    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at California Cryobank (Boston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    It was straight to the point and interviewer was not really inquisitive. Asked about work experience in the past. Did not ask much about the requirements for the job nor any questions really related to the job. Overall nonchalant attitude by the interviewer.

    Interview Questions

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at California Cryobank in July 2017.

    Interview

    Sent in application a while back and forgot until I was contacted by a recruiter. I had a very short easy phone interview shortly after with their HR manager. Ultimately not given the job offer since there was no room to move anywhere upwards in the branch with a B.S. and the job only required a high school diploma.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at California Cryobank.

    Interview

    Began with online application, followed by a phone screening done by HR. Once selected, I interviewed with three department heads as they like to hire based not only on experience but fit as well. All interviews were conducted either by phone or Skype as I was living out of state at the time. Very accommodating during the interview process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at California Cryobank (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    A fairly extensive process that included interviews with employees at different levels and areas of the company. Met first with the HR Director and was given a schedule for the day. Was a very professional yet fairly casual process. Most of my interviewers were good about sharing their experiences and why they liked the company in addition to asking me questions. The interviewers were willing and open to answer my questions about the company and their experiences as employees.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at California Cryobank (Cambridge, MA).

    Interview

    The interview process was very quick. Less than a week after I sent in my online application , I had a phone interview with an HR representative. A few days later, HR contacted me to schedule an interview at the branch. The day after the in-person interview, I spoke to the Donor Program Manager over the phone and within a day or two I got the offer. The interview at the office with the branch manager was very informative. I toured the facility, met the other employees and talked to the person who would be primarily training me and working with me the most.
