    Clinical Monitoring Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed to set up a phone interview a couple of days later. It was relatively quick and easy, mostly personal questions about what kind of career I was looking for and salary expectations, before setting up a video conference interview for a few weeks later. I also had been emailed some forms to complete, as well as an activity that involved prioritizing tasks, which I emailed back and never heard anything about. I interviewed by video with two different employees, one in recruiting and one more involved with clinical trials. I thought the questions were rather straightforward and they encouraged taking time before answering them. I asked if I would hear back soon and they both said they would let me know either way.

    I never heard back from the company much to my surprise, since they both strongly hinted I was a shoe-in for the job. I was disappointed, and really only annoyed that no one ever contacted me about it.

    Clinical Enrolment Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process was very smooth and promising. I completed 3 interviews and had a verbal agreement that I would move to the next steps. The next thing I knew, I received an e-mail saying I did not qualify for the position. Very disappointing to lift someone up so much and take so much of their personal time just to drop them and by e-mail no less.

    Was contacted pretty quickly after applying. Standard screening by recruiter. They explained the process. They were very adamant how they don't leave people hanging in the process.
