Interview Details – The hiring process is typical. You have a phone screen first with the recruiter, then if you pass that, you move on to an interview with two managers and a senior manager. I did not get the job. However, I applied for other positions at the company and two different recruiters contacted me again thinking that I would be perfect for the Customer Support Consultant.

Interview Details – Met and had chats/mini-interviews with five or six members of the department I ended up interning in. There were a lot of open-ended questions. Everyone from the department was very friendly and helpful – one of the most pleasant work environments I have had.

Interview Details –
First interview - Phone interview gathering background information.
Second Interview - In-person with HR rep and department supervisor.
Third Interview - In-person with department head.
Fourth 'Interview' - Phone test to determine how well applicant does in support role.
The entire interview process took about a month. Upon completion of the interview process the company performs a background check. At the time of my experience, summer 2012, IDEXX outsourced the background checks to a California based company called HireRight. HireRight has a terrible reputation and thousands of online reviews describing their overall incompetence. I'm not here to review HireRight, but the interview process at IDEXX is very much affected by that company.
The interview process at IDEXX was relatively pleasant, with everyone being courteous and timely about responses. But, the background check process involving HireRight is a joke,
Interview Question – Nothing out of the ordinary or too extreme. Answer Question

Interview Details – A 20-minute interview with a non-manager and I was hired as a full-time temporary IDEXX employee (no temp agency). I worked for about 19 months as a full-time IDEXX employee without benefits before I was made a benefited "real" employee.
Interview Question – The person who interviewed me didn't ask many questions. I think I was hired because I referred by someone to someone who worked there. I wonder if the department manager has ever seen my resume. Not a desirable or respectful process. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate. Because I was hired as a temp, and there was no time spent assessing my skills or experience, my feeling was that they would hire anyone, and that attempting to negotiate might prevent me from getting the job.
