Statistics Intern Interview

Statistics Intern
Madison, NJ

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in May 2012.

Interview Details – HR of Quest contacted me about a week after I submitted my resume, and they just confirmed the first on-site interview time with me.
Regarding the interview, the front-desk staff asked for my offer letter and photo identification before they informed the interviewer. Interview last 30 min or so. And most talks focused on my in-class project which is strongly related to this position and my interesting undergraduate activity experience which has nothing to do with the job. Questions about programming were also raised.To my surprise, nothing about my previous internships(they are not relevant anyway).

Interview Question – Nothing   Answer Question

Marketing Interview

Madison, NJ

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in February 2009.

Interview Details – Got invited in through a connection. Ist interview mid February, They did not have a job description. Went through full day of interviews with 6 different people. Was invited to take a timed online aptitude test, HR and hiring manager went silent for one month, after which there was suddenly a job description (read much like my resume)and they posted the job. I got invited back for a second round on interviews in late March and then heard nothing despite calls to HR and the hiring manager. I got a call in JUNE, from hiring manager telling me I did not get the job and detailing the persons qualifications that they hired which were entirely different than my skill set (and the job description). I also had 2 recomendations from within the company for the hire. Very dissappointing process and has soured my image of them as a company.

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Madison, NJ

The process took a day - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in October 2009.

Interview Details – I was interviewed by two managers for a senior analyst position. For anyone looking to interview with them, make sure you are familiar with the company and can speak to the current health care environment and how Quest will be effected by it. Also, make sure you know your basic financial concepts like ROE, ROI, Leverage, etc. The people were very open and professional. I got the impression that they run a really lean shop (read: understaffed, underpaid and overworked), which makes sense since their margins are pretty thin.
