    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Hilarious if not so unhinged from the start. Clueless depts within the org. They have money so basically it is another place where no one does any productive work but try to show they are very busy. Oh and they will advertise their job postings as "those with interest in Ted Talks are valued" however the person interviewing you is eons away from any innovation or ted talks.

    Interview Questions

    • They were basically so unorganized that it was really a complete waste of time.   1 Answer

    Very pleasant, manager was kind and the job description was true. It was a phone interview first, then 2 face to face interviews. The interviews went well but they didn't offer me the position because someone else had more experience than i did.

    Senior Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Telephone interview with recruiter first, then telephone interview with a few spoke on the team. That was all normal and respectful. Third interview was the weirdest interview I've ever gone on in my life. I walked into a room, there's a few people and they tell me we're going to do a role playing exercise. They gave very little information, and then stared at me while I was talking. Then they started acting crazy.
    I'm not sure why I was being interviewed like an acting role would (auditioning for a role) when I'm applying for an extremely analytical position. The whole experience was pretty awful even though the team seemed great. It would be reasonable if it were a sales position.
    I wouldn't have accepted if offered because it was so odd and disrespectful.
    After the interview , crickets despite my followup email. Then just a robo rejection. I'd expect more consideration after getting that far through the process.
    It's really a bummer, because Quintiles seems like a great company, I just wish my interview reflected that.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Plymouth Meeting, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Manager had to catch a plane back to California so it was rushed. Had me play a little skit with one of her employees giving you minimal information. She acted like she wasn't paying attention though. When you asked questions they made it seem like you should know. They tell you that the source is like a flat file but when you start explaining the situation they say "The files are not flat files", when you ask what they are they say you wouldn't understand. JOKE!!!!

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    Initially, it seemed the interview process was going to be intimidating. It became very relaxed after we got started. I've been on tough pharma interviews (almost insulting) and this was rather pleasant.
