Ratings are professionals’ reputations on Stynt. It is in your best interest to earn high ratings (4+ stars) from jobs. High ratings greatly increase your chances of getting hired and can lead to repeat jobs with past offices. Your role as a temp is to seamlessly fit in with the office’s staff to deliver the best patient care possible. You need to be aware of how you are being perceived by the office and by their patients (they provide feedback to the office on your work). Happy patients often equate to a happy office.
Tips on how to get high ratings
Arrive to jobs with enough lead time
Synt recommends professionals arrive at least 15-20 minutes before jobs. You may want to arrive with even more lead time. The reason is to allow you to connect with the office before patients arrive. It is time for to establish points of contact, ask questions, find out where equipment is located, and generally find out how you can help the office. You are welcome to call the office in the days leading up to a job to gather the same information however it is not required.
Your appearance is extremely important. It contributes to making a patient feel confident they are in the hands of knowledgeable professionals. We recommend scrubs and/or lab coats for the back and business casual for the front. Please arrive to jobs fresh and well-groomed. Refrain from wearing strong colognes or perfumes as those around you may be allergic. Open-toed shoes (OSHA) and heels are not recommended.
Be professional at all times
You must be professional at all times especially in front of an office’s patients. This is particularly important when communicating with the office, with their patients, or communicating with the office and/or patients in front of each other. Limit your cell phone use. If something comes up that demands your attention please excuse yourself and discreetly explain this to the office so you are not viewed as being unprofessional. The office knows to provide breaks on full-days jobs. Please remember to clock out for breaks such as lunch because they are are unpaid times when you work through Stynt.
The little things count
Try your best to make the doctor and their office look great in front of their patients. Stynt encourages you to be a team-oriented professional and make patients feel welcome and comfortable at all times. Arriving early/before patients arrive will help you understand where things are when you are assisting the doctor or working independently with their patients. This is also an opportunity for you to find out how a doctor likes having certain things done like making a temporary crown or taking x-rays. Ask the office if they need help with anything during down time between patients.
Remember to thank the office
Thank the office for the opportunity to work with them and their patients at the end of the day. This promotes general goodwill and you have earned the personal satisfaction of knowing you made a difference and helped others. Please remember working with them is a privilege, not a right.
