    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Billerica, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PAREXEL (Billerica, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Decent phone interview with who appears to be a 'green' recruiter. Asked a lot of questions but didn't allow time for me to ask questions. Was told that I was overqualified for the applied role and talked up the other position that I was being considered for. After I agreed to move ahead with the other position, I followed-up twice to find out next steps and the recruiter went silent. Not very professional.

    CMA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Relatively easy interview but was not overall impressed with company and people in it. Very clear its about making money and not really investing time into helping people. No career path unless devoted to 75% travel. First interviewer yawned a number of times and watched the clock to run out. Not a great feeling.

    Service Delivery Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PAREXEL (Lowell, MA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screening by HR person. Call was received at the precise scheduled time. Interviewer worked out of a different state than where the position will be held. I was unable to get many of my questions answered regarding the position due to the interviewer lack of knowledge about it. Reading the reviews on Glassdoor has me very skeptical about this position.

    Interview Questions

    • All question were given to the interviewer by the hiring manager. The interviewer was admittedly new to recruiting this position.
      Why is Service Level Management Important?
      What are the main activities of a Service Delivery Manager responsible for Service Level Management
      What are good metrics for measuring availability of a service?
      Names some of the main steps as part of the incident management process.
      As part of the problem management process describe a “problem”, a “root cause of an incident” and also a “problem workaround”
      Interviewer also asked me about willingness to worked extra hours which by reading reviews on Glassdoor I learned is a problem with current and passed employees.
