    Practice Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital.

    Interview

    Interview process was thorough, but went quickly. The day after I submitted my resume I was contacted by a recruiter. The next week I spoke with the recruiter who asked basic questions about my skills and experience and a couple behavioral questions. Next step was an interview with the field supervisor two days later. Same format as recruiter interview except with more behavioral interview questions. Third step was a 2 hour clinic visit the following week hosted by the Chief of Staff. Fourth step was an interview with the P&O co-pilot, who asked more behavioral questions that were getting at leadership and management skills. Final step was another clinic visit, but this was because the field supervisor wanted to meet me in person because they weren't able to be there during the first clinic visit. The field supervisor was very friendly and very open and transparent about the challenges facing the particular clinic I would be working in. Two days later I received an offer for the position.

    Management Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (Henrietta, NY).

    Interview

    Had to go to another hospital to speak to several other managers and doctors. I also had a phone interview which was largely similar to the in-person one. Nothing too hard or special about the process overall.

    Interview Questions

    • Really they just asked a lot of rote, derivative questions any job would ask. There was many scenario based questions too which, if you've never worked in an environment like that, might not make sense. Overall though there wasn't anything different asked.   1 Answer

    Vet Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital.

    Interview

    The initial interview was a good experience. I was interviewed by the shift leader and one of the associates who would provide a second opinion on me. They made me feel welcome from the beginning and really seemed interested in getting to know me. They took turns questioning me (each question requiring more and more thought and depth) I let them know that I don't have any prior clinical experience but that didn't discourage them. They informed me that they're a teaching hospital so I chose the right place! Towards the end, they let me know I had a strong interview but still had others to consider aside from me.
    I got an email a week later to set up my work interview.
    The work interview was great as well! I shadowed a couple of girls and they navigated me to different sources of information they pass out to clients so I could learn from there. The work interview was just for me to get a feel of the environment and see if I still want to work there. It just made me even more motivated to be there ! I got another email one week later extending the offer of the vet assistant position :)

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital (Saint Louis, MO).

    Interview

    After being hired a second time, I had moved and cane back to the area, I didn't have to interview because I knew the manager. Since the manager was a friend of mine we basically just chit chatted and caught up on old times. Granted, this was a decade ago and things have changed now.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital in September 2017.

    Interview

    Slow and inefficient recruiting process. Recruiter would forget to put meetings on the schedule, etc. They will court you and promise the world, and then drop you flat. They do not honestly respect the candidate. Seem very disorganized.
