    I worked at Pearle Vision full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, flexible with scheduling. Franchise stores are good b/c you're not dealing with mall hours.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth especially if you are not an optician. Could be extremely busy or extremely slow. Great when busy but if slow the day just drags on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more appreciative of your employees.

    I worked at Pearle Vision

    Pros

    Selling a necessary and high quality product
    Co-workers supportive and caring
    Corporate Volunteers Opportunities that can include travel
    Pays better than standard retail

    Cons

    A lot of product competition with other glasses retailers
    Not a lot of communication about moving up in the company
    Managment receives preferential treatment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an employee, I was not personally interested in moving up the corporate ladder. However, many of my co-workers were and the communication of management opportunities were not communicated until they had passed. Being up front with the employees about their options to better their standard of living would be a valuable management style and could encourage more trust between sales associates and upper management.

    I have been working at Pearle Vision

    Pros

    I enjoy working with my helpful coworkers. Management and coworkers demonstrate respect toward each other.
    We are a busy office, so there is no time to be bored.

    Cons

    We each have the to work every third Saturday. We are currently changing computer systems and have quite of bit of additional training to complete.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our regional Sales Advisor is located over 4 hours away, and is not available in our office for training and new program rollouts as often as we would like.
