    Interview

    Terrible interview. First she said she thought the interview was at 11. Then she forgot to email me the directions to the place, so I had to drive around looking for this place and calling her (she didn’t answer once). She looked very annoyed and disinterested in everything I had to say.

    Office Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Patterson Companies (Kent, WA (US)).

    Interview

    Got a call and went in next day for an interview. Over an hour interview with the hiring manager and he acted like I was going to come back in to meet employees. Made it seem like I was already getting the job. Got called in for a second interview. Sat waiting for over 20 minutes, only to meet one employee for about 15 minutes and they interviewed me as well. Got a call that they didn't think I had enough experience. Misleading on how they think you are getting the job, was also questioning the respect they had as they had me sit and wait without saying anything. While I was there waiting observing, I noticed many employees acting unprofessional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Patterson Companies (Mendota Heights, MN (US)) in August 2018.

    Interview

    Initially did a phone interview with HR and later with hiring manager via phone then I went in for interviews with the creative team and HR. Things went very well and I was excited to potentially work there. A week later I had heard nothing so I sent an email to HR. I got NO response! Seriously. HR rep can't take one minute to either say "job offered to someone else" or "still considering candidates". a month later and I still got no reply good or bad. I took time off and met with them in person. This behavior is so unprofessional.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Interview

    Prepare for " personality test". They will say " there is no wrong answer" however that's not true. Experience doesn't matter if you do not answer the questions the way they want you to. Hint: don't show your independence, self reliance or leadership qualities. They seem to want managers involved in every aspect of your day ( prioritizing accounts etc) things that rookie reps may need help with. So study up! And good luck!

    Interview

    I was extremely excited when I received a phone call. Had an interview. Felt some of the questions were not relevant, but from doing research a lot of companies are asking similar questions. Interview lasted near 30 minutes or so. I got the general impression they were not interested. A few weeks later I received a rejection letter in my email letting me know they were pursuing other candidates, which…
