The employees are like family
Licensed Optician (Former Employee), Emeryville, CAJanuary 27, 2014
Pros: flexibility, opportunity to move into management, positive environment
Cons: short breaks, training, # of hours limited
TV in the break room, management gives wonderful negative feedback and positive feedback, but not enough sales training. The training you get in sales comes from being on the sales floor.

Is not a bad job.
Eye Care Advisor (Former Employee), Vernon Hills ILJanuary 6, 2014
Cons: bad management no benefits.
My mainly job was to set up reservations. I learned how to set up tables depending of how many people were in the party. Management is bad is a self own place. Is hard to deal with a self owner who doesn't respect their employees. It was fun to see all different races come to one place.

Overall okay; not great but not bad either
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Overland Park, KSDecember 6, 2013
Pros: easy work pace, decent products, great hr
Cons: pay, hours
I was a lab technician with almost ten years experience. I was told that they had a corporate grid on pay. Overall this is a super corporation that lives by underpaying its quality employees while tenured employees had less expected of them.

Good company to work for
Sales Supervisor (Current Employee), Springfield, NJDecember 3, 2013
Pros: 1 pair of free eyeglasses per year
You will find that a lot of the workers for LensCrafters have been there for years. They don't really give their associates a reason to want to leave. The pay is decent once commission gets factored in, that is, if your store does well that week. Has room for advancement for those who seek it.

High demand retail environment
Licensed Optician (Former Employee), Columbus, OHNovember 20, 2013
I found the Regional Manager to be completely oblivious to anything optical based which in-turn made her "sells plans" be more based on how much money was going to be collected from each customer and how to increase that number oppose to what was going to be best for the patient which is what Licensed Dispensing Opticians are suppose to do. The co-workers – more... were enjoyable and easy to get along with. I learned much more patient and how to work a digital lab. The hardest part of the job was be able to multi-task with 4 or more patients/customers when understaffed due to cutbacks. Most enjoyable part of the job was the production of the lenses. – less

Good place to work
Lab Technician & Consultant (Former Employee), Portland, ORNovember 15, 2013
Can be a fun environment to work in. I worked at 2 locations. I loved my first store. The management and team members were very supportive. Lots of team selling and coordinating with lab technicians to provided customers with a superior product and experience. I've also worked for locations that lack a good support structure and team atmosphere. It – more... really depends on the individual location. – less

Eyewear Consultant (Current Employee), Round Rock, Tx.October 2, 2013
Pros: fun and exciting environment. hourly pay + commission!!! vision plan is great as well!
Cons: fall season is very slow & health care benefits vary...
A typical day at work would be to meet, greet & welcome the customers. Build relationship's with customers. Make recommendations, Process the item's purchased through our net computer system. Congratulate & Thank the customer for their purchase. I've Learned my skill could be used for further goals.
My Co-workers are Amazing!
There really is no hard – more... part of the job, you just have to be self pasting and multi task very quickly, I enjoy it very much.
My most enjoyable part of my job would be building relationships with the customers, to where they come back looking for me. And also, being able to tell, that i did my deed, and
knowing they were 110% satisfied with the help that i offered them, & to also make the experience fun and exciting. – less
