    A high-quality company with great principles but a tough value proposition.

    Pros

    The people at Corporate are mostly really high quality. I like how buttoned-up and organized operations generally are. Burkhart has really stuck to it's values over time in terms of focusing on the higher-quality products and a holistic approach to improving their clients' dental practices. Definitely a family business feel, which I like, especially at HQ in Tacoma. The Supply Savings Guarantee really works, and it's magical when a dentist just clicks and gets why Burkhart is different.

    Cons

    At the end of the day it's retail sales of mostly commodity products to customers who seem wired to look for bargains. The winners in those scenarios are mostly going to be Burkhart's big competitors Patterson and Schein. I also think management has been too timid in enforcing high standards and holding people accountable. This isn't the highest-paying business, and it's hard to get new people up to speed quickly, but bad attitudes have been allowed to pollute the air for others.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce high standards. Recognize and reward those who smile while doing the hard work. Don't allow bad attitudes even from AMs and techs who have been around a long time.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Burkhart Dental (Roseville, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Messy. Illegal questions asked. Operations manager appearedsleepy and uninterested. They ask outdated and irrelevant questions. Interviewer asked when I was available then basically said they needed someone sooner, after saying they to would like a two week notice.
