    Research Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Pretty simple. Had a phone interview with a recruiter, and then a live interview at the Baltimore location about a week later. The recruiter was kind and gave me a brief overview of the company and what my role within the company would be. For the live interview, my interviewers asked me a bunch of questions specifically about my resume and how they thought I would fit in at this company and then gave me a tour.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL in April 2017.

    Interview

    Bureaucratic interview. Standard questions to gain understanding of your knowledge. Nothing outstanding. Nothing alarming or smug. Was pretty easy and not intimidating. Either I didn't ask the right questions or they didn't tell me but the job responsibilities were pretty unintelligent

    Clinical Monitoring Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed to set up a phone interview a couple of days later. It was relatively quick and easy, mostly personal questions about what kind of career I was looking for and salary expectations, before setting up a video conference interview for a few weeks later. I also had been emailed some forms to complete, as well as an activity that involved prioritizing tasks, which I emailed back and never heard anything about. I interviewed by video with two different employees, one in recruiting and one more involved with clinical trials. I thought the questions were rather straightforward and they encouraged taking time before answering them. I asked if I would hear back soon and they both said they would let me know either way.

    I never heard back from the company much to my surprise, since they both strongly hinted I was a shoe-in for the job. I was disappointed, and really only annoyed that no one ever contacted me about it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PAREXEL (College Park, MD (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Extremely easy. They asked questions about experience but mostly behavioral questions about working with others. I had a phone interview and a panel interview. They liked me, told me when I was starting then said the position was no longer available, which was almost more annoying then not getting the job.
