    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was referred in 4 months ago. Applied on in November. Got an email setting up a phone interview three weeks later. Face to face interview four days later, and a final interview three days later. Got an offer next day. Moved really quickly, very straightforward communication.

    They gave me a chance to prove myself, and answered any questions I had in-depth.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Quintiles in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was average but I did not get the titles of everyone I met with and also during the interview process. I submitted my resume online many months prior to getting a random email to interview so I thought the company actually was not interested but I am that it all worked to my benefit.

    Started out with an extensive phone interview by HR covering the basics, then invited in for an all day interview where I met 5 people. The individuals that I met were the hiring manager, and 4 different folks from the business that I would be covering. All the interviewers asked questions about my background and wanted to know how much I knew about the company and why I would be effective in this role.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    The second round interviews were not too bad, but were long (45 minutes each). The cases were not math heavy and focused more on awareness of drug marketing and sales. The presentation component in the final round was odd and no seemed to actually care about it. They had to ask employees to watch the presentation and no one was very engaged. Minimal questions were asked.

    Interview Questions
    • As a public health student, they asked me directly "do you have a problem helping pharmaceutical companies make money?"   Answer Question

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Brief phone screen followed by a face-to-face where I was asked to prepare a 20 min presentation. Unprofessional at interview, arrogant and condescending. Complete waste of my time, I traveled and spent night in a hotel. I would not want to work for an elitist group like this. Very narrow vision of who fits their profile for success and unwilling to adequately train.
