    Interview

    The process included multiple phone interviews with both the contracted recruiter and with two human resource representatives. The process was relatively long and drawn out. From first contact to notification my candidacy would not be pursued was over two months. Through the process all indications were positive and after each step was told they would be in contact with me. However in the end I had to call to get the status the job was filled.

    I applied online – interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

    Interview

    The interview was standard meet and greet. Met with 2 people. They asked questions, I asked questions, we had a few laughs then it was over. They never, ever got back to me. They said they would get back to me in 2 weeks. That came and went. I emailed, they ignored.. 3 times. Lousy people, lousy company.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Madison, NJ) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process started out with an HR phone screen which was very basic. My information was then passed along to the hiring manager and he decided to bring me in for an onsite interview. At the onsite interview, I met with 3 people including the hiring manager. All of the interview questions were very standard and all 3 people were extremely nice and easy to talk to. After this, I spoke with two other higher level executives on the phone who basically just wanted to make sure that I was a good fit for the position. I was then offered the position several days later. The compensation package was very generous but I declined the offer and accepted my current employers counter.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Quest Diagnostics in June 2014.

    Interview

    First off, phone interview with manager, then follow-up phone interview with department heads. Then face-to-face interview. Took a personality quiz and had to fill out massive amounts of paperwork. The paperwork should have been on-line, what a waste of paperwork. Some of the forms did not even apply to the position I applied for.
