    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Banfield is owned by the MARS organization, and is driven by the 5 Principles of MARS. For that reason, we have a strong culture that all levels of associates adhere to. If you are interested in the veterinary profession, this is a great place to start because of the on-the-job training available in many states. The team is passionate about pet care and wants to offer the best care to our patients. It is very rewarding knowing you helped save a pets life or kept a pet and family together.

    Cons

    Can be driven by numbers, like any corporate organization. Some locations are not as driven by the 5 Principles as others. Long work hours which can interfere with work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more field leaders to compensate for growing number of hospital locations.

    Pet Care Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Rock Hill, SC
    Anonymous Employee in Rock Hill, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for this position after seeing it listed on Indeed.com. A few days later, I received an email from the hiring associate, inviting me to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview went great, and only basic questions were asked (i.e. personal information, greatest accomplishments, schedule, expected pay). At the end of the conversation, I was invited to come in for a working interview the following week. I stayed for about an hour. In doing so, I absolutely fell in love with what I knew about the company, and the position that I hoped to have. The people seemed really nice, and really laid back.
    About a week later, I got an email asking if I could come in for a final interview, where I would meet the head veterinarian. I accepted and prepared the best I could, and even studied the Banfield website, learning the history and values (which they didn't ask about, of course lol). I went to the interview, and it was a lot more difficult than I expected. LOTS of questions to really make you think! Even though it was challenging, I felt like it went really well and sounded really promising! I was told that the next step would be the hiring process, and that I would know rather quickly whether or not I was chosen.
    Almost 2 weeks later, after calling and emailing with no response, I get a company email saying that the position was no longer available. I was very disappointed, as I thought it was a very impersonal/cold way to handle the situation after I had attempted direct contact a number of times. I really would have loved the job.
