Interview processThe interview started with the normal questions of: why specsavers, why optometry and what I can add to the team. They aren't a big fan of model answers which sound robot. They like to see that you have personality and really mean what you are saying.
I was asked about conversion rates, given scenario questions of angry customers, non tolerance areas and what to prescribe to patients, tests on visual fields and the retinal pathways and asked my ability on contact lens practice.
Teamwork was a big part of the conversation and my CV helped due to having been part of many teams in the past. Overall specsavers wants a hard working student who can have a slight authority to work solitarily as an optometrist however also has to be a team player.
Most difficult questionThe most difficult questions were about conversion rates, what could be improved in Specsavers, dispensing and non tolerances areas would be hard to answer however I read up on them before the interview.
Interview tipsApart from the normal dressing smart and preparing the usual predictable questions, from experience of 3 specsavers interview where I successfully got all 3 jobs, I would say:
Know the background
Know how to dispense
Know what a conversion rate is and what you would do if yours is low and your colleagues are high
Know your non tolerance areas with regards to refracting patients of different ages
