    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Parexel (United States) in Sep 2021


    Applied online. Received an email for a phone screen a few days later. I was asked basic monitoring questions to assess skill level/position. Then a video interview a week later with senior management and asked more situational/STAR questions. Then received an offer a few days later and accepted!

    Standard background screen but surprisingly no drug test.
