    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview

    Worked on 2 Quintiles contracts. The first was for an expansion and the DMs were interviewing for teams of 8-10. I met with the DM and a DM for another district for one 2-hour interview. Discussed resume, STAR questions and had to detail and close with product marketing piece. The second contract was much different, with a meeting with Quintiles manager, then 2 with the company's manager, flew to headquarters interview with regional manager as well as a field ride.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on the company website. Two weeks later, I received an email from the company recruiter asking to set up an initial phone interview. We did that later in the afternoon. I received a follow-up email with instructions to watch a graphic video demonstrating how to use the medical device, to be sure I could "stomach" being in that environment. We scheduled a face-to-face interview at a hotel in a nearby city the following week. The interview went well. The recruiter described the position and the expectations, as well as the follow-up process. If selected as one of the final two candidates, they would fly me out to Atlanta to meet with the District Manager. I was told to expect a call the following day, but didn't receive one. I called the recruiter and left a message. The next day, I received an email saying I was not selected to move on with the process.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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

    Interview

    fairly easy just had to meet manager and manager's manager. An informational interview was given and previous experience wasn't necessary but was wanted since the training isn't great there.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
