    Lab Tech Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Visionworks.

    Interview Details

    First step is to apply online or to go in store and grab an application. When they are actively hiring, you should expect a call within 3 days. If they aren't currently hiring, expect a call a few months later asking if you are still interested in the position. A background check will be done as well as a drug test. The process will last maybe a week or two after the first interview.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Visionworks.

    Interview Details

    Telephone & in person interview. All standard boiler plate stuff. Nothing unusual or unexpected except the animal question but the interviewer was clearly reading off a script and filling in boxes. Don't worry, they need you more than you need them.

    • What animal would you want to be if you could? :/   View Answer

    They claim "the union" will not allow negotiations but then you find out later they lied.

    Optometric Technician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Visionworks.

    Interview Details

    Interview was ok. But after five or six days, general mgr. of my store had not gotten back to me, so I called her. She seemed annoyed that I called, simply to ask if she had hired anyone yet. Finally she called me after almost two weeks and told me I was hired but I had to wait about six more days until I was able to start the job! I had desired to start several days earlier, as I needed the income a.s.a.p. and I was excited about the new job!

    Negotiation Details
    I was left with no room to negotiate, but I believe the hourly wage was fair.

    The wage was more than I currently made, so I accepted. The person who speaks first in wage negotiations loses.... Always ask for top dollar. The worst they can say is no.
