Clinical Research Associate Interview

Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences.

Interview

After a screening call, a conversation with the manager over the phone and a face to face interview, I never heard back either way after 4 weeks. I did my part and some feedback or a simple "the position has been filled" or "we're still checking references" would've been nice. But no, not even after me contacting them requesting follow up. I was even told who to contact if I wanted feedback and got no response. If they can't be bothered to communicate that, imagine what it'd be like to work for them. Looking at the reviews, it looks like I dodged a bullet.

I was also given a test which I suppose was a preview about what the job is - it got me to thinking that I'd rather not be filling that role anyways.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (West Jordan, UT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was quick and easy. There were two people interviewing me. They were very quick to call to request an interview but they never followed up afterwards to at least say I didn't get the job. After the question portion, they walk you around the clinic which is nice so you can get a taste of the kind of atmosphere you would be working in.

    Interview

    2 HR screening phone calls followed by 2 60 minute Web Ex interviews. All four women were fantastic and very informative. I applied late for the opening so the team was making decisions by the following week so there was not much waiting time for a response.

    Interview Questions

    • All STAR questions, be prepared to be thrown for a bit of a loop. As everyone before me has stated: it's a lot of behavioral questions. I wasn't asked any of the traditional interview questions that I normally normally prep for.   Answer Question
