    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at IQVIA (Spokane, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    30 minute phone interview, 90 minute in person interview, 90 minute video conference interview before offer. I was in a rare spot that they needed to fill a position within two weeks so my process went very quickly- all of these were in a week. A friend that works their said her process was over 3 weeks. No matter what, make sure to ASK for the job at the end of each interview. Be prepared to sell yourself and do a sample sales presentation.
