    Director of Real Estate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Western Dental Services in July 2017.

    Interview

    I didn't go through the process. I applied online and was surprised at the hoops one must go through to forward a resume. After filling out the online form, I had to take a personality test (ok, fine, I understand that most companies want to do this). However, the next part of the online process (before I was allowed to send my resume), required me to list my references with extensive amounts of information on our relationship.

    Another requirement was that they send a letter directly to the references right away. Seriously, I have a problem with that!! I don't want my references to be bothered with a ridiculous online form -- the letter stated that they had to click on a link and complete the questionnaire online, stating that it is approximately 5 minutes long. The whole process, testing and reference letters was completely pre-mature and extensive. No wonder they are still looking for someone for this position ....

    Technical Support Tier II Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orange, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Western Dental Services (Orange, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Employer contacted me via email asking me a few questions regarding the salary expectation, time for phone interview and such. I replied with the answers along with questions of my own but employer didn't even answer my questions but instead sets up a phone interview, which was odd. He called me kind of late for the phone interview so at this point I was seriously considering backing out but just went forth with it anyways. He asked me a couple of technical test questions, work history, certification, etc. He explains what the job entails and a bit about the company. The interview lasted for about 30 minutes, which could've gone on longer had I not intervened. I asked him multiple questions regarding the environment, turnover, culture, etc. He just kept ranting about employees withholding information and not helping others out due to job security, almost as if he going through with it himself or it occurs there often. At the end of the interview, he proceeds to lie to me by saying "I'll check with my manager", which is code for you'll never hear from me again and I told him that "I'd think about it." which is code for you'll never hear from me again as well, which is fine as I wasn't going to accept an offer if one was made and it also made me wonder what else was he lying to me about.

    I had a feeling that this job had a high turnover, micromanage, low pay, metrics, customer surveys etc when the employer told me the opposite. This job was basically a call center job and need less to say I wasn't interested in the job anymore.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Western Dental Services (Orange, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume thru Recruiter and it was an interview process of about 4 hours onsite with 5 individuals from CIO to Managers. It was mostly about Personality traits and how the candidate is able to fit within their expectations. Technology wise they are a bit behind and there is not much an experienced Engineer can get out of this Job. If you've got +A personality you will get this role . Their IT Team are not very knowledgable and there's been a high turnover over the years. First level of Management were recently hired .

    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Western Dental Services (San Jose, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I got to Western Dental about 5 minutes before my interview incase I needed to fill out an application. I ended up waiting 30 minutes to interview with the business manager. While the interview took about 30-40 minutes. Probably one of the weirdest interviews I've ever been too, even the business manager said it would be. The business manager focused a lot of cons in the company oppose to another interview talking highly about their company, but was told that we should know these things before starting.
