    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Chantilly, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Interviewed by phone and in-person. I was incredibly nervous, but was handled with care and impressed my boss. Was shown around the lab as well to see how the lab worked as well to see if this is what I had in mind. I was told my lab duties as well as any other vital information, like healthcare, salary, benefits and whatnot. The phone interview was first and it only had three questions and I barely remember them. The in-person interview was interesting, because it was my FIRST "Grown Up" Job interview and I was nervous. I got asked questions about my future, since I was fresh out of college and this job is a GED-minimum requirement as well as any sort of possible skills I'd have that would benefit my job (a lot) and what not. Is this thirty words yet.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

    Interview

    I applied, after a few days , I got an email to schedule a telephone (automated) interview. One week after the interview, I was called by a recruiter to schedule an interview with the Lab Manager .
    When I arrived at the office front desk , the receptionist was very pleasant . I knew I WAS NOT GETTING THE JOB as soon as the manger walked up to me . I said hi, offered a hand shake to introduce myself . She was cold, not smiling and walked In front of me and told me to follow her . No eye contact of any kind . She was so cold , She seems like the person who highly detest her job . Upon arrival at her office , she told me to pull a chair and the first thing she told me was , " you can always apply to other positions at this company if this doesn't work out". I felt so uncomfortable, she was intimidating. The interview lasted for 10 minutes . During the whole interview, she gave no eye contact and never smiled at me .
    This was the worst interview I had in my life .
    As predicted earlier , I never heard from the company again.
