Hiring & Training
This section of the manual
contains the operation forms we use when hiring a new employee. We
recommend checking with your staff to see if they know of anyone that would be interested in the position you
are looking to fill. We have found some great candidates that way.
Be selective when hiring
and make sure the candidate is a good fit for your clinic. As apart
of the interview process the candidate interviews with the manager first. If the candidate is someone you are interested in, partner them with a
therapist and have the candidate experience some of the procedures.
Then allow time for the therapist to speak to with the candidate about what the job entails and answer any
questions they have. Finally we have the candidate observe therapy
to see what a session is like. Then the manager has a follow up
conversation with the candidate to see if they are still interested. Also be sure to conduct a functional visual examination for the applicant to
make sure that they are visually competent before hiring them.
These are some very simple ads we place
when using online newspapers etc…..
This is a list of questions the manager
asks the candidate when they are being interviewed. This gives us
an overview of who they are and helps to determine if they will be a fit as a potential vision
