    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.

    Franchis Business Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Pearle Vision.

    Interview Details

    The process took a while to get started, it was multiple weeks after submitting before I received a call. Once started, the process went quick, phone interviews (3 total) over 10 days. After the last interview, they then went radio silent. I attempted follow up after two weeks, reaching out directly to them, with no return phone call or email message. Being a larger company, I would've expected a polite 'Dear John' letter to terminate the process, or some sort of communication to inform me where we were in the interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • I was surprised how focused the conversation became on managing tough conversations, and having to cite frequent times when I had to make unpopular decisions. I understand that's part of any position, but that took up a good part of the interview dialogue.   Answer Question
