Marketing Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Henry Schein.

Interview Details – The Initial Human Resource screening was done in person which I think is much more helpful for both parties to see if it's a "good fit". The 1st and 2nd interviews were very professional. I would say they asked the standard interview questions type questions, but done in a more conversational way. I was pleasantly surprised at how positive the interviewers were of the company and the culture. My first impressions were very positive.

Interview Question – "Why do you want this job?" An excellent question, but I didn't expect them to be so direct.   View Answer

Supply Chain Analyst Interview

Supply Chain Analyst
Melville, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Henry Schein in December 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process for this position took place during my employment as an intern in another department within the company. Within the space of two days, three interviews took place along with a series of meet and greets. The primary focus in each of these interviews and meetings was to determine whether or not the candidate is a good cultural fit. My perception was that qualifications, situational questions, & behavioral questions were all subordinate relative to items relating to cultural fit.

Interview Question – Who are you outside of your life as a professional?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – I was able to negeotiate up about 4% from the initial offer.

Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
American Fork, UT

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Henry Schein in January 2012.

Interview Details – Initial interview where they weed out undesirables, then a second interview where they will basically give you a good indication of whether you will be offered the job (and where you have some leeway with negotiating salary). HR extends the official offer within a day or two.

Interview Question – Theoretical questions where they put me in a situation where I'm talking to an angry office (gave different reasons) and how I would deal with that. Also asked how I deal with stress.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They said that the salary was based on experience but starts at 11/hour I argued that because of my degree and work experience I was expecting more. I asked for 15/hour, we settled on 13/hour.

Supervisor Interview

Supervisor
American Fork, UT

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Henry Schein.

Interview Details – Referred by a friend because of their referral bonus. Interviewed with department head, took a tour of the facilities, then met with HR to discuss pay. After initial meeting they called my references then called back and offered me a job. They didn't give me much info on the day to day tasks but did promise lots of upward mobility which I generally found to be incorrect

Negotiation Details – Set in stone. They have a rate and they won't budge

Information Technology Interview

Anonymous Employee
Melville, NY

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Henry Schein in September 2010.

Interview Details – Human resources did the first interview 1:1 which was a informational interview. Asked couple of question on resume and work experience. They were gate keepers before the people you had to impress. Than I had a 1:1 with the boss. He made sure I knew what he wanted me to do on a daily basis. Pushed me tell him how I did work in the areas he was interested in. Was very easy going and talkative. Was looking for skeletons in the closet.

Interview Question – There was no real difficult or unexpected question it was more what you did say and not say. It seemed to me they were waiting for you to prompt them in a direction you did not want to go.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Do not negotiate up front. They are at best cheap to start. They know what they want have multiple candidates for most jobs and let you know that. From what I hear it take a couple of years to get comparable or better pay then your peers.
