    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Covance (Madison, WI).

    Interview

    It took about 2 weeks before the remote working women could actually schedule me a phone screening, it was a long back and forth process. The phone interview itself was interesting, she was very kind and helpful, we scheduled a phone interview with the purchasing folks that moment.

    The second interview went okay, but the whole time they sounded and acted like I was wasting their time, just in the tone of their voice. At certain points they seemed offended that I even considered myself qualified for the position.

    I never received any update that they weren't interested in moving forward, ghosted.

    Study Design Lead Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Covance (New York, NY) in December 2019.

    Interview

    Applied, got a phone call from the hr specialist, easy questions, went on to the next round with a hiring manager, that interview went great. The hiring manager had a few behavioral questions, very easy, felt like we connected. Then made it to the final round with 2 other SDL managers, which was all behavioral questions, I totally bombed that interview and never heard back from the hr and even after I emailed her.
    Makes me so mad that they base their decisions on behavioral questions, I am not a quick think or a person who can exaggerate scenarios or use other peoples examples and turn them in to mine.
