Staff recognized the talent & respected the way I did things even if it wasn't how they would do it.
Frames Consultant/Sales Associate (Former Employee), Barrie, ONApril 21, 2014
Pros: healthy mental work environment
Cons: not enough hours
The Pearle Vision store located in the Georgian Mall has an awesome staff where customer service still reigns! The values and work ethics of the staff was a good match for me. I was the only employee that was not an optician but everyone helped me, without hesitation, when I had questions to further understand the business. Management was respectful – more... of others and she was strong in her position. The hardest part of the job was the computer system which was temperamental. The customers were great and I enjoyed servicing them. In my 25 years of retail experience, it was the best job I ever had. – less

I am looking for a job that is more in my field of study, but I will hopefully be able to stay on part time at Pearle Vision once I have another job. I love what I do, and would recommend this job to motivated individuals.

Worst job I've ever had
optician (Former Employee), portage, miAugust 3, 2014
Pros: compensation was okay, after commission
Cons: literally everything else
If you work at this store, you are not allowed to have anything else going on in your life. Management is a joke, as in it barely exists, except when it comes to the schedule, which is always changing.

Training is nonexistent. You basically have to teach yourself everything, and then it's your fault when you do something wrong because nobody ever taught – more... you how to do it.

No consistency in any aspect - schedule, basic sales tactics, anything.

The company is a joke too. No concern for the well-being of its employees. Pays almost no attention to anything that's happening at the store level.

If you hate cold-calling, you'll hate "pre-appointments" - a tactic that is degrading for the employees who have to make the calls and obnoxious to most patients.

Pay raises and promotions basically don't happen, whatever you're hired in as, anticipate being at that pay and position for a long long time.

Advice to the company: stop turning everything into a power play, actually do your job as a manager, actually treat your employees like people and then MAYBE you won't have such high employee turnover. – less

Productive but stressful workplace
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee), Melrose Park, ILJune 26, 2014
Pros: discounts
Cons: hourly pay, open on sundays
A typical day at work included many duties, multitasking, doing screenings, and insurance authorizations while only getting paid minimum wage. Co-workers often argued between each other, there was a sense of favoritism with management which increased the tension.

Great place to work with wonderful co-workers
Sales Associate (Current Employee), Eau Claire, WIJune 23, 2014
Pros: the friendship i made with my co-workers
Cons: the hours
A typical day working at Pearle Vision, there was always something to do. There's always a task that needs to be done or someone needs help finishing a project. Because there is so much to do there is a lot to learn such as; lens material, pretesting, adjustments, selling, prices, and organization. Doing all these tasks can be fun with the co-workers – more... that I had, they helped make the day go by fast. Even with the wonderful co-workers there was some down falls. The hours that we have to work I disliked. Working the late hours and having a family at home always stressed me out. – less

If you have a good manager, it is a great place to work.
Optician (Former Employee), Des Peres, MissouriMay 21, 2014
This can be a good place to work if you get a place at an office that has a reasonable manager. The problem is they expect you to help out other offices with managers in place that are not very qualified.

Optometric Technician (Former Employee), Totowa, NjMay 15, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of screening patients, answering high volume calls, scheduling patients and updating patient records in the system. Management was very straight forward and pushed us to do our best to reach our stores goals. My co-workers were great team players and very driven to contribute to our stores bottom line. The hardest part – more... of the job was trying to handle a situation on which I had no control over such as, receiving shipments later than expected date. The most enjoyable part of the job was aiding our first time patients with installing their contact lenses. – less

Rewarding and Challenging
Customer Service/ Receptionist (Former Employee), Hampton, VAMay 13, 2014
Pros: free classes to gain more knowledge and insight
A typical day at the optometry office can be very hectic and
fast- paced then other days are slow. Regardless, it was a
very positive experience to handle the needs of others concerning
their eye health. For most an eye exam is an annual process, for
others without health concerns or issues it is every two years.
I gained a lot of knowledge and insight – more... in the field of optometry.
It was a very rewarding and challenging profession with new
advances in technology with regard to the eyes. – less

Productive workplace that allowed obtaining new skills
FULL-TIME OPTICIAN (Current Employee), Norman, OKFebruary 19, 2014
A high-volume business for retail and medical office environment. I learned to multi-task and be a team player to overcome the obstacles of a high-volume and high-demand environment that was at times understaffed. Obtained many great skills from cross-training with both retail and medical office environment. The hardest part was feeling under-appreciated – more... and sometimes under-compensated for the expectations demanded which were inconsistent and new consistently, but adapted quickly to meet them. Great co-workers. – less
