    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QuEST Global (Hartford, CT).

    Interview

    I think it was the interview for which I was better prepared for. They asked to talk about myself and I asked each question before it was questioned to me. I was tired to be rejected in other interviews and tried to give the best of me in this one despite the possibilities of being choose for the job or rejected.

    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..

    Interview Questions

    • Proficiency with Excel/Word/Etc... along with an online test on it. You can google the answers if needed while taking it.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QuEST Global (East Hartford, CT) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and interviewed in person several months ago. The interview consisted of a company/position overview, quick presentation about a school project followed by questions, and then two short technical interviews. I thought it went alright and two weeks later HR told me they would be extending an offer. I've followed up a few times and been told they are waiting for the customer to give them a statement of work. It's been months and still nothing. If you interview find out if they actually have a job to offer you.

    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.

    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.
