    Pet Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mount Laurel, NJ

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (Mount Laurel, NJ) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Online application. Phone interview followed by face to face. Seems like they were frazzled at the time; high turnover. Felt more like being vetted than a professional interview. The doctor in charge at the time told me she discouraged me from accepting the job because I "seemed so nice." They were obviously looking for someone to jump right in with little training.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (Greenville, NC) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interview process went smoothly. I applied online after seeing a job posting on indeed.com. I heard back from the manager about two days later who seemed very interested in me. She asked my skills, availability, and why I was interested in the job and then we set up a one on one interview. I was actually offered another position at a bank during the week which I accepted, this being said I went to my interview and told the manager about the changes in my availability and asked if she would still want me as a weekend pet nurse. She said yes and we continued on. She asked typical questions about skills, previous employers, how I handle different situations, and then we role played. I believe I won her over with the role play-- I have 8 years of customer service experience with high end clients. Then she introduced me to the head veterinarian and I received a tour of the facility. A few days later I received a call that she wanted to hire me and I would need a background check. Within a week and a half I was being trained.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (Coral Springs, FL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Good interview process. Consisted of an online application. 1:1 interview with Office Manager, then an invite to a group interview. Presentation was given on the company. Then broken into groups, to be observed on team work. Then a panel interview with 3 people: an office manager, a field trainer and a health director. If selected to proceed with hiring, they sent you a online personality/skills/IQ type test. Once completed, a few days later, was called to do a 2 hour observation. At the observation, you observe, ask questions, perform light duties (performed rectal temperature). After the observation, they gave me a drug test form, and I filled out the background check form. I did the drug screen the next day, and was called 2 days later to come back to fill out the new hire paperwork. After that, a few days later they schedule me to attend the new hire orientation which I have yet to start, tomorrow February 1st.

    Pet Nurse Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Daly City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (Daly City, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online. The interview was held in an exam room with the assistant manager and manager taking turns speaking with me. That made it awkward because I knew there was a security camera on me and the monitor is in plain view of all the back of house staff. They asked about my experience and how comfortable I was in a veterinary clinic environment. It was easy for me because I had veterinary experience. I could see how it would be stressful for someone without experience. I spent the majority of the 45 minute interview waiting for them to come back into the room when they were tag teaming.

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital in September 2014.

    Interview

    Initial interview was with HR person and very scripted.
    Second interview was with the regional Medical Director and some other lady. They hinted at a third face to face interview that would take place if they were interested further.
    Generally a long process with interviews taking place on Friday or Monday and having to wait a few days in between to hear back. They did have the curtesy to let you know either way though.
