    Project Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Premier Research (Research Triangle Park, NC).

    Interview

    Initial phone call was with an HR Specialist, which was very basic (company benefits, job description, etc.). I then had a phone interview with potential Line Manager to cover my experience. Final interview was in person with 4 people (panel style): 2 potential Line Managers and 2 potential co-workers. In person interview was as expected, but some behavioral questions were asked.

    CRA II Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Premier Research (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted my application through Linkedin and received an email a few days later to set up an interview. I interviewed with a kind woman from HR who told me the general aspects of the company and wanted to learn more about me and my experience. I was then given a second interview with a line manager which was one of my favorite interviews I've ever had. She was kind, intelligent, personable, and very easy to talk with. She avoided the typical interview questions and asked me about hypothetical situations, how I would handle them, and then she quizzed me on different processes of overseeing a trial (ie describe the consenting process). I was then given a third interview with another line manager who asked mostly situational questions. He hinted at the end of the interview that I would be receiving good news soon, and within 72 hours, I was extended an offer. I interviewed with 20 other CROs and was given offers by about 5 of them, 2 of which I was serious about, but Premier was, by far, my favorite. The interview process was enjoyable and relaxing and allowed me to speak honestly and confidently. My interview with HR was over the phone while my two interviews with managers was done over skype. I was also asked to complete a quiz which asked general questions about monitoring, there were a few questions I was unsure about but there is a comment section where I was able to explain my thoughts behind my answers. I'd say the quiz ranged from easy to difficult questions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Premier Research (Research Triangle Park, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The phone interview lasted about 20 minutes. The person I talked to was very friendly and supportive of my future goals. It was for a temporary position with the company. I am still waiting to hear back from the company. (It's been four business days.)
    Premier is a great company, so if you get an interview I definitely suggest being prepared, be super friendly and engaged.

    Clinical Research Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Premier Research (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    The interview process was very confusing at first, because I did not understand the entire job description. I interviewed with 3 people at the same time. All in the same group- just different management roles. I did not get the job for that position, but they tried their hardest to find me a job that I would like in the company where I can gain experience. Did not have to interview for the second position- accepted the job.

    IRT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Premier Research (Research Triangle Park, NC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    These people are not all on the same page. HR will tell you one thing, employees doing the interviewing along with the Hiring manager will tell you another.

    Stop hiding the truth at this company. This interview was a joke. They waste time interviewing which is time away from their jobs and then they never call you with an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Premier Research (Research Triangle Park, NC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed with 3 people (2 managers/team leads at one time; 1 employee after the initial interview). The interview took less than 1 hour and I gauged that they were trying to see if my personality fit the group. All interviewers seemed friendly and like they enjoyed working for the company. I can't say the same for other recent interviews that I have recently been on.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Premier Research (Quincy, MA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The HR person sent me a message through LinkedIn and we had email communication but the response was so slow and i had to keep emailing the HR to get updates. The interview went well and the questions were not hard as long as you know the job description but the entire process was slow. I wish things could have move faster.
