Have to learn optic knowledege. Also, how to adjust glasses and explain to guest what lenses would suit them best. Explain to guest their insurance and their out of pocket expenses. Receive glasses and contacts. Assumble glasses and call guests in a timely manner. Book appointments for the doctor. Reach sales goal everyday. Hardest part of the job is dealing with rude customers, and multi tasking a hundred things at once.

Supervisor (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 4 January 2018
Management SUCKS! Do not work there! Pay SUCKS too! No reward for top SALES! No loyalty to employees who put in the time to this company. New employees make the same as someone who has been there a year or more.
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.
