    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Dental Services (San Antonio, TX) in November 2013.

    Since turnover is rampant, anyone with a pulse can get hired. I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter who grossly exaggerated what to expect. The face to face interview is a joke.

    Application

    I interviewed at Western Dental Services (San Mateo, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was easier than I expected it to be. First I was interviewed over the phone by the recruiter. Then I was contacted by the manager to come by for a one-on-one interview. Majority of the the questions were about my experience in sales, ability to work in a fast passed environment and my customer service skills. Then the managing doctor joined in. He explained my duties and the office/company expectations. He also asked some questions about my experience working with patients. He explained that the priorities are the wellbeing of the patients. Then I was told that I will be contacted to let me know what they decided.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Dental Services in February 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online, and within a few days I got as call for an interview. I was taken into an office where the interview took place within 5 minutes of getting there. Two people interviewed me, one of which was true branch manager. They were both friendly and outgoing. The interview was simple, they had me walk them through my resume, and the basic questions about strengths, weaknesses and why I am a good candidate...

    No negotiation, they talk about what you want for pay during the interview and they determine what they feel is the right pay in your offer letter.
