    Great pay, but with no real benefits or consistent management or business practices.

    Optician (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsEvery location is different. Most locations are privately franchised and have very different atmospheres. As a current employee of a local franchise, I can say that I am extremely satisfied with the freedoms that I have with each customer. If I want to make up a deal, I can! --- However, the lack of consistency is also a huge downfall of the company.

    ConsSome locations are so unorganized that it carries across to patients and customers that they are in a different franchise all together. Some (mostly corporate locations) can sometimes be too sales driven and lacking in patient care. But corporate stores and franchises don't share any information with each-other and it makes even the smallest warranty a mess. IE: When you have a warranty - you should be able to go from one store to another and be serviced the same - for the same price. Depending on which Pearle you're at - you can find the same frame at four different prices, the same lens at four different prices, and the same contacts at four different prices.

    And also with the individually owned practices, most offer little or no benefits. I was actually told to apply for state funded health care.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would advise consistency. When you go into a Starbucks, you can get a cup of coffee that tastes the same no matter where you go. With Pearle, it's night and day depending on the associate you get. I wish there was more direction from our corporate office...

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    regular sales job

    Sales (Former Employee)
    Etobicoke, ON (Canada)

    ProsFlexible hours, low stress job.

    ConsEven though i was making top sales in the region every month since the beginning of my employment there, my first performance review was "satisfactory" only because I didn't have seniority. I thought it was supposed to be performance review rather than seniority review.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
