The interview was very straight forward and handled well. Laid back but also good questions. Nothing too difficult was asked but did dive deep into resume to ask relevant questions and get more information out of interviewee

It was straightforward. Started off with a call from a recruiter and then next step was with a senior recruiter. They ended up going with an internal candidate. Pleasant demeanor.

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Parexel in Jul 2021

Interview

Had a great 30 minute conversation with a recruiter, was asked to provide some further information (summary of document experience) via email shortly after that conversation. 2 days later I found in the applicant portal that they would not be moving forward with my application. No email from the recruiter or hiring manager. For context, I have a PhD (BS is the stated requirement) and was referred to this position by a current employee. Fortunately, I now know that Parexel sticks to their apparently strict guidelines for hiring i.e. extensive experience in the exact role is mandatory and they do not accept candidates with high potential. Will not make the mistake of applying here again.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about yourself, what MS Word features do you use, are you comfortable with MS Excel, salary expectations, will you take a writing test?

I applied through an employee referral The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Parexel in Jun 2021

Interview

I had 1 hour interview scheduled and it went really smooth with department's senior manager. Just one round of interview was taken and rest discussion with HR and documents submission. Overall it was a great experience as many organisations conducts multiple rounds of interview and waste their as well candidate's time and mostly don't even give feedback once they reject you.
