    Quality Assurance Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Lab Support in September 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a call about a week later. The person I spoke to went into depth about the role that they had open, then asked me a couple of questions. The fact that I'm currently working full-time and probably making more than what the position offers is what probably led the recruiter into telling me to keep them posting about my job situation if anything changes. Overall, the phone interview lasted only 12 minutes, according to my phone's call timer. This would probably be good for new graduates without a job lined up, but for anyone else, it wouldn't be.

    Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Lab Support (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    A pleasant recruiter called a few days after I submitted a resume through my university's career website. I had to fill out a brief assessment and a 10-question survey to gauge whether or not I'd be a good fit for the role. The next step was a half-day interview and job shadow at a nearby office.

    Red flags appeared after I arrived. I wandered my way through a deserted entrance to the "pit," where I found only four cubicles with bodies. Seemed rather odd for a mid-week afternoon. Anyway, the team members asked me about my goals, background, and education. All three were friendly and helpful. However, one of the recruiters outright told me that this wasn't his dream career. I appreciated his honesty, I guess. I was then led to a conference room where I proceeded to have a FaceTime interview with a manager in another state. She said she would forward my information to an area manager who would want to speak with me as well. Additionally, my recruiter had instructed me to call her to debrief post-interview, but my voicemail and email went unanswered.

    The next week, I received an email stating the team was going to "continue their search." Not really sure what/who they were ultimately looking for. Be forewarned that the starting base salary is VERY low for the industry, and the sales field in general. Cold-calling and entertaining clients are also part of the package deal.

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lab Support.

    Interview

    After submitting an application, I received an email requesting a phone interview. At the end of phone interview, I was asked to come into the office for an interview. When I got there, it was a Face Time with a manager in another state. Once I got home, I had to have a second phone interview with another manager from a different state. Shortly after that, I received an offer. The whole process felt extremely rushed. They were obviously desperate to fill the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Lab Support (Salt Lake City, UT) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Some recruiters call to ask you few questions. I suppose to gauge if you are qualified for the job. Sometimes I can hear the sound of giggling in the background and found myself wonder if I said something wrong. At the end, they tell you they will submit your resume, but it's just a lie. If they don't want hire you, they say that to end the interview. Overall, recruiters sound pleasant and friendly. I feel like some of the questions they ask are irrelevant to the position. They demand that you lie to them. if you feel like the pay is low, tell them it's ceiling high. If you think the office is small, tell them it looks like Trump's mansion

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Lab Support (Phoenix, AZ).

    They allow you speak candidly on all experiences in college and work. Where most employer interviews would grill you about job specific questions to access your worth, Lab Support builds a story to sell you to a prospective company. This helped immensely being a recent college graduate with no real world experience.
