    Average Interview


    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Parexel (New York, NY).


    All interviews were held over the phone and was ver professional. The interviewers were extremely friendly and it was clear they knew what they were looking for. I had a total of 2 interviews and 1 test. The only negative was that I had to wait quite long for feedback on my interviews.
