    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Queen's University (Kingston, ON (Canada)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    A panel of 4 people, some questions were pretty vague. They asked a lot about my experience at Queen's and my thoughts on how to improve experience for others. The description of the job was not clear, and they didn't really explain well what I would have to do and what the end goal of the project would be. They were pretty friendly, and I got back a detailed response on how I could improve during the interview, so that was very helpful.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Queen's University (Kingston, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    1. Had a telephone interview with the HR representative.
    2. Then had an in person interview with the department manager and supervisor. They asked typical interview questions, nothing fancy.
    3. Then had another in person interview with various team members, which took half a day. We also toured the facilities. This seemed like a formality and that their decision was already made.

    Study Coordinator - NCIC Clinical Trials Group Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Queen's University (Kingston, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online for the position after seeing the posting on the Queen's careers website. Sent in cover letter and CV directly to the hiring manager who was also a Clinical Research Associate. After a month I received an email offering me an interview. The interview was held two weeks later and consisted of a 4 person panel, each person having a list of questions to ask but follow ups to my answers were collective. The interview was a mix of technical questions specific to the position, questions specific to my background gained from my CV, and commonplace work-skills and personality discussions. Nothing was rushed - the interview was approx 75 min - and I could go back and answer something if I wanted to clarify. Definitely an interview to prepare for in terms of knowing exactly what the company is about, technicalities regarding clinical trials, and research but the rest was what one would expect in a management-type interview. Approx. two weeks later (expected time frame given after interview) I received an offer of employment but I declined the position for various reasons.
