Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences.

Interview

The speed of the hiring process was excellent. I filed my application online and had no contacts in the company, received a call from the recruiter a couple days later, had a phone interview the following week, went in for the interview day about a week later, and was hired 3 weeks after that. Compared to other companies, this was very fast. The interview was tough and thorough, but understably they want to find the right people. I had to interview with 4 people for 30 minutes each and then give a presentation on a topic they gave me. I had time to prepare in advance for the presentation as the recruiter had given me the topic ahead of time. I had slides prepared and went through the presentation. After the presentation, they had some very difficult questions planned to see, I think, how interviewees react under pressure in situations like a bid defense. That was the most stressful part of the whole interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PRA Health Sciences (Philadelphia, PA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with the recruiter and then a longer phone interview with a director and senior director. They really liked me and asked me to fly in to Philly for a face to face interview. However, when I arrived for the f2f, they immediately seemed to have already decided that I shouldn't have the job I came to interview for, and were adamant in suggesting that I apply for a different, lower level position. They weren't even sure if they were hiring for that role! I never got a chance to interview for the role they flew me in about.
    Needless to say it was a disappointment, since the decision was made before I got there.
    I believe this was very unprofessional behavior. The face to face interview took 12 hours of my time, including travel, and I had to take a day off of work (not paid!) . These people had zero regard for me, or my time.
    I attempted to follow up on the other job they kept steering me towards, and could not get a response.

    Interview

    Professional interview. Went as expected. One of the interviewers talked a lot so I don't feel I got to talk much about my experiences. Took longer than expected. Scheduled for an hour but took two. Panel interview with directors and departmental heads.
