    Had one interview with the General Manager in an exam room at the store 1 week after submitting application. Interview was very laid-back. Standard interview questions. Asked about optical experience and education. Nothing unexpected.

They followed an interview form basically asking 1 question from each of the blocked areas, taking notes to pass to the next person for 2nd interview.

    Reception, Third Key Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingsport, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kingsport, TN
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Visionworks in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a resume online and was contacted by the Territory Director for the area for an interview. I was sent to interview with a local Store Manager, not the TD. I was asked all of the general questions about my education and work experience. I wasn't asked any specific questions about things I would do in certain situations or how I would react to certain scenarios. I was simply asked about my current job and duties, my education, and what I expected my hourly pay to be. It was also explained to me what the different positions in the store were such as Receptionist, Eye wear Specialist, Optical Assistant, Contact Lens Coordinator, 3rd Key, Retail Manager, & Store Manager. I was also told about positions in the lab that were open such as Lab Tech & Lab Manager. I quickly realized that the people working for ECCA are not licensed and they have no education as far as the optical industry goes (except for the Doctor). It is more of a retail establishment than a medical office. When commission was mentioned to me I realized that only Eyewear Specialists make commission, which can result in over $10,000 extra $$$ per year, although I wasn't told that at the time. If you are interviewing with ECCA and you want to make the big bucks, make sure you get hired on as an Eyewear Specialist or Third Key/Retail Manager with your main job description being TO SELL GLASSES. After the Store Manager interviewed me, he sent me to interview with the TD, I believe because I had asked for more money than the position normally carried. The interview process was the same with the TD. It was more of an instruction session about how the company worked than an interview.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you know about this company and why do you want to work for ECCA?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I asked for and received $10/hour as a Receptionist because I was currently working as a Store Manager in a different retail industry. Apparently that was the going rate they offered to Third Keys at the time and I still got that because I asked for it. I would say at this time, ask for $9 to $10/hour and see what happens if you have no management experience; if you do, ask for more. Commissions play a huge role in your salary so try to negotiate an Eye wear Specialist position, which can gain you over $10,000/year in commissions, although they may not tell you that in the interview, trust me, I made that much in commission last year on top of my hourly and it is very possible.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Visionworks in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was to the point, quick. Manager asked specific exploring questions on experience in the field and personal customer service experience. I was glad they needed a part-time optician. With my previous experience in school with optical wears it was easy to give a good impression. It was also highly emphasized on how quick you can learn the sales skills.
