    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lenexa, KS

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Lenexa, KS) in September 2008.

    Interview

    I applied for a lab position. The HR person thought I applied for an administrative assistant position and proceeded to have me take a keyboarding test. She stopped me from taking the test when she realized that I was not applying for an admin position (even though I told her I applied for the lab position). She then talked with me about the company and said an interview would be forthcoming for the lab position. I called and e-mailed about the interview but never received a response. I assumed they hired someone else. I then received a call 5 weeks after the first meeting with the HR person. They wanted to interview me for a lab position. By this time, I was on the verge of taking another job but decided to attend the interview. They asked me the usual interview questions (greatest strengths and weaknesses) and a few lab vocabulary questions. I was taken on a short tour, was told there would be required overtime, and how much the position paid. The pay was low, they expected too much overtime, and I was not impressed that they waited 5 weeks to call for an interview. I wrote them a nice "thanks but no thanks" note and told them I accepted another position. If this is how they treated perspective employees, I was not interested in how they would treat me as an employee. This experience did not leave me with a good impression of this company.
