    Director Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Plymouth Meeting, PA).

    Interview

    First step was a phone interview with a recruiter. After that, they invited me to participate in an in-person interview with the hiring manager and 2 additional directors. I met with each person individually for about 45 minutes each.

    During the in-person interviews, the questions were fairly straight-forward - questions about previous experience and things listed on my resume.

    The department is undergoing changes, so a lot of questions were also around change management.

    Talent Acquisition Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Plymouth Meeting, PA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had one phone interview and one onsite interview. The onsite was with 4 people including 3 TA Supervisors and the Director of TA, each met with me individually. They shared a lot of information about the company's structure. Questions were very standard. Most of the staff is young, it was a low-pressure interview. The role was entry-level temp-to-perm and did not pay my desired comp, they extended an offer to someone cheaper. Seems like a positive work environment with a lot of growth potential and flexibility.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    Interview was a 2-person panel webex (extremely intense), although it depends on your interviewers. Majority of questions seemed to be anatomy focused (What part of the body is that found? What is that responsible for?)

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    They just never get back to you. Not even with a rejection email. After all the trouble of going through video interview + rounds of phone interviews + flying overnight across the country and back in a day, you hear nothing if they don't hire you. I mean, how rude.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    I had a first round interview through my school which was two 30 minute case interviews with some behavioral questions at the end. I was invited to their Cambridge office for a second round interview after a successful first round, which consisted of two 45 minute case interviews with behavioral questions at the end as well as an intensive 30 minute behavioral interview. One case interview did have stress test components just as a heads up, but all of the employees I met at the office were friendly. Speed is a bigger factor in the second round than the first.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    no communication, no emails, no phone calls from their HR, TA. For Director & Senior positions hope at the least they would go through each resumes to see the potential of each candidate. Org may need to monitor closely their review process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Applied online, then got an email 2-4 days with a questionnaire to fill out. After that it's an video interview with both behavioral and case questions.
    After the video interview I spoke with the director of the Academy, then another senior consultant. 1st interview was basic resume questions and a simple case question.
    2nd interview was technical round.
    About two days after the second phone interview I was brought in for onsite interview.
    The onsite interview started with a lunch, followed by 3-1 on 1-behavioral round , 1 analytic round, 1 excel test and 1 power point presentation round. The whole process took about 5 hours.

    Its been 3 weeks now and haven't heard back.
