    Lab Tech Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The hiring process consists of filling out an application and/or submitting a resume online via the company website. As with many other companies, it helps (although not imperative) to know someone on the inside. In some cases they will already know the candidate they intend to hire, but you may get an interview anyhow. The interview is more of a tour of the facility and general conversation than an interview. I would suggest doing some research and coming up with some questions that would lend the interviewer to believe that you have some experience or at least some insight as to what the job entails.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Intertek in January 2017.

    Interview

    Company first contacted me a month after I submitted my application. Asked if I was still interested in the position and if I would like to schedule an interview. The email was clearly a copy and paste form email where the agent inserted the job title and other information with missing or awkward spacing/punctuation. I noticed at times the wording of the emails became slightly less than professional in vernacular from what I expected. I scheduled a phone interview for the next day and received confirmation as to when and what number to call. My appointment came and went and I was unable to contact the "talent acquisition", left a message, and tried again 20 minutes later and still was not able to make contact. After 24 hours with no word I was no longer interested in the position. Too many red flags here, a company of this size should not be having these issues.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Intertek (Houston, TX (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The manager was very nice and straight forward. He mentioned that working in the laboratory is very fast pace and mentioned this several times. He wanted to be sure that I was going to stay long term because people usually work there to get their foot in the door, learn what they can, and then quit for better offers.
