    Phlebotomist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Issaquah, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LabCorp (Issaquah, WA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    Was contacted by HR rep and had initial phone interview, setup more extensive phone interview for later that week. Passed both phone interviews then proceeded to interview face to face during the second week. Problem was I was interviewing for a $72,000 Trainer position that was posted for external applicants only. Was then told during the face to face that they only filled those positions internally and they only post it externally to draw in highly qualified applicants for lower paying positions IE the $14.50 hr job I was offered on the spot and was told It would only be on the table while I was in the room. I politely told them No Thank You and asked them to never waste my time again.

    Phlebotomist Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at LabCorp (Atlanta, GA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process begins with a phone interview with the HR representative handling the position. They may contact you at any time during their business hours, which run from 8am to 5pm. During this part of the interview process, your qualifications and interest for the position are measured. A brief description of the position available is given to you and questions you may have for the HR rep are answered. Once the conversation is complete the HR rep gets in touch with the supervisor for the position and gives them the run down and their thoughts on your candidacy. If the green light is given, a second call will follow with the purpose to schedule and appointment for a face to face interview.

    At the face to face, the supervisor and HR rep will meet with you and ask a few questions in regards to your problem solving skills, customer service skills and phlebotomy experiences. Example situations will be presented to you to gauge your response and reaction. I strongly recommend that when asked such questions, you pause and THINK about your response. Do not blurt out the first thing that comes to mind but process the information and state it clearly. Supervisors and managers like to see prospective employees problem solve effectively. A supervisor may also ask you to partake in a "play acting" of the way in which you would approach a patient in a phlebotomy setting.

    If your interview goes well, you will receive a call within 24 to 48 hours from your face to face with an offer and if you ROCKED your interview, you should receive a call within 20 minutes from your face to face, as I did.

    Negotiation

    Phlebotomy is essentially entry level so negotiating an hourly wage is not recommended. Generally, LabCorp pays fairly and takes into account previous salary to years of experience to education ratios.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at LabCorp (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    After applying to Labcorp for over a year, I was finally contacted for a phone interview by a HR recruiter. After the phone interview I was then set up for a face to face interview. Apparently I was not qualified for that current position, but was then contacted a few weeks later by an Hr recruiter who had been working on my file. I then was contacted by another Supervisor at a different location, and was offered an position a little over a week later.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at LabCorp (Richmond, VA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted by two supervisors. There was a mock draw that required me to describe in detail the entire process of drawing a patient, down to getting the specimens ready for send out. You are asked the order of the draw, how to handle a difficult stick and the youngest patient you have drawn. There was also a diagram where you are asked the proper sites for the pediatric draw. The questions asked are consistent with what you learned in school, and how to handle specimens properly. The interview is relaxed enough to answer the questions in a timely manner and both supervisors interact with you politely and professionally.

    Interview Questions

    • None of the questions were unexpected or difficult, the questions were pretty much about what you learned in school.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was easy. I was asked what rate I desired, told the starting rate and when offered the position, was compensated for my experience. I accepted and am very happy with the offer.

    I applied online. I interviewed at LabCorp.

    Interview

    Very Long!!!! It took 2 interviews, many phone calls and 3 months to get hired and start working. Have to be patient. I thought the interview went well and was surprised when I didn't get a phone call. I followed up when I saw the job position still posted and than is when I got a second interview. I was told they had to wait for approvals and for HR to process. I was disappointed in the process but I did accept the job.
