    I worked here for many years. Overall, I'd say its a pretty descent place to work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Scottsdale Healthcare.

    Interview Details

    Interviewing with laboratory management was a good experience - they asked relevant questions and I was at ease. I was given a tour of the lab at the end of the interview and got a sense of the lab as a whole. Human Resources, on the other hand, was almost comically inept. Unreturned phone calls (regarding phone interviews that THEY set up!), weeks of waiting between interview and offer (which was supplied in 3 emails of increasing urgency asking me to reply or else lose the offer - but all emails were sent from HR at the SAME TIME) Other observations included the HR rep for in-house job applicants was promising shifts/departments that were not in the job description in the job posting (this happened to 2 people, actually). An email meant for one candidate (who was getting an offer) was sent to another candidate (who was not getting an offer) ... the list goes on. HR was, in my experience, really a big mess. This may or may not still be the case, as the company is at this time undergoing a merger and re-structuring.

    Interview Questions
    • The laboratory manager asked me a few technical questions, mostly regarding what to do when things go WRONG - a contaminated collection, lost specimen, mislabeled specimen, etc.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation - I was entry level at the time and paid fairly for that level of experience.
