Human Resources

Human Resources helps provide benefits and other services to our employees and recruits outstanding employees to fulfill SCO’s mission.

Just as the college seeks to recruit the best qualified students, SCO’s Human Resources Department strives to find committed employees willing to use their talent and skills to fulfill our mission. Check out our Career Opportunities page linked below to see when opportunities for employment arise.

SCO Career Center


At SCO, we seek to employ those who demonstrate alignment with the institution’s core values. The college’s friendly and inclusive atmosphere has a family feel to it and we are committed to fostering an environment where our employees feel respected and valued.

Those who join the SCO team recognize what makes the institution a leader among optometry schools. For example, SCO has been named a Top Workplaces Award recipient by the Commercial Appeal for a number of years. The college has also been recognized as having the best benefits in Memphis based on survey results of employees.

Beyond competitive wages, SCO offer employees the ability to balance work and life through generous Paid Time Off policies and 18 observed paid holidays each year.  Employees also enjoy an expansive array of company-paid and voluntary benefits, such as health, dental, vision, life insurance, short and long-term disability, a 403(b)retirement plan and a flexible spending account, subject to applicable waiting periods and co-insurance provisions.
