Interview

The interview process took a while from beginning to end, but that is anywhere. I didn't get the job for the first set of interviews but called back for another territory. Quintiles took care of all of the expenses for the interview. I ended up taking another job but overall great company and process!

    Interview

    The most unprofessional interview process I've been part of. Started out well with a screening. I was asked to pick a time slot for an interview. Never got confirmation. Waited the day of for the interview and no one ever called. Emailed them to see what happened. They didn't even apologize just said they were sick and can I reschedule later in the day. I gave them a time for later in the day and never heard anything back, no call. The following day they apologize and ask to reschedule. So unprofessional, did not decide to continue on with process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was extremely thorough, but worth it! You first have to pass a phone screening, then another phone screening. Then you interview face to face with the recruiter. The recruiter chooses 2 people out of the 6 or so who are interviewed to move on to final interviews. You will then interview with the District Manager of the company you will be working for. If you pass that portion, you will move on to speak to the Director.
