    IT Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Research Triangle Park, NC) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Applied on line and phone interview by the HR person. I was not sure based on what I have communicated, Quintiles would be interested on a follow up. However, to my surprise, I was called in for a F2F interview.

    Lasted 3 hours - 1st 30 minutes with hiring manager, followed by an hour with a panel of managers (3) who are peers to the hiring manager, followed by an hour with a panel of direct reports (3) to the hiring manager and a final 30 minutes with the hiring manager again.

    Mostly PM skills based questions and general interview questions.

    1. Tell me a time you had a conflict with someone at work and how did you handle it?
    2. Experience working with offshore outsourced teams
    3. Strengths and weakness.
    4. What are you bringing to the table that will complement the skills of the team
    5. What challenges you will face doing this job
    6. What do you think the easy part of this job
    7. Why are you leaving the current job

    Unfortunately I was not really prepared when I went for the interview and do not believe I impressed the panels. I was told I would hear back in couple of weeks since they have few more candidates to vet.

    So have not heard from them but not counting on this.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you think the easy part of this job? This was asked by the hiring manager at the end. I wish I had asked this question to the folks who interviewed me before so that I could have framed my answer better.   Answer Question

    Business Development Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Research Triangle Park, NC
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at QuintilesIMS (Research Triangle Park, NC).

    Interview

    I passed through 3 rounds of interview: 1. Another Business Development Specialist 2. My Supervisor 3. Director of Commercial Strategy. Interview was really relaxed and composed of mostly behavioral questions. They tested my industry knowledge with some general industry questions as well. I started network with the employees about 2 months before I submitted my resume. One of the interviewers was also the person who I networked with. Interview process was very simple. I got all the 3 rounds in a day, then they called me in 2 days to give me the offer. My experience was really great in their RTP headquarters. However the region is very small and if you like living in a big city, it may be hard for you to survive in RTP.
