    Pros

    Great work-Life balance, Amazing Supervisor, Compensation, Development, and PTO is good. Its a great job if you are a student because the hours, depending on the shift, balance well with a school schedule. They also provide tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    3rd and 4th shift hours make it a little difficult to go out at night. Sometimes it is difficult when you are trying to work with leadership from other departments because they have their own set of goals they have to accomplish and they sometimes bend the policy to do it.

    Pros

    GREAT PAY!! W/ high commission and outstanding benefits after some time of working there Once hired on, there is a great chance that you're going to be there to stay! Job for life!

    Cons

    Lack of management skills from the managers at specific locations Once you leave the company, for good or for bad reasons, it's hard to find a solid job like the one you had with Luxottica...THEY OWN EVERYTHING. Lack of advancement to become higher within the company...promised promotions and raises leads to false hopes and aspirations and dreams.

    Advice to Management

    Work on hiring people from the bottom up, versus bringing in new people without degrees or experience in the field...creates less commotion and uproar with the commission and when there is any kind of advancement.

    Pros

    The pay was great and I loved seeing people.

    Cons

    People bought sunglasses and then returned them complaining about the prices.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Well, tell everyone to step up their game and work as hard as team 6224 in Marketplace Mall

    Pros

    Loved this job. Great pay rate and good commission. Learned how to engage customers easily and felt comfortable doing it. I had an awesome team with me. Really understand and display that they carry quality over quantity products in the store. Had great interactive app on Ipad that customers would use all the time. Even though I no longer work there, I will still be a loyal customer for life.

    Cons

    Really wish the store I was at had a security camera, other than that, no complaints!

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for them, I think mine did a great job

    Pros

    Flexibility with hours, energetic and friendly atmosphere, small team of co-workers enables employee bonding. Great manager!

    Cons

    If you are not a natural at sales pitch, it could be a challenge to meet your weekly goal. Keeping an eye for shop lifters when the store is busy is always a challenge especially if you are by yourself

    Advice to Management

    Great Job at management! I think the the manager at the location where I worked did an awesome job at being at being a transactional and transformational leader!

    Pros

    Sunglass Hut has some pretty amazing perks for employees. Great discount (30% always, 50% occasionally, free eye exams). Usually a supportive and energetic management team.

    Cons

    Some of the company's choices of upper management are questionable. My region has an extremely high turnover both in upper level management and store level management.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management tends to forget how things in the stores operate. There's a constant pressure to perform without any support or understanding of how the retail environment of my mall is struggling.
