    QA Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Covance.

    Interview

    Phone screen was very basic, just asking general questions from your online application. Then if they ask you to do an in person interview, they do not offer to get you a flight if you are out of town or reimburse you for your mileage - if you even *ask* if there is a possibility, HR just cancels your interview altogether and doesn't tell you unless you call to confirm your question, and you have to beg them to put you back on the calendar. The actually interviewers are nice enough, but clearly HR is a mess and to expect someone to shell out $1k for just a chance at a job is ridiculous. Then you wait 6-8 weeks, and every time you ask for an update they tell you "we will know by the end of the week," and never call. Finally when you do call for the 6th time, they say "oh yeah sorry we filled that position last week with someone else"

    I applied online. I interviewed at Covance in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had two interviews before being rejected. The first interview was a phone interview where mostly typical HR questions were asked by an HR representative. The second interview was a phone interview conducted by two people who did clinical statistics work. This was a more typical job interview and I was only quizzed on a few technical concepts.
