    Lab Aide Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CryoLife (Kennesaw, GA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called without notice several weeks later for a phone interview. I was in the middle of something when they first called, but they were happy to schedule it for a few hours later, when I had time. After that, I had an in person interview with HR and took a series of tests that took about an hour. The knowledge questions weren't particularly difficult, but some of them were timed, and the personality test seemed fairly standard. A week after that, I had an interview with a supervisor, which included a tour of the facility, and then another with two upper management people. During the background check and reference portion (which took a couple of weeks), they gave me an opportunity to provide another reference when one of my original ones proved to be unreachable.

    Lab Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CryoLife.

    Interview

    The company did not respond at all to online job applications. I had to drop off my resume personally before I got any further. When HR did decide to discuss a job opening, they told me about a different job than the one I was applying for. So when I went in for the interview it was a little confusing at first. I didn't tell my interviewer the HR got it mixed up, I just winged it and got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • It wasn't a difficult question, but I was unsure how to respond when the Manager told me I would have to be able to work with the Supervisor. Little did I know at the time it meant, "the supervisor is impossible to get along with, and you will have to get along with him."   Answer Question

    Entry Level Lab Position Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CryoLife.

    Interview

    Initial interview was with HR followed by the skills and personality tests. I think they weed out most people there. The tests are designed to eliminate people who are lying about themselves so you have to be sure you are consistent. I didn't find the skills test very challenging. One tested visual accuracy with a which picture matches this one kind of test. Another was selecting whether or not 2 numbers matched. I could see that portion being tough if you have minor dyslexia problems.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were fairly standard. I always find it challenging to answer the "give us an example of when you did...." questions. Just prepare for those!   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CryoLife (Atlanta, GA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    It was a pleasant experience, where we discussed an already filled job, but wanted to get me into the system since I had an internal recommendation. During the discussion, the HR rep discovered that I might be more interested in a job in the lab rather than at a desk. My resume was then forwarded to other departments that had openings.
