Unbelievably unorganized

Lab Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Pearle Vision full-time for more than 10 years

ProsNice career in a demanding market.

ConsNo future in this business for an eyeglass manufacturer. Unless you own the business you`ll always be working for the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementWith the introduction of Luxottica to the company the true spirit of Pearle Vision has been stained and dropped in value and respect from customers and employees.
Luxottica brought horrible management skills with their mentality. Hiring inexperienced people to manage experienced people makes no sense and it`s offensive.
Low unmatched pay for experienced personnel in high demanding industry is offensive and disrespectful to the employees that have been in the business for most of their career length.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

No Upward Mobility

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
Grand Rapids, MI

I worked at Pearle Vision part-time for more than 5 years

ProsFree glasses every year. Managers works around your schedule

ConsMinimum wage with the promise of commission however, if commission is not met depending on sale you will make the base pay. There were pay cuts in the year 2008 when employees did not meet their reviews.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen hiring for managerial position please consider employees already with the company.
Please consider raising the pay raise with the elimination of commission

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

underpaid opticians

Optician (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Pearle Vision

ProsI can't really say there are any. If your a part-time employee, the manager is very flexible with scheduling. Good workplace for a college student. The doctors are the best.

ConsBoss favors women and treats male employees with very little respect. Employees no call no show and still have jobs. Employees with no experience get same rate as employees with multiple years. Part-time employees have the upper hand. Absolutely no room for advancement. I've seen employees undergo two years of productive employment with out a raise. Some employees are rude and belligerent, which consist of burping, farting, pretending to throw up, talking about hardcore sex acts.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf there was a competent form of hr there would be trouble

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Worst Experience in my 30 year career!

General Amanger (Former Employee)

I worked at Pearle Vision full-time for less than a year

Prossalary was good, although bonus was taken away after I was hired !

ConsOwner of the franchise was a micro manager, she redid everything anyone did, She used to slap my left hand on the computer in front of customers because she wanted me ti use my right hand! She also made the doctors cry!

Advice to Senior ManagementChill out! You spend alot on money on salaries, trust that your people can do the job!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
