Client Services Coordinator Interview

Client Services Coordinator
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital in February 2014.

Interview Details – Online application, standard fare. Phone interview with an assistant to the practice manager. Why do you want to work for Banfield, why did you leave your last position, what pay rate are you looking for. We scheduled and in person interview with the practice manager within 3 days. Typical questions. Manager was friendly, knowledgeable and a great representative of Banfield. My experience with her and the CSC on duty just intensified my interest in working for the company.

Interview Question – Tell me something about yourself that is not on your resume. This isn't a difficult question but it is a GREAT opportunity to really showcase something about you that would help the company.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The practice manager thought a different position might make me happier and I agreed to explore it. I look forward to working with that manager in the future though, she was fantastic.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Portland, OR

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital in April 2011.

Interview Details – A few hoops to jump through. Technical screening phone interview, followed by a group technical interview (phone). Then two in-person interviews, first being another group technical, second being multiple groups with personality/environmental fit. Was a bit intense in places with questions being fired one after another, but the groups were personable and open/honest about their views of the company and day to day operations. The questions were difficult but fair, and the individuals were good about leading you to the answer they were looking for rather than just firing, listening, then moving on.

Interview Questions
