    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Visionworks (Dallas, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty standard 1st interview with a General Manager of a store talking about specifics of your resume and expectations of the position your applying for followed by a second interview with a territory director with more general outlooks on future with the company and pay expectations. After that they send you off for a drug test and a background check which can take up to a week to hear back from.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Visionworks (Baton Rouge, LA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I was called by the DM to interview for the position. It involved taking a math test and a personality test. Interviews now require an interview by a district manager, a higher member of management, and sometimes human resources.

    Interview Questions

    • What would the company gain by hiring me?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was told what the position pays. It was ridiculously low for the work that is expected for general managers and the volume of this particular location.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Visionworks (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    First step is to apply online or to go in store and grab an application. When they are actively hiring, you should expect a call within 3 days. If they aren't currently hiring, expect a call a few months later asking if you are still interested in the position. A background check will be done as well as a drug test. The process will last maybe a week or two after the first interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Visionworks (Hauppauge, NY).

    Interview

    Telephone & in person interview. All standard boiler plate stuff. Nothing unusual or unexpected except the animal question but the interviewer was clearly reading off a script and filling in boxes. Don't worry, they need you more than you need them.

    Negotiation

    They claim "the union" will not allow negotiations but then you find out later they lied.
