Phlebotomist Interview

Phlebotomist
Louisville, KY

I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in April 2010.

Interview Details – When I was hired, the process was different than it is today. I was interviewed by the supervisor and team leads after filling out an application. These days, they are hiring temps from agencies, who are making almost as much as people who have been with the company for years. They ask you questions pertaining to the job.

Interview Question – What is the most number of patients you have drawn in a day?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – At first I was offered a very low wage and I declined. I was negotiating with the human resources person. She went up about a quarter. I declined again. The supervise then called me asking me what was wrong and I explained it to her. I had been offered a job already making more. After a few minutes went by, the HR person called back with a somewhat better offer and I accepted. The benefits were great then (not so much now), uniforms were paid for, paid time off was good, etc.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

Interview Details – About a 2 hour interview process if you get a second interview. Many questions in the first interview about 10 pages of questions and test of knowledge of tubes. The second part allowed for more questions about the company and very open. Honest communication was there. It was relaxed and there was a flow of conversation that felt natural.

Interview Question – Most are what would you do in this situation type questions, if you would report other employees for not following rules or slacking.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation was involved.
