    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.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter for cursory interview prior to speaking with Quintiles panel. Interview was hour long WebEx with 15min presentation + Q&A and rest consisting of typical interview questions and job specific questions that weren't bad. I was contacted by the recruiter two hours after the interview and was offered the position. While I accepted, the only down side is being considered contractor with recruiting staffing company with potential for full time offer with Quintiles.

    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.

    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.
