    Trainee Medical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at McCann Health Medical Communications (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    One hour writing test followed by 1.5hr interview by head of editorial and one member of HR. Informative discussion, slightly overshadowed by their interest in my family life. Furthermore, during negotiations they were unwilling to offer me flexible working (2 days starting at 8.30am and leaving at 5.00pm as opposed to starting at 9.00am leaving at 5.3pm) therefore I declined the job offer. Amusingly, they suggested if my circumstances changed I should get back in touch. As a mother of 4 young children my circumstances are (hopefully) not going to change in the very near future. Very disappointed in their attitude, in particular the (lack of) professionalism of HR. They say they have a work life balance standard and advocate flexibility in their job adverts, but in my experience this is just not the case.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McCann Health Medical Communications in February 2018.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview and a writing test (which I had to complete from home) first. Afterwards I had a face-to-face interview - first a writing test (editing + short writing) and a standard interview. One interviewer was really good, asking straight to the point questions. The other was a bit passive-aggressive but again - really straight to the point.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to describe a challenging situation in my previous work and what I did to overcome it. I was also asked if I were to hire someone, what qualities I'd be looking for.   1 Answer
