    I have been working at Pearle Vision full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    When you work for an independent doctor, you have more freedom to set goals, schedules and treat opticians the right way. Money comes to those who earn it. Ive never been happier at a job and had less stress once I left the corporate world. Patients really appreciate not being treated like cattle.

    Cons

    Corporate stores like Lenscrafters, America's Best, Sears, etc. have made optics seem like it is an easy profession. Filling prescriptions, diagnosing problems and customer service have gone to the way side by just giving away free stuff and refunds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees to do your job as if you weren't going to show up the next day. Everyone should be licensed whether the state requires it or not.

    I have been working at Pearle Vision full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was an independent franchise, so the work environment was small time and not corporate feeling. Very relaxed atmosphere where everyone just did their job. Almost like a small family.

    Cons

    The pay ceiling is low, but that should be expected in a retail store such as this. There is not much to learn, so it did get boring. No real advancement opportunity.

    I worked at Pearle Vision

    Pros

    one of the reasons to work for pearle vision was their pay and benefits structure. i paid for college while working there. on top of a competitive hourly rate for sales associates, you get commission on things you sell. most everyone who comes in for an eye exam will end up buying glasses, so most of the work is already done for you.

    Cons

    one of the downsides of working for Pearle Vision now is lots of changes with it being bought by cole managed vision, who also owns lens crafters. all of its promotions are the same, except lens crafters are known to deliver within an hour...a competative advantage of Pearle Vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    senior management needs to do more company events where stores in the same area can meet and greet each other since sometimes they reach out for help from store to store.
