    Clinical Research Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at ICON (Baltimore, MD (US)) in July 2020.

    Interview

    I had two interviews for two different job listings (same position title, different clinical studies) with ICON via phone.

    The two interviews were vastly different due to the nature of the positions.

    The first interview was with 1 program manager. She asked me two questions about my work experience and most of the call was explaining the position. Roughly 35 minutes.

    The next interview was with 5 panel members including the Program Manager, Clinical Coordinator II, Project Manager, and Clinal Trials Manager.

    They asked about 8 or 10 questions. The interview was a little over an 1 hour, ~10 minutes explaining the position, ~40 minutes for questioning the candidate, ~15 minutes for questions for candidate to ask.

    Turnaround time for response was quick, both interviewers said they would make a decision within a week with no follow up interviews or phone calls. Decision was communicated through the company recruiter.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at ICON.

    Interview

    No interview was conducted. My former employer, a company named Mapi Group, was acquired by ICON plc in July 2017, onto their marketing team into a new, unstructured marketing associate role chiefly dealing with social media management, website management, project management (digital), and so forth - all of which I completed as a remote/work-from-home employee (full-time, hourly).`

    Medical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I interviewed at ICON in February 2020.

    Interview

    Incredibly unprofessional. Recruiter reached out to me via email. I replied with times that I was available for a screening and never heard from that recruiter again. Why reach out if your intention is to ignore the candidate? If the job was filled before you could perform the screening, email the candidate and let them know rather than wasting everyone's time.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ICON in September 2019.

    Interview

    I had to prepare a slide deck of "Why ICON?" I was recruited by someone in India from ICON.. The HR people were very unprofessional, didn't disclose the pay to me and would not consider pay over 120K. This role was too junior for me. Very little benefits with only 10% yearly bonus.
