    Route Service Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Amherst, NY).

    Interview

    Manager described position.
    I was referred by another employee. I had to wait until position was listed online and apply that day with a resume. Positions do not stay online. You must apply as soon as it is posted. The whole process is very quick as Quest has no extra personnel.
    I questioned working 6 days a week and was told that I could bid on 5 day positions anytime. After 2 years there, I knew there were 8 people with more seniority waiting for 5 day positions, and there had not been one 5 day position listed in 2 years. When positions became available, they were modified to require 6 days.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

    Interview

    The interview was conducted over the phone, the interview was rushed. I could tell the person interviewing me wasn't even listening to my reply's to his questions. Then a week later I received an email telling me what a great interview I had done, and that I would be a great asset to the company, and have a great day. Sincerely, Human Resources, and that was it, I never heard from them ever again, not a no you didn't get the job, or please come in for a formal interview. Just a "I would be a great asset to the company" reply. Whatever, what a joke a complete waste of time.

    Medical Technologist I Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlborough, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    My interviewer was terrible. Clearly did not know what position he was interviewing me for or really what the lab did at all. He went very, very slow for the first 25 minutes then exclaimed (seemingly surprised) that he had another interview in 5 minutes and tried to rush through the remaining time. I looked him up after and it seems that Quest is outsourcing their initial employee interviews to another company (Cielo Talent). Really just a terrible experience overall.
