    I worked at Luxottica full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people and a fun atmosphere. Looked out for the people.

    Cons

    Started worrying more about profits with no regards to the people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go Back to putting your people first so that they in turn want to put the customers first.

    I have been working at Luxottica

    Pros

    I love working for sunglass hut because you are not limited by many rules, it allows you to be creative and make the best of your judgement. Also if you love to sell, this is your place to shine.

    Cons

    I absolutely hate the management, very unstructured and very unprofessional at times, its sad because the job could be so much better! They care a lot about making numbers, not a lot of clientling

    Pros

    Positive upbeat company. They are always trying to improve their process. The perks of sunglasses were nice.

    Cons

    Constant change in management was difficult. The biggest struggle was working inside of a Macy's store. Sunglass Hut and Macy's did not always see eye to eye

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Contest for Managers was great but it does not encourage the staff to work harder because we did not win the trips or money

    I worked at Luxottica part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the time it was great working there. I loved dealing with the customers, doing paperwork, and looking at the newest sunglasses that were sent in every week.

    Cons

    Definitely having numerous of managers and hardly any training. The regional manager/managers were never enthusiastic about making the goal for us to get commission. Probably because they were never trained. Also, working by yourself for 8 hours and sitting was breaking the rules, was a little much. With back problems already and during slow times, the days got long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping managers at the location was hard. I went through 3 different managers during my 4 month time there at Sunglass Hut. Definitely need to train their employees/managers more. The only reason why I knew so much is because my brother worked there before me. If he wasn't there to help me with each step, I would have been completely lost. The Regional Manger was so hard to get ahold of, and when there were new employees or problems with the computer/system, we would have to call numerous of times to get a response.

    I worked at Luxottica full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn and most of it is fun. Fun meetings and fun employees plus a 500$ certificate at the end of each anniversary year.

    Cons

    Most shifts are single coverage (if you're a small store like I was). That gets pretty boring. Theft was a major problem yet all product was constantly left out. Had unrealistic standards about goals and money to be made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get realistic about the theft issue! Also be up front about how much money we are actually making.
