Answered - Veterinarian Assistant (Former Employee) - Chicago, IL

Report answer

My process took less a week, I interviewed for the position on a Thursday with one supervisor, my working interview was the following Wednesday, received a job offer the next day - Thursday (today!).

My steps were: In-personal interview, working interview, and received my job offer the day after working interview.

I'd also like to note that for the working interview, which is a 2hr volunteer shift, you have to provide your own scrubs.


Report answer

After you drop off your resume, it takes about a week or so for management to respond and set up an interview. They will then set up a working interview in the next week. After your working interview you'll have to contact the hospital and remind them how much you would like the job. Be persistent.
