    Easy Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Covance.

    Interview

    They called me on a timely basis and asked some basic STAR questions. They didn't answer any tough open ended questions. Pretty courtesy people as well. As long as you prepare to talk about healthcare and your passion and answer the questions in a basic manner, I think you can get past the first screening very easily.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle confrontation at work ? Explain how you would defuse a situation?   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Covance (Raleigh, NC (US)) in August 2020.

    Interview

    Interview had three parts: first they went through my resume, asking me to elaborate on any details or skills that I want to highlight. Then we went through a behavioral questions packet where they specifically asked me to answer in the STAR format, and finally open ended questions to end the interview.
