    Pros

    Excellent pt opportunity for anyone with a BA degree! I've worked in the seasonal scoring department for 5 years and plan to continue as long as they will have me. I work at the Apple Valley location.
    Friendly and approachable project managers
    Excellent training and tech help
    Culture that demands high performance, challenges your thinking, inspires you to do even better
    FUN environment: high praise, team activities, stretch breaks, book swaps, and foodie nights
    EXCELLENT hourly compensation. If you're looking for extra income, this is the place.

    Cons

    Project managers from other locations could learn a trick or two about respect and training from the top notch project leaders at AV. There are 1-2 that I would not consider working for on future projects.
    Career note: Questar promotes from within, but I'm not aware of how to move up in the scoring center area.
    Senior Mngmt note: only 4 stars due to very limited interaction. They seem highly knowledgeable and engaging when they make rounds.

    Advice to Management

    Evening staff would truly appreciate having a clean place to eat our dinners or have breaks. I understand the need to coordinate with custodial staff, but the evening areas are often grungy and unsanitary with food, water, and spills everywhere in the break rooms and bathrooms.

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Questar Assessment (Apple Valley, MN) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The interviewer was very pleasant and respectful. I was asked to bring my college diploma for proof. So make sure to have that with you. Also take into consideration that you are expected to take exams in the category for which you are applying for. For example, algebra, math, English, etc.
