Specimen Technician I Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took a day - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in August 2008.
Interview Details – Very casual, one on one interview. Nothing to sweat. Asked basic questions about my previous jobs and school.
Couldn't have lasted for more then 20 to 30 minutes. Then I was given a brief tour of the facility. I was actually offered the job on the spot, which was kind of nice. People were very friendly and helpful. It turned out to be one of the better jobs I've ever had.
Interview Question – What are you studying in school? Why are you studying that? Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Specimen Technician I Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.
Interview Details – A recruiter will contact you to take an online assessment which will essentially how quickly and accurately you can type information. If your results are adequate, the recruiter will contact you again for an initial phone interview. If you make it past the phone interview, the recruiter will contact you to set up an on-site interview which will most likely be at the odd times 8 or 9 PM. The interview is usually with the shift supervisors, consisting of 2 or more supervisors. Expect to be at the facility for at least 2 hours. A team lead will waste your time for about an hour showing you the facility and what they do. It's not very exciting. When the team leads find time for you, you will get passed on and taken to the conference room.
Interview Question – The questions are very generic in nature. Expect questions about past work experiences, how to handle difficult situations, multi-tasking, strengths and weaknesses, time management, future goals, etc. They don't ask you anything technical or relating to the lab or any lab techniques at all. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Salary was non-negotiable. It was base and there was a shift difference of 12 percent for working night shift.
