A Day in the Life of a Park Slope Eye Optician

A Day in the Life of a Park Slope Eye Optician

Posted by Dr. Bazan, Optometrist and Owner of Park Slope Eye

Starting off our “Day in the Life of a Park Slope Eye Employee” series is Yasmin from the Park Slope Eye Optician team.  Based in Park Slope Eye’s Brooklyn New York office, Yasmin talks about how she helps patients and clients find incredible eyewear.

What did you do before coming to Park Slope Eye?

I managed a Solstice Sunglass boutique in Beverly Hills, Ca

How did you first hear about Park Slope Eye and the job opening?

Through social media!  I saw the add on Craigslist and responded via Twitter.

What’s your title at Park Slope Eye and how long have you been with the company?

I am the head Optician here and have been a member of the team for 4 months.

What comprises a typical day for you?
Everyday I get to help ensure people end up excited over their incredible eyewear and ensure they have an awesome experience. Part of my daily grind is making sure the lab is doing the best job of grinding your glasses and that our frame gallery is beautiful.

What’s the BEST part of working for Park Slope Eye?
The opportunity to help grow and grow with this company as it is still new. I also love being able to just do what I do I do best.  I also enjoy learning new things.

What is your favorite perk at Park Slope Eye?
Every time we are noted for going above and beyond, really exemplifying something extraordinary, we get some cold hard cash!  To see some examples check out our Yelp!

What has been your favorite memory at Park Slope Eye?
We took a trip up to Boston for a conference on how to deliver 5 Star customer service.  The whole trip was an adventure, especially the crazy drive home!

What separates Park Slope Eye from other places you’ve worked?
I always say until I came here I was a spoiled optician. Even though I was a manager, things were always set up to be done a certain way (very black and white). Here, a lot of time it is up to me to come up with the solution and/or make the corporate decision. It’s a huge challenge,but the results are very rewarding. Dr. B has a standard for a level of service that’s unparalleled. What sets him apart is that he REALLY has a passion for his craft, and helping people unlike anything I’ve seen in quite some time.

Finally, what would be your one piece of advice for someone interested in becoming an Optician?

You have to be very versatile and wear a lot of hats! Customer service, administration, lab work, and the clinical parts are all equally important. You HAVE TO love what you do, or it can become a bit overwhelming.
