    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and Interview process for me was excellent. However, the Human Resource people I dealt with have since left for the same cons I listed.

    Interview Questions
    • "you have a child, what will you do regarding work if your child is sick?" I thought that was a ridiculous and very shovenist question to ask a mother! Obviously you strive to be responsible regarding work attendance, but certainly ur job attendance is NOT more important than your child.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details

    The interviews are your standard interview questions in the opening part of the process where you review work history and current job responsibilities. Then it transitions into your skill set for the position by asking for in depth responses to situations.

    Interview Questions
    • All of the questions are challenging when you do not prepare. Be ready to respond to situations such as dealing with difficult employees; dealing with change and how well you interact and communicate with upper management.   Answer Question

    Technical Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    The department was desperate as they have had extremely high turnover in the position. Because of their desperation and difficulty in filling the position, they deliberately lied to me about how long the position had been vacant and they lied about the extent of the needs of the position because of their difficulty in keeping people in the position. If a candidate must be honest about their experience and credentials, then my expectations are that a prospective employer be no less transparent. Why would I want to work for a company that can be deceptive to its workforce?

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I accepted and in 6 months resigned when I realized that Quest had not been forthright with me.
