Nice mix of retail and healthcare in a friendly mall environment
Optician/ Lab Tech (Former Employee) – Pleasanton, ca – 11 July 2012
From what I remember about this job it was fun to work here. I spent a lot of time learning all aspects of Lenscrafters and Eyexam 2000. The staff was willing to train me and gave me opportunities to showcase my sales skills.
good training methods for new hires, and people who don't know anything about the field
Licensed Optician (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 26 November 2017
Depending on the location, it can be very busy. Always short-staffed for opticians.You'd be lucky to take a proper break without having to be called back out from lunch break. The pay is decent. You'll do well if you can sale while dispensing and checking jobs and taking measurements all while calming customers down who have been waiting for over an hour... all at the same time.
any position (Former Employee) – Ontario – 20 November 2017
Product is great and fun to deal with but the upper management and district managers are terrible. Company will deny raises based on thefts of part time associates. Company also likes to terminate positions for management and not allow those associates after years of being there to drop down they simply say "we terminated your position and we have no where to put you." Very unprofessional higher management.
