    Lab Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN (US)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at POLARIS Laboratories (Indianapolis, IN (US)).

    Interview

    After the application process, I met with HR, the Lab Director, and Lab Manager. They asked quite a few typical questions you would expect for the position if you are well prepared. They were extremely friendly and it was more of a dialog than one sided questions. They expressed a large interest in being sure that I understood what would be expected of me and what I could expect from the company. It appeared to be a great place and the team that I talked with were very knowledgeable and had a drive make improvements and be successful. I would love to work at Polaris.

    Lab Technician Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The hiring process was... minimal.Process begins with a 1 minute initial phone interview, followed by a personal interview the next day. Polaris desperately needs to maintain its revolving door culture and isn't in a position to deny anyone employment. In fact, about 1/3 of job offers go unaccepted here. After a brief questioning an oral drug test is performed, and I assume a minimal background check is also conducted - maybe. Interviewees are often informed of a job offer within 1 week of interview

    Interview Questions

      Tell me of previous work history.   Answer Question
