Do I get paid for a meet and greet?

No, allied health assistants are not paid for a meet and greet. 

The initial session is a 30-minute to 1-hour, uncharged and unpaid meeting with the client and/or the client’s family. Think of this session as a two-way interview.

If you ran a business, you probably wouldn’t hire someone without ever having met them in person. The same can be said of clients and their families. They want to meet you and discover whether your personality will be a match for them before they commit to working with you long-term. 

At the same time, you wouldn’t want to start working in a position you knew nothing about. We give you an overall picture of the client’s goals and needs, but we can never explain all the fine details. Just as we want the client to feel like you’re a good match, we also need you to feel comfortable, supported and excited about starting with the client.
