    Proposal Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Parexel (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I had two rounds of interviews, both with the HR personnel. Following the second round, I was told that they are looking for someone with a direct CRO experience and therefore won't be moving forward with my application. I have >6 years of CRO experience, which I clearly mentioned in the resume and also reiterated it in the email to the HR. But they followed up saying that they also have some budgetry constrains. I mentioned my salary expectation in the first round and another HR person said that it seemd like a reasonable expection. So, overall, I felt like they were trying to make excuses and did wanted to come out and say.

    I can accept rejection but the least I expect is honesty, which I believe was not delivered here.

    Thank you again for the opportunity to interview and I truly hope you found the best fit for the postion.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Parexel in August 2020.

    Interview

    The process was pretty fast. 1st and 2nd interview were an hour long each. Felt super good and hopeful at the end of each interview. Was told I will do great and everything was perfect. 48hr hours later I received at email that I was not chosen. I was confused as to what possibly happened because everything was flowing smoothly. It’s sucks how they mess with your feeling and get you hopeful then within 24-48 hours they email you that you weren’t chosen.
