    Average Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Two step interview process with written/excel test

    I had a very good first interview, but then didn't hear back for a long time. The second time I came in was supposed to be a second interview...but for a different position. The second interview was awkward and I didn't really want the second position, also didn't know many details about the second role before the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked the usual questions...what I do in my current role, what my understanding of the new role is, how I would deal with time pressure and so on. They did not ask very technical questions, but asked how I would evaluate some date.   1 Answer

    First round face-to-face interview with senior consultants, followed up by phone HR interview, concluded with face-to-face interview with directors and presentation to the rest of the team.

    The first-stage interview was called a 'networking event' where we where put into groups of 4-5 and moved around 5 tables. Each table had two interviewers who asked general competency based questions (eg. why do you want to work here? give an example of working in team. etc) The questions were asked to us one by one in our groups and we sat at each table for about 15 minutes.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (London, England (UK)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process is a complete joke. Was interviewed twice for an internship. The first round included a professional group who knew what they were talking about and provided a good overview of the placement. The second round included a bunch of teenagers asking some stupid and mean questions. This group showed no sense of maturity or professionalism.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were answered professionally but the group showed no enthusiasm.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Really mean people. Stay away from them!
