    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I got a call from the recruiter through LinkedIn and I had a call with him for 45 minute where he asked initial screening questions. Then I had two 45 minute phone calls with two members of their Big Data Engineering team. Then I was invited to fly on-site for an interview loop. I had four 45 minute interviews with them.

    I was later rejected as they said they needed someone with more experience.

    Interview

    Phone interview

    I was interviewed by the direct superior senior sales manager. He started the interview with typical question : tell me about yourself. I was introducing my work experience but he cut me off and wanted me to tell him who I really am as a person. He wanted to know if I'm married, if I have kids, what does my husband do etc. I found it very unprofessional. And when I asked what was the difference between inside sales specialist and solution sales specialist, he told me that they have funny names for the positions and it didn't matter.

    The JD I got was very different from the responsibilities that I was told by the interviewer. Very disappointing that a big company would have such unprofessional senior manager.
