    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Americus, GA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Hello, I hope this message helps some.

    I applied through indeed.com, later I was contacted by a recruiter for the company where I was given a telephone interview. Next, I was told by the recruiter that the district manager would contact me for a second telephone interview. A week later the district manager contacted me and I was given the second telephone interview. Immediately after I was told by the district manager that she has made her decision and would like to offer me the position. She then stated that she will send my file to HR and they will contact me regarding the employment process. Once that has been completed by HR they will release me over to her for training. HR contacted me a week later to give me an overview of the position and conditional offer pending background, drug screening, and I9 verification. I am now in the last stages of the process which is the background check which includes an MVR, it's also really exstinsive, during the process I have signed my offer letter and has been given a start date of 10/9/17. Overall the process was smoothed with very minor kinks.

    I Wish you all the best of luck in your career endeavors, seek Jesus Christ first and he will set your paths straight! Amen

    Specimen Technician Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

    Interview

    I actually applied online for a different position. A week later I got an email with a link to do a prescreen. I waited a couple of days to do the prescreen. It consisted of filling out a form online (WPM, expected salary, etc) and then calling a number to do a phone interview with a machine. The machine asks you four basic interview questions and at the end thanks you for applying to said position (Specimen Technician). When the machine thanked me I was confused because I didn't apply to the Specimen Tech position but in the emails I would received from the recruiters, the correct position I was applying for was written so I thought nothing about it. A couple of days later I got another email saying they wanted to set up an in person interview but that it would take 1-2 weeks to get back to me. Just over a week later I started receiving calls from a recruiter to set up an interview. It took about 5days to set up an interview because we kept missing each other. I missed the recruiter's first call because he called at 6am and it took him the 5 days to call me back. When the recruiter mentioned I would be applying to a specimen technician position I finally decided to ask him about it and he was just like, "yeah." The next day I got an email from someone else explaining that the recruiters thought I would be a good fit for this position so they had me interview for this position. I decided to go ahead with interviewing for this position because it was still an entry level lab position but I really wish they asked me or told me first. I had my in person interview a week later. The man who interviewed me started off with showing me around the lab area. He then took me into a room to tell me more about the position and ask me questions. He was very casual and that helped me not to feel so nervous. At the end of the interview he told me it will take a week to hear back but it has been a month since the interview and I haven't heard back. I think the position is already filled but I really wish they would've contacted me to tell me I didn't get it. The waiting game is never fun.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I found out about this position through a family member that works there. I applied in June 2017. Did the over the phone interview which is an operator. You leave your response like its a voicemail. I was called in for an in person interview the next week. My interview was at 1:00am (July 2017). Interview was okay. The person that interviewed me looked annoyed, tired like he didn't want to be there. He asked questions about my resume that he knew already. Seemed like he didn't care at all.
