Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at IQVIA.

Interview

Interviewers were all quite nice, but timing was not so good. No dedicated staff for recruiting except for the recruiter. Recruiter was quite not responsive throughout the process unless for scheduling related matter. Even travel reimbursement is a lot slower than other consulting firms.

Interview Questions

  • One normal case interview, one written case interview, one fit interview.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at IQVIA.

    Interview

    The process took over 8+ weeks. I was told it was going to be a quick process 2-3 weeks. The people I interviewed with were great but the recruiter that handled the process was not very responsive unless it was related to scheduling. I made it to the final interview but did not hear anything back after 2 weeks. I wished the recruiter did more to keep me in the loop.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at IQVIA (Cambridge, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Short HR interview, 1h interview with a consultant over the phone. Final interview at their Cambridge office consisting of 2 cases and 1 Behavioural interview. It was obvious that the consultants giving the cases had no basic understanding of the process of actually giving a case. No initial framework needed and was met with a vacant stare when I asked for a minute to structure my thoughts.
