    Clinical Trials Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at xbiotech usa (Austin, TX) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Got contacted by Austin Staffing Company. Rep was as unprofessional as one can expect from a staffing agency--office itself was dirty, decrepit, and downright depressing in a sketchy part of town. The rep did not have a clear understanding of the skills and responsibilities involved with the position or the field in general. The rep submitted a salary figure to the company that was not discussed with me first. Then he himself got fired the next day and I was contacted by another replacement. Met with 4 different people at XBio--none of the questions were related to performance or personality. It was very odd. Only recently has it hired a dedicated HR rep--needs a lot of improvement.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at xbiotech usa (Austin, TX) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I applied to about 5 positions over several months before being contacted by the company. I was not told anything more than to show up at a certain time, and was confused what was happening the entire time. Four people sat down and talked with me, but none of them seemed like they were interviewing me. It was more of a light conversation about work. When I was hired, nobody notified me that I was actually expected to begin work the next Monday until I called as a follow-up. Small offer package, but acceptable.

    Negotiation

    I did request a small salary increase to match my previous work's pay. I was told that the stock options (the company is not publicly traded) were compensation enough.
