    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Friends Pet Care in June 2008.

    Interview

    Had to make sure prospect is good with and respectful towards animals. Not many requirements for this job other than that, so interview process was not very in depth.

    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.

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Best Friends Pet Care.

    Interview

    It was easy, in retrospect i was not fully informed as to the hardships and difficulty of the job. Pretty standard interview. I did have to wait for a long time and had to read a lot and watch videos. I never even got all my certifications done. Pretty disorganized

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Best Friends Pet Care (Marietta, GA) in April 2008.

    Interview

    They had me fill out a job application and, if I remember correctly, there was a packet with questions to gauge how good a match you would be as an animal care technician and then they interviewed me in person afterwards one-on-one. They ask you really easy question. It's pretty obvious how they would like you to answer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They allowed me to negotiate a bit. I ended up getting paid a little more than some of my coworkers.
