    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at IQVIA (Golden, CO) in May 2019.

    Interview

    Received a request to complete a lengthy “personality test” just one day after subtitling for the position. I completed the “test” within 24 hours, and literally never heard back from anyone (good or bad) ever! The test was certainly a time investment, and it would have been more professional for Iqvia to provide insight to the results of the assessment and their decision to not move forward with the next phase of recruitment.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    The interview process took a while from beginning to end, but that is anywhere. I didn't get the job for the first set of interviews but called back for another territory. Quintiles took care of all of the expenses for the interview. I ended up taking another job but overall great company and process!

    I applied online. I interviewed at IQVIA.

    Interview

    The most unprofessional interview process I've been part of. Started out well with a screening. I was asked to pick a time slot for an interview. Never got confirmation. Waited the day of for the interview and no one ever called. Emailed them to see what happened. They didn't even apologize just said they were sick and can I reschedule later in the day. I gave them a time for later in the day and never heard anything back, no call. The following day they apologize and ask to reschedule. So unprofessional, did not decide to continue on with process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at IQVIA in October 2015.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by a recruiting company and after I expressed interest in the position was contacted by the DM for a phone interview. The interview went well and I was asked to complete an application as well as a phone assessment conducted by DDI. I've been in Pharma for several years and have been on plenty of interviews but have never been asked to do a phone assessment. I found it a bit surprising especially considering its contract. A few days after I completed the phone assessment the DM contacted me again for a FTF. During the FTF the DM was there as well as a DM for the Pharma company. I'm pretty comfortable with the 5 Star approach but felt some of the questions were out of left field and unrealistic. They also contradicted themselves a lot which led me to believe they really didn't know what they were looking for and/or they were each looking for different things and they didn't mesh well together. I closed the interview and asked when I would hear something. The DM (Quintiles) said if I didn't hear anything by Monday he moved on. Well, I didn't hear anything and I moved on as well.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of situational questions. Never once asked me about my knowledge of the drug or competitors or the company itself.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IQVIA (Memphis, TN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    There was multiple interviews which included a mix of reveling for face to face and Skype interviews. Initial interview was about an hour and a half and included very few star format questions. It was laid back and mostly informative for both parties. should you progress the interviews do increase in level of difficulty.
