    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Pacific Clinics (Arcadia, CA).

    Interview

    In the interest of fairness, my interview was too many years ago to review. In addition, not a single person that I was interviewed by works at this company any longer. I cannot speak to the competency of current interviews; however, I do know by personal experience that they have an exceptional recruiter.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Clinics (Rosemead, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process includes an overview of the program, a meeting with the current interns, and an individual interview (with three interviewers). The individual interview is not very intense. It feels like a conversation about previous experiences. It helped me review what I have done and make connection with some of the cases they presented.

    Mental Health Therapist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Clinics.

    Interview

    Very unorganized. Clinical supervisor even stated there was a high turnover rate which is never a good sign. The interview process felt unprofessional, as a saw some of the employees passing by looking very unhappy. The job duties for the mental health therapist position was beyond the scope of what a mental health professionals should be doing. I thought to myself I wouldn't accept the offer even if they gave it to me.
