Medical Technologist Interview

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Chantilly, VA) in July 2017.

Interview

I had 3 phone interviews, one from an outside recruiter, and two from their hiring division. The first three phone interviews went fantastic, with the final one being the best. I was given a range of days in which they would be able to interview me, which they were very generous and flexible.

It went down hill once I had my first in person interview with an HR director at the facility, and they completely glossed over my answers to their questions about past research, and asked only about grades in college. I moved to a final interview with two lab managers who seemed to not know about my interview. They were disjointed, and had no questions for me, other than about college grades, scores, etc. They regularly spoke over each other, or had nothing but dead silence. It was a very awkward experience.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Chantilly, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through their website. Was contacted first by an outsourced company that did preliminary interview. This was pretty simple and straightforward. Asked availability and they explained job description. Then was asked to come in for an in person interview. Meet with the manger of the department and she asked me some more detailed questions about my work history. She also gave a tour of the lab and told me some basic procedures that they run. Was not offered job due to conflict in training schedule

I met the laboratory supervisor who interviewed me for 30 minutes and then showed me around the lab. Another 3 weeks later, I got the call from HR telling that I had been hired. The whole process was smooth and fast paced.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Lenexa, KS) in May 2009.

    Interview

    I was hired prior to Quest Diagnostics purchasing our lab. The interview process now is efficient, as HR will not contact potential employees unless they fit the criteria necessary for the position. They will then forward qualified applicants to the manager to review. In our area, our manager spends hours in each interview. I usually feel sorry for the people having to waste as many as five hours listening to her!

    Interview Questions

    • Probably describing a difficult position I have been in and how I may have handled it differently.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The only thing negotiable was the hourly rate. They quoted me an amount that was only $.50 more than I was making. I countered with another $1.50 an hour on top of that and they accepted.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

    Interview

    Not thorough enough. Not enough time too see Micro Lab. Felt rushed. Everyone was so busy that I felt they would hire me even though the interview was rushed. I was glad to be hired but felt uneasy about their swiftness in hiring me.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Newark, NJ).

    Interview

    First there was an automated phone interview with HR. In the automated interview you are asked a question and then you are to say your answer which is recorded. This automated phone interview is followed up by a brief phone call interview with an actual HR person. Then I had an in person interview with a group lead followed by an interview from the section supervisor. They ask pretty standard/ basic interview questions regarding experience related to job, and conflict resolution.
