    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Intertek (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a face to face with the operations manager of the location and the engineering manager. It was a structured interview consisting of them going through an hr acronym guide and for each letter giving an example of how it applies or how youve utilized various skills/experiences/etc. It was long. Took around an hour. Then they give a tour of the facility. I found out that I did NOT get the job on a Friday and I had interviewed on a Monday.

    The inital interview was via phone with the director of the department. A week later, an in-person interview was set up with four people. I was given a tour of the facility, then spetn about 30 minutes with each person. The tone was conversational and casual. Very comfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • Strange as it may sound, the question that caught me off guard was, "What are you reading right now?" I had been spending so much time searching job sites and sending out resumes that I hadn't been reading much and couldn't remember the last book I had read.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Intertek (Houston, TX) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Contacted me directly soliciting interest. Numerous follow-ups, being informed I would be contacted again after a managers return from travel, I would be invited for a direct interview within a week, etc. Never received further communication. Needless to say they are on my "do not consider" list.

    Lab Tech Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The hiring process consists of filling out an application and/or submitting a resume online via the company website. As with many other companies, it helps (although not imperative) to know someone on the inside. In some cases they will already know the candidate they intend to hire, but you may get an interview anyhow. The interview is more of a tour of the facility and general conversation than an interview. I would suggest doing some research and coming up with some questions that would lend the interviewer to believe that you have some experience or at least some insight as to what the job entails.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Intertek.

    Interview

    Very long cumbersome process. Application process took about 20 minutes. I heard back a month after Appling. I had a phone interview and an in person interview. The interview was simple. They asked standard text book questions. They asked about current salary and what I wanted to be making in five years from now. I was offered the job. It is notable to say they were not open to negotiating pay or the start date. The offer letter and screening process was long. I took a drug test and went through an extensive background check. They checked every employer on my resume which went back over ten years. Because they went so far back they had a hard time tracking down an employer. They asked me to provide a W2 for a job I worked for five months over ten year ago. They also validated my driver’s license. Whoever they had validated my license did not know what they were doing and could not properly validate it. I also had to do the leg work there as well. I had to have a non-compete notarized. Needless to say it was a frustrating process.

    Negotiation

    They were not open to negotiating pay or the start date
