    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at QuEST Global (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call within 1 day then took a basic skills test on excel. I was told what the pay expected would be afterwards.

     I instantly knew something was wrong when they told me the pay up front and immediately declined as the offer was insanely low. They seem to either be trying to take advantage of college grads or HR is unaware of proper title/qualifications. Unless your hard up for an entry level position skip this job offer here as it was like sub 50k while my next one was ~70k..

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at QuEST Global (New York, NY) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was for a Software Developer to work on a Direct Hire in Schenectady, NY with their customer GE. The interview was good with questions related to my past experience and technical skills. The interview was conducted over phone for 30 minutes by the tech lead of the team and got the positive feedback by the interviewer as told by recruiter. But I waited almost a month for the next steps i.e. release of offer letter in a week as told by recruiter once confirmed by their customer. Initially they replied for my mails extending some time but later on they stopped without updating me further. I was not happy with the way they ended the process without final outcome.

    Mechanical Design Engineer Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at QuEST Global (Orlando, FL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    For a Mechanical Design Engineer position in Hartford, Connecticut

    I met the head recruiter (coincidentally) at an all-state job fair hosted at my university. We really made a connection and she like my experience so she made sure I filled out a paper application and turned it in that day. A couple of days later I got a call from her to answer some basic questions on what my experiences were and my salary expectation. a couple of week (3 or so) she called me up to do a computer interview, video recording. After that it took about another couple of weeks (2 or so) and she set up an online interview using webex. I was interviewed by 3 different people during the web session which was suppose to be structured into a cultural interview, followed by a presentation (I had to present to them what I learned and my final project or best experience related to the position) and then two technical interviews. My interview went a little differently since the person hosting the interview was not there and was replaced by someone else. Anyways, it was fairly simple. The first part was just talking about my background and the person interviewing me explained the company and some of the things he and his team does. Presentation was just that, me presenting what I've done. The technical interview though were very detailed and specific. Some of the questions are in the interview questions section. Anyways, overall it was great to connect with them, they are more concerned with seeing how you process information and your aptitude for learning. One of the interviewers said that he was going to keep asking me questions until I ran out of answers just to get of feel for my though process. At this point I have not heard anything except that the hiring manager and interviewers really liked me (quote from the recruiter) and that they haven't forgotten about me. If they make me an offer I am going to decline because I was offered a position by a competitor within 3 days of my interview.

    I did not interview with quest, the client did the interview. As far as Quest is concerned if I was good for the client, I was good for them because they can start billing the client.

I was then given the opportunity to share my knowledge of the field, the company, and my own expectations. The panel then took turns asking me a series of resume related questions which I answered in relation to the job I was applying for.
