    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mississauga, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AGAT Laboratories (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very straight forward. No technical questions at all. I guess they just wanted to hire someone who had a bachelor degree to work for this position. They would show you the lab. If you are comfortable to work there, they may hire you right away.

    Administration Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AGAT Laboratories.

    Interview

    I submitted an application online. They do not send a confirmation notice that the application is received, which was kind of annoying. Don't expect to hear from them unless you win the resume lottery. I got a phone call a couple of days later where they ask a few basic questions (when can you start, do you have reliable transportation, do you know where their office is located). In my case, they lined up an interview right away. I had a second interview a few days later. I interviewed with different people each time and they were all very friendly. The atmosphere for the interviews was very relaxed. It felt more like a flowing conversation than a Q&A session. They deliberated for about a week before I was offered the position.

    Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AGAT Laboratories (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Interview was easy and very friendly but, I never got a call back. I had traveled from a different city to the interview site and I was pretty serious about the position. I am well qualified or even over qualified for the position. Even if it was a no, I expected a reply. In the screening interview itself I told the HR that I am serious about this and I will travel to the interview site if they are also really interested. Although the HR was friendly to me, I feel they have no respect for me or for any job seeker, as they never replied even after following up. They have to remember that a job seeker also deserves respect. Their attitude towards me shows that they are very unprofessional. I will not apply to this lab in the future. My message to all those who read this is, trust me and most of the other reviewers. I do not think this company is worth your time.

    Accounting Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AGAT Laboratories (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I applied to an advertisement on Indeed and only had to wait about a week for a call to set up an interview. The interview seemed very standard, someone from HR asked what my strengths and weaknesses were, what job experience I brought to the table, when I could start and what my salary expectations were. After the first interview I received a call in a couple days to meet with the Accounting Manager. She asked a few more in depth questions and explained a bit more in detail about the role. After my second interview I heard back in a couple days and they offered me the position. We agreed upon a salary and a start date and that's about it.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They had asked me during the initial call what my salary expectations were and I told them a range per hour. When they called they offered me a salary at the higher part of my range so I accepted.
