Entry Level ACE CRA Interview

Entry Level ACE CRA
Minneapolis, MN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Quintiles in May 2014.

Interview Details – A recruiter called me after they saw my resume online and told me I would be a great fit for the position. She completely led me on and told me they have barely anyone qualified for the position and that I was sure to get hired. She told me all of the dates of the future interviews and dates I would need to be available for corporate training.

Interview Question – I had an interview with two CRA managers. Their questions were all very easy. They asked about simply items such as what are the required elements of an informed consent, what do you look for when monitoring a site, and what does a 1572 stand for.   Answer Question

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative
North Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Quintiles in April 2014.

Interview Details – I had two interviews with Quintiles to be part of a contracted sales team for a pharmaceutical company. The interview with Quintiles went great. Then I met with the pharmaceutical company's hiring managers. The first interview with them went well but the second interview with the territory manager did not. I felt Quintiles could have prepared me for what the interviews would be like. It was all behavioral questions and I was led to believe that I should prepare a presentation which they didn't even ask for.

Interview Question – Lots of behavioral questions   Answer Question

Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

Clinical Research Coordinator
Toledo, OH

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Quintiles in May 2010.

Interview Details – Telephone interview initially lasted about 25 minutes. HR Rep was very personable and our call was laid back although still professional. Second interview was with the regional manager who ultimately ended up becoming my boss. She drove from Indiana and we met at Starbucks. It was interesting having coffee and meeting as we did. It was nice to break the ice by talking about my town and the route she took to get here. was struck my the personal and candid nature of the interview after having researched the company and realized that they had 40,000+ employees. All in all a good experience!

Interview Question – If you don't get this job what will you do?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wish I would have negotiated. I didn't because I was so afraid of them saying no. Always tell them what you think your worth. If they want you they will pay you!

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

Pharmaceutical Sales Representative
Omaha, NE

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Quintiles in August 2010.

Interview Details – Normal face to face with DM. Same old questions and answers. Since there are still so many pharmaceutical reps still out of work from the massive layoffs over the last decade, be prepared for fighting it out with many many other reps. As always, it's who you know.....not always who you are unfortunately.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation
