How to Get Hired

We asked Owens Healthcare 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?

We are all about WOW!, our customer service initiative! We look for employees who meet the minimum skill level required ( ie- Pharmacist or Pharmacy Technician's license), from there we interview for "soft" skills. Is the candidate a go getter? Do they set a priority on making things right for the customer? Do they seem engaged in our conversation or are they just here for a job? We want employees with a passion for delivering great service and feel a great deal of satisfaction when the job is done right. We aren't too much into egos at Owens, we expect an excellent level of WOW! customer service internally as well as externally. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

We want dedicated, hard working and personable people to work for Owens. A candidate with a smile, sunny disposition and is smart really catches our attention. 

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
