    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Covance.


    Uses STAR method. Mostly behavioral questions. The interview was excessively long (9am-3pm), which involved meeting just about every member in the department/lab. Consisted of both 1:1 and group interviews, which weren't overly formal.
