    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.

    Senior Test Engineer- QA Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore (India)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore (India)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Quintiles in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from HR about the interview. They said that it will be a scheduled walk-in, but it was horrible. I had wasted complete day in this walk-in. Any how , i done good at interview and in 2 technical rounds i am shortlisted. Then HR told me to send the recent company offer letter and pay-slips and you will have a final round from Manager via phone interview. But it was almost more than 2 months that i had not received any updates from HR. When i tried reaching the HR, the update was ' We will let you know once we receive update from management' . This is horrible interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Quintiles in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The whole interview took 1 week. I got a call directly from HR and a technical telephonic round was scheduled. All questions were related to my past experience, agile framework and case studies. After 1 hour, i got a call from hr for next round which was scheduled next day. It was F2F managerial round. I think i cleared that one as well but then again one more manegerial round happened after which i was asked to leave. After 2 hours, they informed me that i have been rejected

    Principal Statistical Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Quintiles in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Spent the better part of a day there, being interviewed by several managers and senior technical staff. Interviews went very well, and they left me with the impression that an offer was imminent. They invited me to contact them if I thought of additional questions, which I did. None of them had the decency to reply to my emails or voice messages. I also received no follow-up from their in-house recruiter.

    Rude, unprofessional, and demeaning. The recruiter just recently had the audacity to contact me for reconsideration. I told her how I felt about my first experience, and that I would neither waste my time interviewing with them again, nor being an asset to a company that treated me with such disrespect.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Quintiles in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had my first interview with a Quintiles rep and it was very down to earth. I had a employee referral from the inside company Quintiles was working with so it was very informal. But once I had my second interview with the pharma company it was very intense and with a panel.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Quintiles.

    Interview Details

    Standard questions, boring repetition like in any other company. Some of the people do not understand what the job is all about and it is shown in the questions. The process is extremely slow and long. There is no room for negotiation with them so be prepared to take whatever amount they offer or leave it.

    Entry-Level Pharmaceutical Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Quintiles in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, contacted by recruiter about 2 weeks later requesting a phone interview. Did not receive call on scheduled date and received an email requesting to reschedule phone interview on a holiday (not a big deal) after taking an online Sales Assessment. Phone interview was basic background/qualifying questions and was then asked to meet the next day for a F2F interview. 4 scenario based questions were asked and were to be answered in the STAR format - lasted about an hour. The next interview with the drug company DM and RM was scheduled a week later. The interview with the DM was essentially the same, 4 questions to be answered in STAR format. They passed me thru to the Regional Manager which was just an informal "get to know you" conversation i.e. "why do you want to do this" and "what would your references say about you?" Asked for my Brag Book. Met with the Quintiles recruiter before leaving and said I should hear back in 1-2 days with answer - turned into 2 weeks.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Quintiles in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. The entire process took about 2 weeks. Phone interview followed by a face to face panel interview in Chicago. During the chicago interview one of the four panelist immediately left the room and never returned! I never heard anything back from anyone- very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was difficult. All of the questions were basic interview questions. I do feel like this interview was given to me because I am a black female and they needed to meet some type of quota around interviewing minorities.   Answer Question
