Payroll was just a job until you can find a better one
Payroll Clerk (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – August 21, 2018
It was a job required many hours and hard work, with no rewards. Very controlled not allowed to talk to talk to other employees just work. HR allowed other employees to make fun of you were older or not Spanish
Treatment Coordinator/Biller/Asst. Office Manager (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – August 14, 2018
They hire a lot of employees with no experience for low wages. I feel their interview process should be more thorough and carefully thought out in order to determine who is the right hire for those available positions.
Dental Hygiene department is run by peope who are not licensed RDH's
Registered Dental Hygienist (Former Employee) – California – August 8, 2018
Hygienists are harassed and turned into super assistants. Managing Doctors and Associate Doctors do all the cleanings with production attached to the treatment. They are trying to ruin the hygiene market by lowering hourly rates for new hires as well as a horrible 20% production bonus on everything over 1,750. When the national average for hygienist is 1,100 a day.
Registered Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – El Cerrito, CA – August 6, 2018
We all have heard horror stories about Western Dental and yes it’s true. Dirty and unorganized team. The DA’s don’t really do anything but hold the suction. I’m an RDA and when my coworker told me to do it because I was an RDA .......HELLO!!!!! That’s like one of the first things you learn.
Software Engineer (Current Employee) – Orange County, CA – August 5, 2018
The management just want to make money off of the patients and their employees. The perqs are horrible. Not enough vacation time and health benefits are horrible. For a dental company the employees pay regular price for even dental work.
High Volume Corporate Recruiter (contract) (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – July 31, 2018
The demands are ludicrous. The goals are outrageous. in the 4 months, I was contracted 4 recruiters quit. Worse place to work for stress. Very unhealthy work environment. People work beyond hours and still, the work never stops. 60 reqs+ per recruiter.
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – El Cerrito, CA – July 26, 2018
This place is terrible and you won’t grow. People are jealous all the time if they see that you are good or if doctors prefer to work with you. They talk about you and later act like there are your friends. It’s full of DRAMA! The management is poor and does not treat people right. Literally the only people that get listen to are the ones that are “close” with the manager and that translates to butt kissers. They can’t see you be successful because they will make sure they throw as much dirt as they can to not make that happen. HR is no help too... I asked for a well deserved raised and they gave it to other people except me and told me they weren’t giving raises because the production was low.
Customer Service Associate/Cashier (Former Employee) – Temecula, CA – July 12, 2018
Although I learned a lot while working at Western Dental i would not recommend this business to anyone. The company is more for their benefit as to the employee's benefit, will work you hard and never acknowledge your hard work. Offices focus more on hiring within.
Registered Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Santa Maria, CA – July 11, 2018
Very busy with a lot of cultural differences and language barriers. Similar to a clinic setting with lot of low income patients. This was the perfect place o perfect and hone my skills. The exposure to the lab work was awesome.
