    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Quintiles (Birmingham, England (UK)).

    Interview

    I did a brief phone interview, then a writing test, then a presentation and web conference interview, then a video conference interview. Everyone was very pleasant, polite, and thoughtful. They were detailed and forthcoming in response to the questions I asked about the company and the position, and gave a very positive impression of what it would be like to work with their team. Due to the fact that the teams are located in multiple cities, all interviews were conducted by phone or web conference. Waiting to hear about an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed 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.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Quintiles (Reading, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and the process took 4+ weeks. Got an email from HR for a phone interview with the hiring Manager, call lasted 30 mins then she set up an interview with the VP for a face to face which lasted an 1h but it was very relaxed and the VP was genuinely warm and informative. Then had 3 rounds of video conferences with the rest of the team which I was apprehensive about at first but really made a difference to the entire process. Everyone in the team took part in the hiring process which gave me confidence that I would enjoy working with these group of people. Got a call with an offer on the evening before my last telephone interview.
