    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Western Dental Services (Elk Grove, CA) in August 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online. Got a call a week later from a recruiter to set up an interview. I went in and met with the office manager. She was very nice and has been with them for over 20 years. She didn’t really ask me interview questions just asked what I did during my time as a dental assistant. What type of office I worked in. We just had a conversation pretty much.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Western Dental Services (Sacramento, CA) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I posted my resume on Indeed and Tiffanie Caldwell contacted me, helped me find the closest location and set up an interview for me. The day of my interview I had 3 other interviews and Tiffanie helped me make my decision to choose Western dental by taking the time to explain all the benefits, career growth within the company, and explain the hiring process. She took the time to walk me through the entire hiring process and had answers to all my questions. As having other offers on the table Tiffanie understood that and did not pressure me into a decision but helped me choose the right one with consideration of meeting with other potential employers. She responded to all my calls and emails quickly.
