    FT Courier Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (San Juan Capistrano, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. First I had a phone interview. They asked simple questions like do I have any similar experience, what's my schedule like etc. I got a call back a few days later to come in for a face to face interview which was also simple. He looked over my resume and asked questions like are you comfortable driving at night, how far do you live, are you comfortable handling specimens etc... He said he would get back to me in a few weeks but he sounded promising because I had many years of courier experience and I lived close by he seemed to like me very much. 2 weeks passed by and I never got a call back. So I called HR (which is the same HR for all locations) after 3 weeks and they replied that the hiring manager has yet to get back to them about who they are hiring. 5 weeks pass by and I have not received an email or anything so I call again and they tell me the same thing. It's been 5 weeks! It doesn't take 5 weeks to decide if they want to hire me or not. I believe I am not hired but they keep beating around the bush.. I don't know why they can't tell me straight out that I'm not hired instead of stringing me along for several weeks when they said it would take 2 weeks. I've been applying for other jobs, I'm not just waiting around but I still wonder if they will ever give me a call or at least an email stating that I'm not hired.. not sure why they can't be professional

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (San Juan Capistrano, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    I've applied to MANY openings at Quest, but the only contact I received was a company within the Quest campus. I went in for the interview, which went normally. However, I never received a follow up. I'm unsure how Quest handles its hiring process, as I am very well and even overqualified for many of their available positions.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (San Juan Capistrano, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The interview itself was no pressure and very laid back. I thought I did a good job but I guess it wasn't up to their standard. What gets me is that they didn't bother to let me know if I was hired or not....They should at least let me know the outcome so that I can move on.
