    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Worldwide Clinical Trials (The Colony, TX).

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter at the beginning of January to discuss the business and position. She said she would get back with me the next week but it actually took 2 weeks to get a meeting with the hiring manager set up. Another recruiter sent me a background check through docusign to fill out as soon as possible. On January 23rd I had an interview with the hiring manager for about an hour. I thought the conversation went very well. I sent handwritten thank you notes to all the recruiters and hiring manager. I called the 2 recruiters and also emailed all 3 contacts at the company I had. I understand that people get busy but to just leave a candidate hanging is wrong. Even with patience and nice emails that were written I never heard anything one way or the other back from any of them.

    Interview

    Very smooth and professional. The recruiter at Worldwide Clinical Trials had a good grasp on marketing requirements and was able to engage in a productive discussion about my background and fit.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Worldwide Clinical Trials (Raleigh, NC) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Found position on a job board, can't remember which one. I had this long phone interview about 4-5 days after applying. Made it to an in-person interview. That was set up to meet 2 ppl. Possibly the person getting support. Went onsite, they were completely unorganized. The first person admitted she didn't even read my resume. Anyways, spoke to her about 30 minutes then met with the Global VP of HR. Difficult questions didn't see how they correlated to the position. At the end of meeting with the VP HR she said she "would try to get Mr. X to see if he's available." She came back about 5 mins. Later and said he's stuck in a phone call and didn't know how long he would be. So, instead of making me just wait around, we'll see if we can reschedule. ~2 weeks later..no word nothing. I followed up after with the thank you emails, and sent one to original contact. No response.

    Proposals Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Worldwide Clinical Trials (Austin, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Submitted a CV online & was contacted within a few days. The initial phone screen lasted 30 minutes. Went in for face to face interview a few days later; a relatively straightforward and enjoyable (me, the recruiter, hiring manager, team member) experience. I had a high opinion of the company at this point.

    This company did not discuss the salary for this role during the phone screen or interview process. A few days after the interview, they offered me the position. At this time they named a figure that was a few thousand below average for this role and location. I did state that the salary seemed a little low asked if it was negotiable. The recruiter said that was a reasonable question and that she'd check for me. She did not say "yes" it was negotiable, or "no," it wasn't. In the meantime, we established one day for me to accept that offer, with a start date the following week. The recruiter later sent me the benefits package, which I reviewed and approved.

    After some phone tag that same day and a couple of calls with the recruiter (saying that she was still checking on the salary question), I was the recipient of a voice mail from her late that day. Essentially the voice mail stated that due to my concerns about salary negotiation, they "got scared" and offered the position to someone else and it was subsequently accepted.

    This turn of events changed my opinion of this company from a very positive experience to a very negative one. Not discussing the salary earlier on was certainly a red flag, but then to rescind the offer (within the time frame for acceptance) because a candidate inquired about salary negotiability is not good business practice under any circumstances. This almost unbelievable experience told me that this company does not value its employees, and therefore is a company that I would not want to work for.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Worldwide Clinical Trials.

    Interview

    Standard questions are asked, but they are also looking for specific experiences that they will ask you to elaborate on, if it's listed in your resume. I was quickly put at ease after a couple of humorous moments during the interview and it it became a much more friendly experience.
