    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.

    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.

    Senior Medical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pasadena, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL (Pasadena, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Contacted by an internal recruiter about 6 months after applying to a different position. We played phone tag for 2 weeks then had 2 screens. I was moved up to HR for that position and had a very nice phone conversation about my qualifications and the position and company benefits- this was a great experience. HR sent my summary for review by the hiring manager and if she liked it HR would set up a phone interview with her - it is a remote work position- so a lot of phone interviews! I scheduled the interview with the hiring manager about a week later and to my surprise after having such a positive experience- she was cold and uninterested. She seemed very distracted. We obviously didn't click, so no offer - fine with me.
