    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at ICON.

    Interview

    I phone interviewed a couple weeks ago and haven’t yet heard back even after emailing a couple days after the interview. Overall the situation was pretty disorganized. My interviewer forgot about my interview and it wasn’t until hours afterwards that she got back to me. I thought I did okay but maybe wasn’t specific enough with my answers. Or it could really be that the phone interviewer is that disorganized and has forgotten to get back to me, I have no no clue.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at ICON in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter who asked me a few basic questions about my background and why I'm looking for new employment. Next I had to answer several interview questions online through their web based system then submit the video. It consisted of about 15 questions. I had never done that before so it was a different experience. About a week later I was contacted to interview with 2 CRA Managers via webcam. One was pleasant and the other was hard to read. I thought I did ok but when I asked questions about the travel requirements it may have come across as I had issues with the travel which is 8-10 days onsite. After the interview I sent thank you emails and that was that. I never heard back even after sending an inquiring follow-up which was about 3 weeks. I got the hint and went elsewhere.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ICON (Long Island City, NY (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview of about an hour with general questions. Then, called in of in person interview. I was interviewed by a junior and senior level team leaders. They asked the standard questions. It seemed to go well. Then the big shots came in and asked a lot of questions. They really keep digging into every detail of your resume. However, they asked some ethical questions which were difficult.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at ICON.

    Interview

    The Human Resource phone interviewer was rude as all get out. She stated that they would only pay me a certain amount and if I wasn't willing to take it the interview was pointless. I agreed to continue knowing the salary wasn't what I really wanted. I was think so no negotiations at all? The CTA director that I interviewed with 1:1 was super nice. I told her what the HR person said and she said she'd check on it. In the end, I was offered what I asked for because I had previous clinical research exp.

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

    Interview

    Someone referred me, so I applied using their link. A ICON recruiter contacted me to do a screening interview and to tell me more about the role. The conversation went well and so I was set up to do an in-person interview with a manager and department head. It was a normal interview, average difficulty, nothing tricky but they asked good questions to get at my background and character.
