    I applied online. I interviewed at Smile Brands (Simi Valley, CA (US)) in January 2020.

    The hiring and interview process was pretty quick and straightforward. I was contacted by the Regional Dental Hygienist recruiter via text in late January. I was scheduled to come in for an interview five days later and a few days later I received a job offer.

    Registered Dental Hygienist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fayetteville, AR (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Smile Brands (Fayetteville, AR (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Went well. Interviewer was nice. All questions answered. Spoke with one of other hygienist in office. Interviewer said she would be hiring someone soon because a current hygienist was moving away in 3 weeks. I emailed her a week after interview and she responded that she hadn’t made a decision yet and was still interviewing. I emailed again after hearing nothing not even a rejection after waiting 3 more weeks. I still have not received an email or notice back from the office as of today’s date.

    Senior Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smile Brands (Irvine, CA (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    Spoke with recruiter that was kind of awkward and not conversational at all. One question after another, making it difficult to connect. Did not get the feeling she was trying to understand my background - more or less running through the motions.

    Accounts Payable Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Smile Brands (Irvine, CA (US)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    The interview was rather odd and I had an off balance feeling about working at Smile Brands.
    After speaking with the A/P Manager I was dragged through the offices and looked at the people in the cube farms. No one looked happy. One person in A/P actually looked up and appeared scared. No one smiled and the atmosphere was depressing. The CFO was pleasant and out meeting very short.

    Human Resources Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Smile Brands (Irvine, CA (US)).

    Interview

    The process consisted of a phone screening and then a live interview. During the interview, I was advised they have been looking to fill this position since May 2018 because they are very "decisive", which actually seemed to be more like “indecisive” if they can’t find a single candidate to move forward with in 8 months. I got the feeling they were apprehensive to turn over any control because they could out perform them since they had been leading this team for 14 years. They mentioned they like to have fun several times, which is great but it appeared to be a distraction for them. Other than them answering thier cell phone during the interview, the interview went great and her questions were straightforward. I left feeling confident I’d move to the next stage. I was notified they were not moving forward with me because they received many great candidates with industry experience, which was never mentioned in the job ad or the interview process as being a requirement. I soon realized this was just a generic excuse they give people when I saw the re-posted ad a few days later. I felt it was a complete waste of time for a position they have no real intention of filling, and only using these interviews to get fresh ideas from other HR professionals for free.
