Application Details

I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at QuEST Global in October 2013.

Interview Details

I was contacted by someone at QuEST (I did not apply). about a month went by with a few phone conversations and eventually received an in person interview in East Hartford. Since this was my first "real" job out of college I would say the interview was pretty standard. In person interview was very laid back. Spoke about the holiday parties and company activities a bit and was told about the position a little more in depth. I was asked a few basic questons and that was that. Interview VS actual job varies

Interview Questions

    reviewed resume and asked basic questions about experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at QuEST Global in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was given a call by a recruiter and then got a call after a week from the company for an interview. So, here I go in for an interview and the hiring manager so call was so busy that she did not come on time and I waited in the lobby for 20 min. So, here she finally comes and what a rude lady she is. She gave me her id and left inside the office without waiting for me to take me inside. So, I entered the office and I totally blanked out because I did not know where she went so I asked someone on where I should go. Then few mins later I was taken to this conference room where there was this another lady she was really nice. So, now the Hiring Manager finally comes in and she talks about the company. As the interview went along she did not make a proper eye contact with me and was too busy looking at my resume. While the other lady asked me questions regarding Excel and other MS office applications. My only complaint is I don't understand why the Hiring Manager had so much attitude. She could have just be nice and polite. Some questions that she asked was a little bit hard to understand since my first language is not English so I asked her politely weather she can repeat the questions to me and so she did. Once the interview was over she left immediately and did not say anything for a week on weather I was considered to move forward or not. So here I wait and I finally emailed the hiring manager and she did not even respond to me "HOW RUDE". Time passed by and I finally at the end emailed my recruiter.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was as such difficult but be prepared to get questions from this Hiring Manager particularly as she is really rude and impolite. Other than that its not that bad.   Answer Question

    The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at QuEST Global in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    They first call you (by recommendation of a recruiter) and ask if you'd be interested in interviewing. I was interviewed by 2 people, shown a PowerPoint slide presentation about "how great" the company is. They fail to mention that the 10 days of vacation given to you must be applied to unpaid holidays (since no holidays are paid) and furlough days/weeks. The culture is young, newly graduated people mostly, with the occasional senior.

    Interview Questions
    • They really were curious about my ability to use MS Office.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There were no negotiations. There was an offer letter with the ability to accept or reject it.

    Interview Details

    a bit unorganized with the left hand not knowing what the right is doing, when the left finally figures out what the right is doing they are already behind the eight ball.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at QuEST Global in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by HR and scheduled a one-on-one phone interview with the section head. After the interview got an email from HR that the section head was interested in me and wanted to schedule an in-person interview. In-person interview started with a presentation of my previous work and then had one-on-one's with other project managers. Took me out to lunch and that was it.

    Interview Questions
    • What is your background and experience related to the job opening?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was given an offer and deemed it too low based on market research. I countered but was told that this was the highest that could be offered. Reason being is that since this is a contract company the customer(s) hold the power to dictate really what can be offered. And the economy being the way it is all employees here are getting paid ~ 15% below median market value.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at QuEST Global.

    Interview Details

    One phone interview and one on sight interview. Both were fairly causal and became more of a conversation than a Q and A. Seemed important to stress flexibility and willingness to do any type of work.
