impressed with how personal they were able to make the process.
