Advice to Management
No advice needed. Keep doing what you're doing.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Quest Diagnostics (Chantilly, VA).
I submitted my resume with a referral. I was called in for an in-person interview, where I spoke with an HR representative (though there are no longer in-house HR departments at Quest locations anymore) and my would-be manager. It was a very easy-going conversation, and the manager gave me a tour of the lab and where I would work.
