If you don'r pass one, you don't move on to the next. Test is a combo of iq type questions, sales questions, and some basic math. Overall not too much of a challenge.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Patterson Dental.

    Interview Details

    Met with the branch and regional manager. Also did a ride along to make sure I would like the job. Each branch is different as even though Patterson is a large company, each branch is ran as if its a small business. So I don't think there is an uniform interviewing process.

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melville, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Melville, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Patterson Dental in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    First step was a phone interview to confirm interest and arrange for an onsite assessment. Next step was to go to the facility and log in to an online multiple stage test which was timed and seemed designed to evaluate your personality and management skills. You had to "pass" this test to interview with the district manager. Next step would have been to travel to company headquarters for a final interview, but I never got that far as the position was given to an internal candidate.

    Interview Questions
    • The online test was the most challenging aspect as there were often several acceptable answers.   Answer Question
