    Principal Bio Statistician Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Not the most transparent hiring process. I was inteviewed by an Associate Director who was working from home, but was also babysitting his daughter, he had to excuse himself more than twice to discipline his daughter and when he came back he could not remember where we had left off, and started a new question, he did it over and over again, not a single technical question later. I was told that they had moved on with another candidate. I felt violated and smeared. The guy was not listening to anything I was saying. I have more years of experience than required

    Medical Device Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on the company website. Two weeks later, I received an email from the company recruiter asking to set up an initial phone interview. We did that later in the afternoon. I received a follow-up email with instructions to watch a graphic video demonstrating how to use the medical device, to be sure I could "stomach" being in that environment. We scheduled a face-to-face interview at a hotel in a nearby city the following week. The interview went well. The recruiter described the position and the expectations, as well as the follow-up process. If selected as one of the final two candidates, they would fly me out to Atlanta to meet with the District Manager. I was told to expect a call the following day, but didn't receive one. I called the recruiter and left a message. The next day, I received an email saying I was not selected to move on with the process.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    The second round interviews were not too bad, but were long (45 minutes each). The cases were not math heavy and focused more on awareness of drug marketing and sales. The presentation component in the final round was odd and no seemed to actually care about it. They had to ask employees to watch the presentation and no one was very engaged. Minimal questions were asked.

    Interview Questions
    • As a public health student, they asked me directly "do you have a problem helping pharmaceutical companies make money?"   Answer Question

    Clinical Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Referred by employee and was contacted a few days later to interview with an Associate Director. That interview went very well, mostly just conversational in style, and I felt decent about my chances moving forward. A few days later I received an email stating that I would have a WebEx interview with another Associate Director, Director, and Senior Director and to prepare a short presentation. That went okay (I thought), though the interview ended kind of weirdly and abruptly. In retrospect, I'm sure they had already made their decision not to hire me based on my lack of experience at a CRO and very little (< 6 mos.) at a pharmaceutical company. After several attempts to reach out to the recruiter for any information regarding a decision, I received an auto-email stating that I had not been accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • None of them were particularly difficult. There were a few behavioral questions, but really it was either just conversation or how my experiences would be relevant to the position.   Answer Question

    Clinical Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Brief phone screen followed by a face-to-face where I was asked to prepare a 20 min presentation. Unprofessional at interview, arrogant and condescending. Complete waste of my time, I traveled and spent night in a hotel. I would not want to work for an elitist group like this. Very narrow vision of who fits their profile for success and unwilling to adequately train.

    Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Was a very quick process. Contacted a little less than 2 weeks after application.
    Initial interview on the phone, followed by a basic online assessment
    Got emailed like a week and half later for round 2 interview
    Round 2 interview in person - basic behavioral questions, laid back, nothing out of the ordinary
    Got called 1.5 weeks later for final round interview
    Final interview with DSM, pretty much same questions, behavioral.

    It was an average interview process, and good interview practice. The other candidate had much more sales experience than my fresh out of college self.
