    Neutral Experience
    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.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Cambridge, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had applied through my school and the first round of interviews happened there. Then the second and thrived rounds were at the Cambridge. The first round consisted of 2 case interview, the second round was 2 case interviews plus 1 behavioral interview. The third round seemed somewhat pointless because it was just 1 more case interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. He called and did a phone screening with me for about 30 minutes. Then I did a video interview, which was quite simple. I then did another 30 minute phone interview. Unfortunately, I did not move forward in the process, which I believe might be another phone interview or an on-site interview. The process was super quick. The time it took from the phone screen to the phone interview was 1 week.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS.

    Interview

    Short and to the point. All the right individuals were involved in my interview process and ensured to give me as much detail as possible regarding the role. The panel style interview was especially helpful for both sides to explore the potential fit quickly and effectively.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions revolved mostly around me providing tangible examples from my prior experience that were relevant for the job I was interviewing for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was offered the job very quickly but they were obviously frustrated by me negotiating a fair compensation package in line with my prior experience, even though the difference was rather small. In the end they accepted my request, offered me the job which I accepted but they subsequently rescinded the offer. In my many years in business I had never encountered a company with such stunningly unprofessional conduct.

    Research Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (New York, NY) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Easy, fairly informal and laid back.

    Initially called by a recruiter to set up a phone interview with the PI. This interview came one week after speaking with the recruiter, and took about 30 minutes. After the first interview I was then scheduled for another phone interview with another team member. The second interview came a week after the first. The recruiter called me a few days later to tell me I was not offered the position. So this process took about two weeks, which leads me to believe that if an offer was made and I took it - the entire hiring process would have been about a month long.
