Carol Zeas

How long were you on the team and when?

April 2016 - January 2018

What responsibilities or titles did you have when you were there?

Optician, Fitting patients in the best choice of lenses and frames. Filing Insurance, Dispensing, Some edging in the lab, Checking in jobs, Helped plan and execute the 2nd annual Trunk Show, Assisted the front desk for about 4 months, updating the displays when new frames arrived, and helped with frame selections with frame reps.

What did you learn while you were there?

I learned about contacts. But I will admit, I still am not the best at filling for the contacts or the contact fits. I learned a few things in the optical world, such as trial framing and how important that is to keep from remakes.

What are some things you wish you could have known before you joined the team? If you had known, would it kept you from joining?

Was let down on how employee conflict was handled.

If you could describe the office culture during your time there using only 3 adjectives, what would they be?

Efficient, Comfortable, Modern

What did you most enjoy about your time in the Huffman Family?

The small private practice- family environment. The personal touches given to patients, goody bags. Lunch and Learn and pot lucks. 😉 Best of all was the employees.

What caused you the most stress during your time there?

Pay. However, In the beginning of my time here, it was adjusting to a supervisor.

What are some ways that you think that the management could improve things?

Having a rotation of supervisors do the Feedback Friday. It would also give different opinions/feedback given. And it would be a better check and balances.

How did the job match your expectations? In what ways were you disappointed?

It is what I expected from an optometrist office. I was disappointed to learn there wasn't a bigger commission for Opticians.

Would you recommend this company to a close friend as a good place to work?


What was your ultimate reason for leaving?

Pay was a big reason. Ultimately, I felt that this wasn't the best fit for me.
