    Senior Financial Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL in September 2016.

    Interview

    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. Then didn't have any follow up. Was disappointed but not surprised to see it happened after all the reassurances to the contrary.

    Project Manager Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied and three weeks later had a preliminary interview. The interview went well and I was told I would be contacted for a second interview. I chose the day and time from the list they provided. On that day, no one contacted me. I reached out via email and phone regarding the second interview. Two days later I heard back and they apologized and rescheduled me. Five minutes before my rescheduled interview, they cancelled. It took two days to set up another time. That interview finally happened with two employees and went well. I never heard back from anyone despite emails and phone calls requesting follow up. Overall it seems very dis-organized and that they have communication issues.
