    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Covance.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Covance in February 2019.

    Interview

    I did a phone interview that went really well and was asked what my minimum salary requirement would be. The range on the position was surprisingly low considering how much experience they wanted. The position was for a registered nurse with an OCN and research certification. The position did not pay enough for a nurse with experience.

    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.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covance (Austell, GA).

    Interview

    The telephone screening process for an entry level position was like a Skpe interview for an experienced level position- detailed and intense.

    It looks like they have the same set of questions for most levels
