    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pharmaceutical Product Development (Wilmington, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Got an email from a recruiter about a month after applying. She set up a time to have a phone interview with me. She wasn't very friendly during the interview which made it more difficult, but I guess she liked my answers enough to set up an in-person interview at PPD. There, I met with three different people for one-on-one interviews and they were all welcoming and easy to talk to. It was just hard answering "tell me about a time" questions for two hours straight.
