Call Center Program Supervisor IPAS Group Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Somerset, NJ

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at inVentiv Health in August 2013.

Interview Details – The process began in early Aug. 2013 and it continued until late Sept. 2013, I had to go through 4 different interviews and 1 phone call interview with the VP. Thought I hit the nail on all 4 interviews, until my interview with the VP went downhill by one question that took me off guard, they then decided they are not going to pursue any further bringing me in for the supervisor role. This position was not a rocket science position and with my credentials and years of experience, an offer should had came through however this company does not hire people with experience, degrees and knowledge but people who can be a yes man. At the end it turned out to be for the best.

Interview Question – From 1-10 how do you rate yourself on tough love?   View Answer

Very Difficult Interview

Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Somerset, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at inVentiv Health in July 2011.

Interview Details – inVentiv's excellent in-house recruiting team contacted me directly and placed me in contact with my initial phone interview, which went very well. After that, there were two rounds of interviews spread over two months, wherein I was brought on site and walked from office to office interviewing with members of the inVentiv staff from every department and level, including the executive admin. After a dozen interviews an offer was not extended due to the input of not my would be management or peers, but that of the admin. A month later the admin had departed, and there was at that time a consensus that I would be a good fit for the position and an offer was extended

Interview Question – "Tell me about a disagreement with a prior manager you had, and how it was resolved."   View Answer

Negotiation Details – The negotiation phase was painless and professional

Very Easy Interview

Call Center Interview

Anonymous Employee
Somerset, NJ

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at inVentiv Health in January 2012.

Interview Details – It was very quick, the questions were very basic, not like many companies that use the situation, action, response. It is a very quick turn-around. Applied on Thursday, got a call on Friday, interview on Monday and accepted the offer that evening, started the next day. The people seem to be very nice but don't be fooled. Keep your guard up. The grass is not always greener on the other side and it is basically brown in the call center here. Very little growth opportunity and management already has their favorites in place.

Interview Question – Please tell me about yourself and why are you looking for employment?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate but their starting salary is much lower than the industry. If you need a job definitely take it but don't become complacent and don't give up looking, there is definitely something better out there.
