Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in May 2017.

Interview

Applied for the job online.
The posting was taken down a week after interviewing. Two weeks after applying I was prompted via email to schedule a phone interview. Only had 3 options, all in the same day.
Spoke for about 20 minutes with a the interviewer. Asked me several questions, about past experiences, can i handle the requirements of the job, how much i wanted to make, etc. The interview went pretty well (I felt it did anyway). I was told I would hear back within a week.
The next morning I received an email stating I won't be considered for the position (Which I thought was a very fast response ). Either I had a major red flag during my interview, or they already filled the position (they use aerotek in my area as a recruiter).

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Norristown, PA).

    Interview

    Applied online and scheduled a phone interview the next day. It went well and they told me I would hear back, no matter what, in a week and a half tops to determine if I received a formal interview or not. I never heard back, and they outsource their interviewing process, so there is no one you can call to check in.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Lenexa, KS) in May 2016.

    Interview

    After applying and exchanging emails with the hiring manager, I was contacted within a few days by a recruiter who set up an in-person interview with the manager. Before the interview, I was taken on a short tour of the facility and was given some background on the work which was done in the facility. After the tour, we went into a conference room. The manager asked me a series of questions from a predetermined list while he wrote synopses of my responses down. The questions only took about 20 minutes.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Lenexa, KS) in August 2011.

    Interview

    It was a good standard 30-minute interview about my qualifications, the work hours, culture, and what are expected of me. The person who interviewed me was nice and direct. He showed me around the main laboratory and explained each step of the process of drug-testing. The people were really nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Norristown, PA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    First I was shown around the lab where I would be working. Then while in the lab I was awkwardly asked a series of interview questions by two quest lab employees. They wrote all of my answers down. Asked things like "what motivates you", "how do you motivate others", etc. Then I was taken into an office with two men who were both very boring, uninterested and cold. The office I was in was 100 degrees. I was wearing a full suit and everyone else had shorts and short sleeved shirts. After the interview I asked them when I could expect to hear from them regardless of their decision. They told me at some point in the summer. I was NEVER contacted. Bad experience, not professional.
