Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

ALL current openings are posted on our jobs site,; you must apply online by creating a profile and uploading a resume.

How much time does it take to fill out an application?
For most applicants, the process takes between 10 and 30 minutes. If you have your resume saved in a Word or PDF format, or you decide to apply via your LinkedIn profile, the time it takes to fill out our online application is significantly reduced.

Click the “forgot your password?” link. You will receive an email with instructions on how to reset your password.

I applied to a position and am not sure where I am at in the process, how can I find out?
Due to volume, we are not able to individually follow up to confirm receipt of submitted information or provide other status updates. Your email confirmation indicates that your application has successfully reached the hiring manager. Candidates identified as finalists for the position will be contacted by a Patterson representative.

I would like to update the original information I submitted on my profile, how do I do that?

Assessment Process

I have been asked to complete an assessment for [x] position; what types of questions will I be asked and how can I prepare?
Review the information provided on the Assessment Process page. Additional information regarding assessments in general can be viewed at

I completed the assessment/s required for the position I applied for; will I receive results or feedback?
Due to the volume of candidates Patterson receives for our open positions, we are unable to provide individual feedback regarding the results of the assessments.

I completed the assessment/s for a position and applied (or plan to apply) for another position of a similar title or job type. Do I have to take the assessment again?
We will use one assessment result for each unique job you apply for. For example, if you apply to multiple Territory Sales Representative positions you will only be asked to complete the assessment once for each similar opportunity you apply for. See specific position and assessment descriptions below: If you're not moved forward in the selection process for that opportunity, there is a six-month waiting period before you can retake the assessment. This process is automated, so when you are eligible to re-take the assessment for a position you apply for (6 months later), our system will prompt you to complete the relevant assessment again.

I had technical issues completing the online assessment and am now unable to access the assessment. How can I get back in?
Contact our Human Resources department at or 1-866-234-2165.

  • Multiple interviews or call-back interviews
We encourage you to ask the Patterson representative that you are in contact with to describe the process that is in place for the particular role you are interested in.
