    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PAREXEL (Durham, NC) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Consisted of showing up with my resume after a friend of a friend put in a good word for me with the company. I was lucky not only because of that, but because they were starting up something cutting edge to recruit new CRAs, which the industry was in desperate need of at the time, which was a training program. I showed up resume in hand, answered a few questions about my education and why I thought i would be successful at the job. Next thing I knew I got an email that I was accepted and told when to show up for training, this included a contract to work for a year and a penalty of having to pay back the year's salary of $50k if I didn't complete the year work.
