    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Covance (Princeton, NJ).

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR, phone interview with manager, interviewed in-person with with manager, co-worker and member from another group. Two of the three went well, the interview with the person who would be on my team did not. He was douche-y and acted like he knew more than I think he does. I did not get the feel that it was a phenomenal place to work. Just started merging IT, who knows how that will go.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Covance (Princeton, NJ) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and pretty much the next day I got an email to schedule a phone interview. The phone interviewer was very good and very clarkie to the point but the recruiter after that was pretty bad. She kept getting my time zone wrong and kept forgetting to send me an email to confirm the time and place for the in person interview. The two ladies I interviewed this were really nice and extremely informative. They really gave the full picture of what an average day and an average week in this position would be like. The both asked the typical star questions. The name a time when you failed in a group or name a time that you went above and beyond to help a client. Questions like that. They also followed up very quickly. I got an offer a week after I went in for the in person interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covance (Princeton, NJ) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Bizarre experience. I was not well qualified for this position from the beginning. Got contacted by HR the day after I applied. Had a phone screening with HR where she read off behavioral questions and typed my answers in. There was no room for questions from me and no information about the job was offered. I was quite honest regarding what I knew and did not know. I really thought it went quite badly and was surprised to get a phone interview with the hiring manager. This was a great interview but throughout it I kept expecting him to say "you really don't have the experience/qualifications for this job". Was shocked to be asked in for a F2F interview. I'm wondering if I was the only person who applied for the job. I turned down the interview because I really don't think I can do the job and it seems like that wasn't an issue for them.
