    Contract Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bellshill, Scotland
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PPD (Bellshill, Scotland).

    Interview

    I submitted an application online and was invited for a telephone interview a few days later. This was 15-20 minutes and revolved around the role, the company and my own experience. I was then invited for a face-to-face interview with 3 managers and one HR representative. This lasted an hour and a half, the interviewers were really friendly and made me feel comfortable. It felt more like a chat than an interview. I was offered the job the next day.
