I've been an assistant for 30 years and used to be a denture lab tech. They take new grads and they do well at training them. The downfall is the lack of pay.
Here at the BC , Minnesota location they pay for your mileage which is worth it. I worked 50 minutes away for training and was paid about .50 cents per mile, which is great !
As a PSR, my "training facility" is at another office until "my home office" opens. I'm here for 4 weeks PSR training, then 2 weeks CSC training. Aspen is paying for my hotel, mileage, and food on top of my hourly pay. I just complete an expense report and I'm paid the following week. Yes, the initial week pay isn't until the following Friday, but it wasn't a deal breaker.
For DAs and front office staff you're thrown into it without much training. It's more a "learn as you go" type of "training" or basically you try to teach yourself the job
Not really. They throw you straight into the job and expect you to figure it out.
