    I interviewed online - interviewed at VCA Antech in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process was good. It took a few weeks,but wasn't bad. The managers were pretty enthusiastic and were good about getting dates and times set up. The returned my calls right away when the hiring process started and the interview was long but covered a lot of ground with the business. At the end, you can ask the interviewers questions too.

    Distribution Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at VCA Antech.

    Interview Details

    I found the offer on careerbuilder, but initially it was for a data entry position. When I got there they made me feel very welcome, but there were a lot of people there for interviews for different positions, which made me very suspicious about their turnover rate. Human Resources was pleasant. I found it was a little too easy to get this job, and there was a reason this position was empty because it is a very tedious and time consuming position. I was doing the work of 4 people.

    Interview Questions
    • They didn't ask that many questions, which should have been a red flag. They wanted a body to do menial work, but they get science applicants who are into the science laboratory aspect and not packing samples half the time.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Don't take a job there. You are treated like a slave.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at VCA Antech in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interview was simple. Showing up in person to apply instead of just going online made a big difference (I assume)

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing to speak of. The only question I remember being asked was what I knew about the company, and not much was scrutinized as far as that goes.   Answer Question
