Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer

Interview

This company was very through with the interview. Process. It started with a phone interview and then a face to face interview. The recruiter was very friendly and accommodating with scheduling both of these interviews. Overall I rank this company highly so far and hope to be able to the Quintiles team.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Boston, MA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    My boss did the screening and first interview and then he forwarded me to host company's GM and RM. it was a long process but pretty quick once I interviewed with all parties. The questions were standard pharma ones and they seems easier than a direct hire since we were brought on for a year just to support a product launch

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (North Chicago, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I had two interviews with Quintiles to be part of a contracted sales team for a pharmaceutical company. The interview with Quintiles went great. Then I met with the pharmaceutical company's hiring managers. The first interview with them went well but the second interview with the territory manager did not. I felt Quintiles could have prepared me for what the interviews would be like. It was all behavioral questions and I was led to believe that I should prepare a presentation which they didn't even ask for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had my first interview with a Quintiles rep and it was very down to earth. I had a employee referral from the inside company Quintiles was working with so it was very informal. But once I had my second interview with the pharma company it was very intense and with a panel.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Dallas, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted by Quintiles recruiter for contract position. The first interview was a phone screening, mainly covering your resume. I was flown to the second interview where I was able to meet with the recruiter. I was invited for the final interview to meet with the company DM and RM. A little more pressure, but basically the same questions that I was asked at the 2nd interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I knew going into the interviews that the questions would be phrased "Tell me about a time" So make sure you prepare for those.

      Question: Tell me about a time you were able to overcome a challenging obstacle you faced.
