I’m currently the leaseholder at the optometry office in Costco located in Dublin/Plain City and I need someone to work the front desk and pretest patients for their eye exams on Saturdays.

If you or someone else in the club is looking for relevant part-time work, please have them reach out to me through email at this address or apply through Handshake. I’d be happy to discuss the position further with anyone who is interested.

Thank you for your time!

Scott Hanes, OD”
