I applied online and interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.
Interview Details About a 2 hour interview process if you get a second interview. Many questions in the first interview about 10 pages of questions and test of knowledge of tubes. The second part allowed for more questions about the company and very open. Honest communication was there. It was relaxed and there was a flow of conversation that felt natural.

I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics in August 2013.
Interview Details Not exactly sure when I applied but I would guess turnaround time was not very quick. Maybe three months? Maybe more like 6? Not even sure how I applied, I think it must've been on their own website. I don't think I submitted a resume or cover letter. It was a little tricky to get ahold of someone.
Interview Question – Questions were all very straightforward, ranging from salary expectations (I gave a range) to how you handle difficult patients or coworkers. One interesting question was "have you ever been asked to do something outside of your normal job duty?" and elaborate on that. All questions were open ended and I drew my answers from all my prior positions, not just one in particular. I brought as many questions as I was asked. It was a nice dialogue. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They asked how many years of experience I had and what kind of salary requirements I had. I was not offered the position immediately following the interview. It took a few weeks.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Quest Diagnostics.
Interview Details Because I was referred to the hiring manager through a personal contact, the first meeting was casual over coffee to feel out personality and discuss the Company as a whole, the local market, and the jobs available along with their descriptions/performance expectations. This was followed by online application and the basic HR department phone interview to check the boxes of eligibility, job history, background as well as the hiring process description. The hiring manager called me to describe interview style and refer me to a video to prepare for a product presentation that I would give to him. I then had a panel interview with the hiring manager, his equivalent counterpart from another district, and a HR representative. The interview questions were the basic sort at first, then directed more toward my business plan, application of soft skills to this particular position, goals and contributions to the team and company beyond the job description. Finally, I "detailed" a current product to the hiring manager as the customer. My follow-up communication was by phone and although I wasn't hired for the position I interviewed for, I was offered an equal position with the counterpart manager who had an opening become available.
Interview Question – The most difficult response that I was asked to give was to a statement that although similar in type, this position was much more challenging than the position I had just left and how was I going to handle that when I was used to cruising by... View Answer
