    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kool Smiles in January 2017.

    Interview

    It wasn't much of an interview. They asked what experience I had and what I knew how to do. They explained their office, company, and about their patients. I was not impressed with their office. It wasn't very nice and it was in a bad part of town.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I was not impressed with their office. The office manager said that they had a 50% no show rate, which says a lot about the office.
    The manager also said that she would "try" to pay me as much as my last office did, which I assure you was not too much.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Kool Smiles.

    Interview

    1. Apply
    2. Phone screen where they ask you some basic questions.
    3. Face to face interview
    In my case, the office manager didn't know what he was doing. When I completed the interview, he said that he would call back in two days if he decided to move forward; he called 10 mins later.
    During the phone interview, I told him how much I was looking for but he was unsure about how much they pay. I went in for the face to face interview and that went well. I got a call from him the next day, and he was very rude! He asked about my salary again even though he had a copy of my salary history attached to my resume. He questioned me about why I wanted that amount, and eventually got an attitude and hung up in my face. The bottom line is that they definitely don't pay enough for the amount of work they want you to do.

    It was an easy process, but very regimented. They are very thorough have a lot of corporate paperwork to get through to vet candidates. This is a good thing considering they deal with heal care for children.
