Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Covance

Interview

I made my salary expectations clear at the beginning with the recruiter, and then went on to complete 5 hours of interviews. I really liked the position and the team but then was shocked when they offered me 30k less than the salary range I gave them and 10k less than what I am currently making. I’m not sure why they thought I would take that or why they even bothered interviewing me and wasting everyone’s time - my impression is that salaries here are WAY below market value and that they will try to get you to take a lowball offer.

Interview Questions
  • Describe how you handled a conflict with a coworker or vendor

Difficult Interview
Application

I interviewed at Covance

Interview

Everyone was polite during an interview, but every time we interviewed the time we actually discussed the position and qualifications was about a quarter of the length I had been told to predict. The process took about four months altogether and then when I was waiting for an offer or rejection they simply disappeared.
