I applied in-person – interviewed at LensCrafters.

The hiring and interview process was very laid back and consistent of your basic interview questions. The interview took a few days as you will have to take a basic skills test. Overall it was pleasant.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at LensCrafters (Austin, TX) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Submit a application to the store and got a call for an interview pretty soon after background check cleared. Took less than a week. The interview questions were all mainly about how you are as a person and not technical at all.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at LensCrafters (Grand Rapids, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Sat in the back with the lab manager and talked about my past work history and how that could be applied to a job with this company. It was for a part time position. Apparently all the other reviews were pretty spot on about this company trying its hardest not to hire full time. Training period would be for three months at 15-20hrs and after that 15-30hrs.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at LensCrafters (Harrisburg, PA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Dropped off a resume and within a week had an interview scheduled. Not sure what that says about employee retention, buuuuut... The fact the interview was so easy never led me to believe some of the employees were spawn of Satan.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing. Management looooooooves to hear themselves talk.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Was told a starting wage and that was that.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at LensCrafters (Paradise Valley, AZ) in December 2011.

    Interview

    I filled out a resume in the store and got a call back about a week later.
    The interview was very laid back and my future boss asked questions corporate had written down on a list. I could tell he thought they were kind of silly while he was asking them.
    I then had an interview with the store manager, and basically she just talked to me the whole time. All I really had to do was nod and agree with her.
    I took a drug test (they pay for it), and got a call from them to start after they received the drug test results.

    Interview Questions

    • It's hard to remember since it was a while ago, one was something along the lines of ... "Describe a time you went above and beyond the job requirements" another was something like " Explain a time when you were very frustrated at work".   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There's pretty rigid pay scales set by corporate so there wasn't too much of a negotiation. But my bosses saw that I had been making more at my previous jobs than the starting level pay there, so they bumped me up to an intermediate level halfway through the pay grades till I took my Certification test, (which is the highest pay you receive as a lab technician after you pass your certification exam).
     My understanding of how the pay works at LensCrafters is first you make minimum wage(ish) till you learn how to operate the Surfacing side of the lab. Then once you are competent at that you get a pay raise. After you master the next step ("finishing") you get another pay raise. By the end of that process you are somewhere around 9$, (which was close to my starting pay). Then after I got my certification test I was bumped up to 10.25ish. But it took me about 6 months to pass my certification test, and I think that is pretty fast compared to usual.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at LensCrafters in January 2009.

    Interview

    I walked into the store and asked for an application, and whether or not they were hiring. They were swamped, and gave me a form. It included a questionnaire, as well as a call-in pre-interview review. It was all very easy, very normal, and very similar to every other application I had filled out previously.

    Interview Questions

    • The most unexpected question was to raise my right hand. The job requires knowing left from right, and they had previously hired someone who had major difficulties keeping the two separate.   1 Answer
