    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Durham, NC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Durham, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted online application
    Contacted by a recruiter the next day to schedule a phone interview
    Phone interview lasted about 20 minutes, and the same night got contacted by the hiring manager for a face to face interview
    Face to face interview was very loosely structured, as if they already had someone in mind that they wanted to hire, but had to do more than one interview to avoid labor law issues. It lasted a little over an hour, between the hiring manager and the HR representative
    After the interview, the hiring manager told me that she would let me know of the results in two days, but I did not hear from her after a week. I contacted her and she said that they hired someone internal.

    Nurse Educator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    Applied online. Initial contact was made by phone by direct line manager. About 30 min phone interview with typical questions, ie review of job history, strengths and weaknesses etc, and opportunity to ask questions about the job. Then offered to be flown to Phoenix for a second in-person interview. I was given a set interview time and information to make flight arrangements through a travel agency. The interview took place at a hotel with many other applicants. We were given a conference room to wait in and then called one by one. It was a 3 person interview panel, 2 quintiles nurse managers, and 1 representative from the contacted drug manufacturer. They really emphasized that they wanted "stories" in response to their questions and set up a role play scenario where we sat back to back and acted out a phone call to a patient. Then proceeded to a second interview immediately after with the line manager who had conducted the original phone interview. I was contacted by phone within 1 week with a job offer.

    Phone interview (case study), Excel test, on-site interview

    The phone interview was pretty straightforward with personality questions & a simple market sizing question. The excel test coveted skills gained via a very basic excel course; however, the time limit made it difficult.
