    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pharmaceutical Product Development (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    A telephone call with a recruiter firstly, was asked about experience like a resume review. Then a phone call interview with a line manager was scheduled in the second week. The line manager was very nice and asked about some behavior questions, no technical ones. The call lasted about 1 hour. Very positive experience but I did not prepare for it well.

    Interview Questions

    • Give me your cases: describe a PD happened at your site, what did you do? how did you handle tough investigators at your site? If there is a PD, but your investigator cannot tell it from their regular practice, how do you explain it with he/she? if there's a 'red-flagged' investigator, what will you do?   Answer Question
