    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PAREXEL in March 2014.

    Interview

    I went through an outside recruiter. She reviewed my resume and told I would be a good fit for the position. We reviewed my resume and she took down some notes before she forwarded my resume to Parexel. In a few days later, I had a telephone chat with the outside recruiter's manager. We talked and she asked me some questions about my resume and she also asked what I did at a monitoring visit.
    I was scheduled for a telephone interview with HR personnel from Parexel and it went pretty well. At least I felt comfortable answering the questions. I also had the opportunity of asking a lot about the company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PAREXEL in July 2012.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted over the phone. There was one brief, very general interview with an HR person, and then another more in-depth one with someone from clinical. Everyone was very friendly, and all of the questions asked during the second interview were pretty easy for someone with experience in the industry. Following the interviews, there was a standard background check. They did contact each of my references, and the offer process was nearly held up when one of my references (a PI I worked for when I was a study coordinator) proved difficult to get a hold of. There was no drug screen.
