    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Couple of phone interviews with different recruiters, then you are asked to fill out lengthy online forms and provide a LOT of detailed information, references and authorizations. Then couple of video interviews with PRA managers who will only ask you lots and lots of technical questions and literally GRILL you to no end. They do not care about anythings else like soft skills, cultural fit etc. You will not have a chance to ask questions at all. Upon asking about PRA client for which you will be working for, you will receive an answer, "I cannot disclose." Terrible! You can sense that they do not like you and will ghost you. ADVICE: DON'T BOTHER APPLYING AT PRA, DON'T WASTE YOUR VALUABLE TIME!!

    Interview Questions

    • lots of specific technical and theoritical questions.. You have to memorize all regulations because they will ask you anything like this was some sort of "exam".   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences in August 2020.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and received a callback from a recruiter quickly. I was set up with Senior Recruiter, Katrina, who was extremely helpful and informative throughout the entire process. I was scheduled for two different conference calls to speak with current employees who had questions for me about how my past experience would be beneficial in the open position, and they were able to answer all of my questions as well as describe in depth what my role would look like. It was a “semi-lenghty” process, but I understand they are looking for the appropriate fit for the company.
    Every person I talked with not only had been with PRA for 8+ years, but they also had nothing but positive things to say about PRA, which made accepting my offer that much easier.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences.

    Interview

    I was referred because any other way doesn't get my application any attention.

    I still haven't heard back. I have no idea what is up with PRA. I asked another colleague in the same field and she even says PRA gives you the run around. Glad to know it's not just me.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I had 2 interviews with HR which went pretty smooth. The 3rd interview was with the PRA manager, it did not went well. That person expected me to know all the job clearly at the job interview. I feel like they only want someone with a great foundation background detailed to their job descriptions. They do not want someone who they have to train a lot.

    Project Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (Raleigh, NC) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I spent over 10 hours speaking with numerous people in positions that I would be interacting with. This culminated with a 40 minute slide presentation on topics that in no way could be covered in that amount of time. I got a lot of run around from HR and wasted a lot of time. Which all of this would have been fine but after the last interview, NO ONE contacted me in any regard. I sent several emails and phone follow ups but no one had the respect to even provide me an answer of yes or no. Very unprofessional
