    Logistics Analyst-Clinical Trials Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very unprofessional. The HR representative basically pressured me to interview within a few hours after she e-mailed me. Her reasoning was that she wants to get a pool of candidates finalized by the close of business. I had a strong interview and the HR representative said she would forward my information to the hiring manager and I would hear back from the HR department within the next few days. Anyway, they never called back and they did not respond to my follow up e-mail. In addition, the HR representative did not know much about the position and had a really negative demeanor throughout the interview. I felt the HR representative went through the motions of the interview and did not seem to care on what I said in my interview.

    Client Service Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Teterboro, NJ
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Teterboro, NJ) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Internal request to transfer with your last mid-year or annual review and your most updated resume. Attach to the job title and submit. The interview is conducted by a representative from Human Resources, the hiring manager for the department and either the department director or one of the supervisor's for the hiring department. You're ask twenty questions a few change from interview to interview but eighty percent of the questions remain the same. You're told you will be contacted in one week with the decision. Unfortunately this rarely occurs. Instead you find out who received the position or promotion and rarely receive any feedback on the process. This is at least how it works internally.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever had a disagreement with a policy or decision made by management? If so what was it and how did you handle or approach the situation?   1 Answer

    Route Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Amherst, NY
    Accepted Offer
    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.
