    I have been working at Vets Now full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very caring for their staff
    Varied and unpredictable cases
    High clinical standards
    Supportive management
    Learning and career development opportunities

    Cons

    Not really any cons to mention for the company itself, I highly recommend it, but OOH roles are not suitable for everyone. It's hard work, mainly because clients can be very distressed and become very challenging OOH, not quite appreciative of the amount and quality of work VN OOH vets, nurses and support staff carry out, making it stressful sometimes and affects staff morale and wellbeing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the good job and support to your staff!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Vets Now (London, England) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview with the head office recruitment team. The time was agreed so I had a chance to prepare. The question were quite general for the position - the right to work in the UK and other similar questions, as well as specific questions regarding the position (animal restraining and handling experience, customer service experience, etc.). I was successful and had an interview with district manager at the actual clinic. The question were quite similar but i got to know more about the position and i was shown around the clinic as well. At the last stage they invited we to do a shadow shift and see how the clinic works.
