What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Pathway Vet Alliance?
Ask the staff a lot of questions when doing your working interview about their protocols and how they feel about work. Ask the managers a lot of culture based questions and what they do to ensure staff happiness. See how the answers line up. Research the company's core values because it will be asked what you think of them or reference them with the why do you want to work at pathways question. Overall, try not to be too nervous about the interview, everyone is kind and above all they really want to make sure you will be happy and thrive there.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make Pathway Vet Alliance a better place to work?
I would be more transparent as a manager. Pathways' core values push for open, honest and respectful communication between all staff, I don't feel that management follows those values to the T. In fact I feel that most rumors or gossip stem from the lack of honesty and room left to make assumptions on their part. However, between staff interdepartmentally those communicative values are respected and practiced.
The fact that there are board-certified doctors in every department. It is truly amazing to be able to ask any sort of question to (most) any doctor or tech and be taught in a kind way. I don't feel like I'm talked down to or stupid and I have learned so much there in my short time. If you want to learn then they want to teach you.
The high prices and how that makes clients feel. It's really hard presenting estimates that you know are overpriced in general and especially in comparison to other hospitals in the area.
Clock in, do your job and go home. We all take our jobs seriously and give it all the effort we can but we still laugh a lot and I very much enjoy my coworkers.
