    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview

    Initial screening interview with HR staff followed by 1 hour long phone interview with two line managers. Questions were as expected for the role. Overall a positive experience but 'lack of experience' as a reason for not being offered the role, when this is abundantly clear from my CV, did make me feel like my time was being wasted.

    Interview

    One telephone screen, one interview in person, then a three round interview. Very friendly people overall. The case was somewhat difficult, not too bad if you are prepared. Recruiter worked fast and had meetings set up.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in March 2015.

    Interview

    There was an initial screening and then a 2 part interview: Behavioral and Case-Based. Both were in the same location on the same day but with two different people. Both interviewers were pleasant and easy to talk to. The Behavioral interview was typical (tell me about your experiences, leadership, handling of work load). The case was not too difficult but the interviewer definitely wanted to see that you were thinking from all angles and kept challenging you to consider alternatives.

    Horrible experience!!..was more like a cattle call with overly self important callers. They left me waiting downstairs for over an hour. No one knew what was going on. Another applicant in my group waited for almost 2hours, no one had her name, and the receptionis just left her there. She ended up walking out
