I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VCA Canada (Calgary, AB) in Aug 2020

Interview

I interviewed during covid, so the first interview was obviously over the phone. There was then a second interview at the clinic. They made sure to bring out a spare mask in case I didn't have one, and gave me a tour of the place.

Interview Questions
  • Questions were all very straight forward customer service style questions, and also making sure the work schedule would be a good fit. It is a 24 hour clinic and they have requirements of being able to work any of the shifts to be considered full time.

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at VCA Canada (Calgary, AB) in Jan 2019

Interview

Interview process was exhausting. The company EMAILED to arrange a phone interview. Phone interview went great and progressed to a in person interview. The in person interview took over an hour, seemed to go well and was even introduced to the VP whom the interviewers brought in to meet me. However, extremely poor follow up. Did not hear from the company for over 2 weeks. Emailed following my interview to thank the interviewers and then followed up multiple times during the following weeks during which time the position was still showing as open on various job sites. Finally heard back from the company in the 3rd week where they apologized for not EMAILING sooner and the position had been filled. The professionalism and approach to the interview process was appalling - candidates should be called to arrange interviews and should definitely be notified following an interview. Would not interview with this company again.

Interview Questions
  • Typical interview questions - Tell about yourself, Strengths/weaknesses, etc.
