    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Aspen Dental in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was called about 2-3 weeks later to come in for an interview with the office manager. Interview was at 10am but didn't get called back until about 40 minutes later. There was another girl waiting also. When I finally did get called in, after the other girl went, the manager seemed very busy and not interested in anything but explaining the job description then getting back to her own work. She barely asked any questions and then said they'd be calling back for second interviews in the next few days. I was never called back which was crazy because I never got a chance to really say anything to begin with. The girl who "interviewed" before me was in and out in 7 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aspen Dental.

    Interview Details

    What was advertised in the paper was not exactly what was described in the interview. There were two different positions being filled and the interviewer kept bringing up things from both jobs. It got to the point where I wasn't sure which job I was there for.

    Interview Questions
    • Just the fact that I was being asked about two different jobs when I was not interested in one of them. Very confusing and frustrating experience.   Answer Question

    Regional Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Aspen Dental.

    Interview Details

    Directors and Territory Vice Presidents paint a very pretty picture about being a Regional in this company. They tout the fact there is an extensive training program that requires dedication to travel to NY & back to your training office. What they do not tell you is there is a lot of gossip about the newly hired staff at a corporate level. The trainers, directors and Territory VP's sit on calls and talk about their new hires like they are cattle. The job is sold to you as they are on a mission to give America a healthy mouth but the bottom line is the bottom line and they want to know how you are going to drive sales in a medical culture.

    Interview Questions
    • Basic interview questions. Very scripted around have you ever had to lead a team to how do you overcome objections. The interview itself is simplistic. They do more talking then listening.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Wages were sub par for a Regional position. You need to be a strong negotiator for yourself. Ask for more vacation time or a signing bonus. Once you are in you won't see much monetary growth.
