    Specimen Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in June 2017.

    Interview

    Very easy. Positive experience. A set of questions online, kind of like a worksheet followed by a phone interview with 4 questions. The phone interview had pre-recordings of questions. Up to 3 minutes for each question. Don't have to use the whole time.

    I waited OVER AN HOUR for the interview. They double booked all of the interviewees. Very frustrating! Once I finally got into the door for the interview I was only in the room for less than a half hour and the questions were all behavioral in nature.

    FT Courier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Juan Capistrano, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (San Juan Capistrano, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. First I had a phone interview. They asked simple questions like do I have any similar experience, what's my schedule like etc. I got a call back a few days later to come in for a face to face interview which was also simple. He looked over my resume and asked questions like are you comfortable driving at night, how far do you live, are you comfortable handling specimens etc... He said he would get back to me in a few weeks but he sounded promising because I had many years of courier experience and I lived close by he seemed to like me very much. 2 weeks passed by and I never got a call back. So I called HR (which is the same HR for all locations) after 3 weeks and they replied that the hiring manager has yet to get back to them about who they are hiring. 5 weeks pass by and I have not received an email or anything so I call again and they tell me the same thing. It's been 5 weeks! It doesn't take 5 weeks to decide if they want to hire me or not. I believe I am not hired but they keep beating around the bush.. I don't know why they can't tell me straight out that I'm not hired instead of stringing me along for several weeks when they said it would take 2 weeks. I've been applying for other jobs, I'm not just waiting around but I still wonder if they will ever give me a call or at least an email stating that I'm not hired.. not sure why they can't be professional
