Terrible Company to Work For
Sales/Frames department (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 24, 2014
Pros: they will hire you guaranteed because of high turnover
Cons: most people get fired fast, those who survive are constantly looking for other jobs, terrible management, bad salary
You will be hired at a low wage, with no benefits, if you want benefits you have to pay into them and they are not typically worth it. Management is the problem with this company, it is awful. They move you from position to position without asking, and they never give you a chance to settle and do a job well. If by chance management likes you, the boss – more... will move you to other problem areas and expect you to succeed again, if you do not it is entirely your fault and you have failed the company. Loyalty is never rewarded. – less

Beware of this company!!
Manager (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONMay 17, 2013
Pros: jobs are easy
Cons: no overtime pay, no structure, family drama, guilt trip
They will use you to do whatever outside of your job, from construction work to delivery. Often keep you working overtime without pay. Terminate you before the 3 month probation so they don't have to pay you benefit. Upper management is a big mess. It's a family own business and you should always expect their drama. The company's focus is its franchising – more... business instead of optical goods. They will often blame you or guilt trip you for things that you're not responsible, nor even heard of, just to prolong their payment term with suppliers or satisfy their franchises. – less
