    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took about 3 weeks. First interview was with the recruiter very basic questions, talks about metrics, closest airport, how much travel, systems used. 2nd interview with a Line manager very long interview but nothing if you have been a CRA for more than 6 months you will do fine. Final interview was on webex for an hour, behavioral questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Quintiles in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had my first interview with a Quintiles rep and it was very down to earth. I had a employee referral from the inside company Quintiles was working with so it was very informal. But once I had my second interview with the pharma company it was very intense and with a panel.

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

    Negotiation Details
    For Negotiation, set your pay about 5% higher than required. I did and the offer came back within my range plus a sign on bonus. Nice! No negotiation on their vacation policy but over all the recruiter was professional and very easy to work with. Their on boarding applications and process was very polished.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Standard questions, boring repetition like in any other company. Some of the people do not understand what the job is all about and it is shown in the questions. The process is extremely slow and long. There is no room for negotiation with them so be prepared to take whatever amount they offer or leave it.
