    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PAREXEL (London, England (UK)) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Lengthy. A whole half a day meeting with 6 people; would-be peers and managers. Got a goof feel for the company and role - too much maybe. Was exhausting, is difficult to keep interview A-game for five hours!

    met delivery team and sales team. Delivery team openly complained about the sales team and vice versa. Sales 'colleagues' spent time explaining how they would take all the good accounts.

    Trial Manager/Study Manager/Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PAREXEL (London, England (UK)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process is quite simple, you get a phone call and first the telephonic interview, face to face interview (depending on the position and location of the position), once it was video conference and then as usual call with HR to see how it went. HR also calls you 3-4 times after the interview and say that the interviewers are interested in your profile and keeps gauging your interest for taking on that opportunity. After a long wait of 2-3 months, every time, I received a rejection saying they have received a candidate whose skills and experience matches more closely than mine.

    Interview Questions

    • General Clinical Study Management operational questions. I felt like a teenager is being asked about identify a color or identify a shape. Interviewer asked behavioural questions as well, which are common in industry.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PAREXEL (London, England (UK)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Three interviews: 1st stage with HR on the phone, 2nd phone interview with Senior consultant, 3rd and last interview in the offices, 1h with SVP and VP followed by 15 min presentation about why them and why they should hire me followed by Q&A. Then 90 min to write a mini review on limited information about what they wanted, using 9 scientific journals provided by them. At the end a 30 min chat with 2 Junior Analysts. Very exhausting process I must say.

    Senior Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PAREXEL (London, England (UK)) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The interview was a face-to-face interview with an Associate Director, a Line Manager and the HR Manager. It was a friendly atmosphere. The interview began initially with questions about my past roles etc followed by a series of competency/behavioural type questions. There must have been at least 20 such questions. You have to support each question with an example of an incident or situation which had taken place and how you dealt with it or what you learnt from it. It was quite challenging having to relate a different scenario for each question but the interviewers were very encouraging and helpful; they prompted me to use a previous scenario for some of the questions when I drew a blank at some questions. At the end of the interview which lasted a good 2 hours, I had to complete a test on a laptop. The test consisted of questions relating to pharmaceutical drug research, systems and processes as well as your writing skills.

    Interview Questions
