    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Applied online and heard back within a week. You can apply to multiple locations and they email you if a position fills. Practice manager will call you and set up an interview time. I was interviewed in one of the pet exam rooms and the manager just asked a bunch of standard customer service questions. Most were situational or just general questions about your abilities and personality or goals. If the practice manager likes you, you will have to set up an unpaid observation and possibly interview with district managers.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (Cambridge, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Very basic interview. First the manager called me and asked me some general questions. After that she asked me to come in to see the practice and meet everyone.
    When I came in we just chatted and she told me about the company and asked me about myself in a very informal way. Showed me everything and asked me to stick around to observe for half an hour. It was very relaxed and friendly. I wish all interviews were this easy!

    Recruited by a friend that works for the company. After speaking with a recruiter I had several interviews and completed a day of hospital observations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital.

    Interview

    I applied online to pretty much every Banfield in the area and about 1 to 2 weeks later I received a phone call to ask about the pay range and schedule an interview.

    It was an overall pleasant process. I arrived 30 minutes early and a few moments later the Practice Manager greeted me.

    The questions were straightforward and listed on paper, and was asked to answer with detail responses of possible.
    The basic behavioral questions.

    Afterwards I asked a few questions on my own and thanked them again for interviewing me.

    It hasn't been long after the interview but I really hope I get an offer! If not I am happy I at least got in the door. It's the field of work I really want to be in and I've been applying for years.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (South Florida, FL).

    Interview

    what they advertised was not true as far as hours worked number of pets, weekend work, etc. they painted a very rosy picture of what work/life balance would be but since working for them, I feel that it was bait and switch. Many of the other doctors in this market are unhappy and feel the same.
