I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Quintiles in September 2011.
Interview Details – Was very laid back and conversational. Focused on behavioral interviewing (aka situational interviewing). Not a lot of pressure at all.
Interview Question – Describe what brought you here. View Answer
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Quintiles.
Interview Details – Was contacted a few days after submitting my resume to schedule a phone interview. Scheduler sent an email listing the four people I'd be meeting with their job titles and emails. I called in at the scheduled time, 10 minutes later one person joined and stated that the other 3 people could not join. Interviewer asked me to describe my journey thus far and I worked through my resume. Interviewer did not seem to want to be on the phone interviewing someone, asked very few questions, interview was mostly me talking about myself and asking her questions regarding the role. A month later I hadn't heard anything so I contacted the interviewer and scheduler and received a no thank you email shortly after. I did not walk away from the phone conversation with a positive impression so this was not a surprise!
