    In House CRA Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Blue Bell, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (Blue Bell, PA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Had a phone conversation with the talent recruiter about my past experiences. The phone conversation was essentially for screening purposes. The recruiter got back to me in about 1-2 days about potential interview dates.

    The day of the interview I had two different groups interview me. One group was 2 different in-house CRA's and the other group was 2 different FM's (functional manger i believe). They asked pretty basic questions nothing that would really throw you off. I had a really good experience at the interview and was offered a position the following day. Negotiation of salary took about another day or so. I would say the entire process took about a week or two.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (Raleigh, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Screening (phone) with an onsite "talent acquisition specialist" that coordinated on-site interviews. Onsite meeting happened three weeks later with three individuals from the department and the hiring manager. The manager met one on one with me first. Then introduced me to his lead developer. He left and two of the team members joined the lead for two hours. The manager came back in for a final 30 minutes. Then the team and the lead left and the manager met with me of thirty more minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (Lenexa, KS).

    Interview

    Intial application and then phone interview shortly after. Interview set up within a week. Was very fast only a single interview was set up and i learned of the outcome very quickly. Actual interview took longer than expect and ended up being 1.5 hours due to waiting. After the interview one of the employees at pra leaked it to my current employer that i was interviewing there and got me in a lot of trouble.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (Lenexa, KS) in May 2018.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter by phone. Another recruiter contacted me by email about a week later to set up an interview. I gave my availability and then heard nothing until the day before the interview via email. I was interviewed by two employees for about half an hour and then another two employees for a half hour. It was very informal and more like a conversation. Did not ask much about my background. The whole process only lasted a little over an hour.

    Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences.

    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

    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.

    Neutral Experience
    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.
