    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.

    IT Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Research Triangle Park, NC (US)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Quintiles in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied on line and phone interview by the HR person. I was not sure based on what I have communicated, Quintiles would be interested on a follow up. However, to my surprise, I was called in for a F2F interview.

    Lasted 3 hours - 1st 30 minutes with hiring manager, followed by an hour with a panel of managers (3) who are peers to the hiring manager, followed by an hour with a panel of direct reports (3) to the hiring manager and a final 30 minutes with the hiring manager again.

    Mostly PM skills based questions and general interview questions.

    1. Tell me a time you had a conflict with someone at work and how did you handle it?
    2. Experience working with offshore outsourced teams
    3. Strengths and weakness.
    4. What are you bringing to the table that will complement the skills of the team
    5. What challenges you will face doing this job
    6. What do you think the easy part of this job
    7. Why are you leaving the current job

    Unfortunately I was not really prepared when I went for the interview and do not believe I impressed the panels. I was told I would hear back in couple of weeks since they have few more candidates to vet.

    So have not heard from them but not counting on this.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you think the easy part of this job? This was asked by the hiring manager at the end. I wish I had asked this question to the folks who interviewed me before so that I could have framed my answer better.   Answer Question

    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

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.
