    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter and an interview was set up soon after. Communication was very cordial and professional, as well as were the interviewers. The work environment seemed very welcoming and open for questions--also very team-based. Overall it was a great interview experience.

    Principal Bio Statistician Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Not the most transparent hiring process. I was inteviewed by an Associate Director who was working from home, but was also babysitting his daughter, he had to excuse himself more than twice to discipline his daughter and when he came back he could not remember where we had left off, and started a new question, he did it over and over again, not a single technical question later. I was told that they had moved on with another candidate. I felt violated and smeared. The guy was not listening to anything I was saying. I have more years of experience than required

    Senior Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Very general phone screen through a 3rrd party recruiter initially and then webex with a functional manager. Felt more like a conversation, know your resume, why you left each job. What your goals are, what you expect at Quintiles, know your EDC systems and which therapeutic areas you prefer to work in if hired.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the oridnary was asked. Everything was expected and the interview overall was pretty easy. I have had more difficult interviews.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Even though I was a offered a senior CRA position from current CRA 2 level at another CRO, the salary was matched instead of an increase which was odd. I would think a senior position would require more work and the incentive to leave the current CRO wasn't there. They have 3 levels of Senior CRAs so wasn't sure how it would even help to fast track moving up the ladder.
