    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Marlborough, MA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was long procedure took almost 20 days of time to waste. I interviewed via phone, then data entry test, after that in Person Interview , the person taking interview was too rude in her attitude and was not paying enough attention , being 10 Pm in night she looked completely tired and not interested in Interview. Odd hours interview at 10 Pm. I was rejected after two days with no feedback provided. It was just entry level position and they were very rude and unprofessional in their behavior. wasted my too much of time . Poor communication from HR and they have no courtesy to even let people know that they are not moving forward with the candidate. Interview procedure and questions were too much in detailed and was not really needed for an entry level position where they advert as no experience needed.

    Lab Assistant (Microbiology) Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Las Vegas, NV) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online Feb 21. Received invitation to interview Feb 27, which included answering questions about availability, skills/work experience, etc., followed by a phone screen where a voice asked pre-recorded questions and gave 3 mins to answer each (it was identical to leaving a voicemail). Took phone interview on Mar 1 and received an email to set-up and in-person interview on Mar 2. Interview was scheduled for Mar 8.

    The interview was one-on-one, where the lab manager asked me a series of standard interview questions regarding work experience, strengths/weaknesses, why I wanted to work at Quest, etc. -- all of these were printed on a sheet where she filled in my answers and/or her opinions of them. Then she set me up to "shadow" one of the lab assistants in the Microbiology lab, who showed and explained all that they did in a day -- this lasted for about 30 mins outside of the lab manager's presence and I performed a few streak plates using patient specimen samples. The lab manager introduced me to everyone in the lab that day and everyone was very friendly. She walked me around to the specimen collection area and, finally, back to her office to close up the interview with any questions. She told me that there were two other candidates and that I would hear about the decision when other supervisors had reviewed her notes.

    From Mar 9 to Mar 20, I heard nothing from Quest Diagnostics. Early morning Mar 21, I received a status update via email from Talent Acquisition that I would not continue to be considered for the position, likely due to the fact I am a recent university graduate with no previous work experience to prove my bonafides.
