    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS in March 2017.

    Interview

    Got in touch through an internal recruiter who circulated resume and then set up initial phone screens. They did multiple phone interviews before deciding to bring in for in person interview. They focused heavily on interest in business area to gauge how long would stay. It sounded like there was an attrition issue and they were looking for sr. Consultants who would stick around longer. No signing bonus was offered which was very uncompetitive vs other offers.

    Interview Questions

    • Lots of focus on fit, travel preference, and interest in CI. They are looking to plug long-term roles.   Answer Question

    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.
