    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Durham, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months - interviewed at Quintiles in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Takes a long time to get through the interview process in NC. Best way to connect is to know someone who can refer you for a position or share your information directly with hiring managers. Managers and agencies appear to manage recruiting/hiring process instead of Human Resources.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected part of the interview proces was the number of people you need to meet with and the number of times you need to connect.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Ask for the high end salary for role. Once you are hired, increases are only recognizable if you add multiple year increments.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in White Plains, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Quintiles in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    A classmate from grad school submitted my cv to the 2 main HR reps in the NY office. They asked me to fill out a form stating my accomplishments, previous jobs, etc. Basically it was Quintiles' candidate form that HR was going to present to internal leadership to determine what role I should come in and interview at. Then I had a phone call, which was schedule 3 months later. Not even joking - 3 MONTHS later.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not asked any difficult questions - I don't think most of the team was prepared to interview me (read - had never seen my resume or did not know about my candidacy or anything). I did have to create a presentation before coming that I gave to a group of 8 people (topic related to health).   Answer Question
