    Animal Care Tech Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Best Friends Pet Care.

    Interview

    I was looking for a part-time job to make some extra income. I figured that caring for animals would be an enjoyable experience, so I decided to give it a shot.

    I submitted a resume and heard back from the manager a few days later. I was pleased by how quickly I received a response. The following week, I met up with the manager for a face-to-face interview.

    The interview process itself was a breeze, and the manager was very accommodating and patient with me. I was also given a brief tour of the facilities.

    The manager phoned me later in the week and offered me the job. I asked what the hourly pay would be and was disappointed to find out that it was too low for me to accept. I had no choice but to politely decline.

    I love animals and can handle even the dirty and less pleasant tasks. However, the amount of responsibility and physical labor for such low pay dissuaded me from accepting the position.

    very friendly, although I'm not sure I would be getting the job. I was definitely overdressed, dress code I'd tee shirts and either jeans or khakis. As a very large indoor boarding kennel, there was a walk through, and the place was very clean for what it was.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Best Friends Pet Care (Silver Spring, MD) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was very easy, the women that interviewed me didn't care and i was over-qualified. They were very easy, basic questions. Difficult to get any wrong, weren't really wrong or right answers. She was very impressed that someone so overqualified wanted to work there and i think she tried to talk me out of the job.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Best Friends Pet Care (Atlanta, GA) in June 2014.

    Ran pretty smoothly because I made an appointment. I was certainly qualified for the position but had to accept the low wages due to my personal situation. I thoroughly enjoyed the extended tour of the facilities and grounds. The actual interview/ negotiation leg of the process took place in the cattery.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Best Friends Pet Care.

    Interview

    After submitting a resume, I heard back within about a week asking to set up a time for an interview. After settling on a time, I came in and met with a group of people whom asked basic questions on previous work experience, availability... the standard interview questions. After going through a tour I was told that everyone who had interviewed would hear back either way. After not hearing back, I called and asked what the timeline was and if there were any changes. They informed me that I was a perfect candidate, however they could not hire me because I was not bilingual, and they needed a bilingual employee.
