    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Banfield Pet Hospital in February 2018.


    I saw the job listing for a veterinary assistant on Indeed and I went to their website and filled out the application. Exactly one week after submitting my application I got a call from the practice manager wanting to do a phone interview that lasted about 15 mins. She seemed to like me so went ahead and scheduled an in person interview a couple days later. My in person interview lasted about and hour and I was asked 15 questions most of which I needed to give real life experiences. After the interview I was given a quick walk through of the hospital area and again she seemed to like me so she told me to come back the following day for a 2 hour observation. At my observation I was not allowed to work because it was for the sole purpose of seeing how the hospital was ran and to see if the current employees liked me. When I left I was told that I should hear back the following day with their decision. The following day I got a call from the PM and she asked me how my observation went, I told her I enjoyed my visit and was very interested in the job. She told me everyone else liked me and offered me the position. I can't start for another two weeks while my background check, and my paperwork get processed and they order my scrubs, name tag, and xray badge. I had only ever worked for a private clinic so I was not used to the extensive interviewing process but it seems to be Banfield's standard to ensure they hire the best employees they can.

    Interview Questions
