    Scientific Specialist Uxbridge(London) Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at PAREXEL (Uxbridge, England (UK)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online, got an email and phone call a few minutes later asking for a telephone interview. I had this interview a few days later which went very well. I got moved to the next stage which was the writing test, I sent my test back 6 days later, called to confirm that they had received. The recruiter promised to get back to me shortly. After a week and no contact I called her and promise to call me the next day. two days after that I still didn't hear from them, so I call again and no answer, call a few more time and it was not answered. I decided to hide my number and immediately it was answered, she promised to call me back the next day and guess what she never did. I called a week later, she picked up the phone as I introduced myself, she hung up and would not pick it again when I rang back immediately.
    This is the most disgusting recruitment process I have been through, it was an absolute joke, Whoever wants to work for this company, God help you and for those who are working for them, I feel really sorry for you.

    Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL (Uxbridge, England (UK)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through Parexel's system and was quickly contacted by their Talent Acquisition group for a phone screen. Initial communications went well and was told they would be back in contact shortly. Approximately 2 weeks later I was called by another HR person to set up an in-person interview.

    The in-person interview went well I thought. Those who interviewed me where nice and professional; they thoroughly answered all the questions I brought with me as well.

    It has been 2 weeks since the interview took place and no one from the company has contacted me to tell me I either didn't or did get the position. I contacted the HR person I worked with requesting next steps regardless of the outcome following the interview and never heard anything back. This is unfortunate because the company seems to have a lot of exciting things happening and a talented group individuals within the dept I interviewed with.. However, if their dedicated team of HR Talent Acquisition professionals cannot even get back to potential hires regarding next steps, that leaves a negative first impression about what working for the company is like.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview questions were what I'd expect ranging from technical to behavioral. Example questions:

      Tell us about your previous experience.
      Why did you apply for this job and what interests you about it?
      What has been your most challenging project?
      How do you handle working with a fellow employee you don't like?   Answer Question
