    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pacific Dental Services.


    Recruiter was unprofessional & assumed that I accepted the job before I had given any verbal/written acceptance. Gave me a hard time over email saying that she had already declined all of her candidates, paid for a background check, etc. Ended up declining the position mostly bc of the bad taste she left in my mouth, but also the compensation "commensurate on experience". Another recruiter asked me over the phone if i would reconsider if pay was re-discussed, I said yes, and she said she would call me back in a few days. Didn't receive a call so I contacted her again after about a week. Original recruiter emailed me back saying she was "confused" as to why I was contacting the recruiting team again after declining the position. ????? Maybe because your partner asked me if I would reconsider and said she would be calling me back with updates? Overall just bad vibes from the recruiting team at PDS. Bummer bc I was genuinely excited to work at the company.
