    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Covance.

    Interview

    Went through two phone interviews and an in-person interview. First phone interview was just basic questions about the job, the second was more in depth and was mostly questions about working with difficult people and working with people from other countries. Then there was an in-person interview with 3 people, which was all just generic behavioural interview questions. The in-person interview was cancelled and rescheduled at short notice. I was called frequently up until the in-person interview but have not been contacted since.
