    Distribution Clerk Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    The interview process was the most elaborate I have undergone. The interview lasted an hour with both the hospital manager and regional manager present. I was asked question by question what I would do in certain situations and additionally some very generic questions.

    Interview Details

    Rude. Rude, rude, rude. With interviewers that look through you and don"t give the slightest hint of a smile or human warmth and a very cold, mechanical vibe to the entire process. Wish I hadn't come in.
