    I worked at Questar Assessment part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, pleasant work areas, breaks lunch are well coordinated.

    Cons

    The training session is difficult for a new person coming in. I was in a group of 60 and 3 of us were new. It basically was a review for the 57 returnees. When a question was asked by the leader, they would spout out the answer. I didn't know what they were talking about. The leader would say, "Go to 5.5.8B1 Far-Link Bullet one." I had no idea what it was or where it was. Then they would read a sentence and I couldn't find it. I had to learn the book by myself but could not take it out of the room. I did not qualify. I wasn't surprised.

    Advice to Management

    For people coming in for the first time, have a day of training for them first so they can become familiar with the materials used.

    It was a fairly easy interview process that took about 20 minutes to complete. In addition to the interview, I took a basic math, writing and reading test to ensure that my skills would match the needs of the position.
