CRA Interview

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Covance (Richmond, VA) in January 2017.

Interview

I applied one day, got an email for a phone interview two days later - which was pretty prompt for response time. The phone interview was a few days later with the recruiter. I did find something to be a little odd. I got an automated email that I wasn't chosen for interview for the same position shortly before being contacted by the recruiter - glitch in the system perhaps?? I was told the phone interview would last 30 minutes, it ended up being closer to 40 minutes. The questions were very detailed based on my resume and very intensive for a preliminary phone screen. I did appreciate that my recruiter helped "coach" me through a few questions to boost my chances of being contacted. He let me know that they were currently on hold for reviewing the initial interviews but that I would hear something by the end of the month on whether I would be moving forward to the next interview. Still waiting to hear something overall, which is why I'm putting no offer for now. Will update once I hear something.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Covance.

    Interview

    Very easy process- I learned about the position through university recruiting and submitted an application a few days later. After about a week, I had a quick (20 minute) phone screening and then the week after that I had an hour long phone interview with the hiring managers. Three weeks later, I got a call offering me the position. The phone screening was primarily informational and the interview was entirely behavioral.

    Phone screen was first, followed by a webex/webcam face-to-face interview with two line managers. Many "gotcha" questions and minimal questions related to the actual job of monitoring. The face-to-face was 90 minutes of taking question after question from 2 line managers.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Covance in June 2014.

    Interview

    Got two telephone interviews by the company. The first was maybe 10 min and easy, mainly to filter out if I make it to the second telephone interview. The second was about 25 min and a little more in depth, about my former experience and a lot of what if questions.
    I have to say, I do not like Telefon interviews and I guess I did not do good on that one either because I did not get an offer, but I would expect that the company at least write you an email to tell you yay or nay but they never got back with me.
