How to Get Hired
We asked Benco Dental for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
When you join the Benco Family, you commit to giving your best effort every day- we start by looking for this characteristic. Beyond education and prior job experience we expect prospective associates to be consistently effective at their job and focused on a high caliber of quality. Key characteristics include integrity-earns trust and respect of co-workers through their actions, resourcefulness-creatively finds ways to solve problems, self-awareness-understands personal strengths & weaknesses, team player-does what’s best for the company, customer service focus- external & internal and curiosity-continuously questions and learns.
We also look to our values: We earn & cherish our sterling reputation every day. We assume positive intent, always. We empower great people to do great work. We give back to the communities & families we serve. We begin each initiative by asking, 'what does the customer want?' & we improve each process by asking 'why' again and again. And.....we smile!
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
As a prospective associate the key to gaining Benco Dental’s attention is to demonstrate our Benco Values. They include having a track record of volunteerism and charity work; having a history of consistently working to improve oneself and the organization worked in; having former managers as references who enthusiastically endorse the person's character, work ethic and accomplishments; having numerous examples of teamwork & collaboration with co-workers; having a list of accomplishments from former jobs; having a customer service mentality.
Benco receives over 20,000 applications on a yearly basis. As a result, it's also important to accurately and completely finish the employment application including any pertinent information (such as a resume/references), putting your best foot forward. Prior to being interviewed, do your homework-know Benco. Bringing along prior work examples is always an added touch of personalization!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Over the past year we have had a continuous focus on our Inside Sales Department. With the initial success this Department achieved, this focus remains throughout the foreseeable future.
We are also continuing to increase our base of sales associates across the United States to focus on our consumable supply sales growth and support the future business needs in growing regions, such as the West Coast.
In addition, all other departments supporting our sales and service growth continue to recruit heavily.
