I have been working at 1-800 CONTACTS full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

A lot of opportunities to advance your career, they are the leader in their industry, they are so very flexible with your life outside of work, they have awesome events throughout the year for associates and their families, they treat employees very well, there;s an on-site cafeteria and gym, benefits are pretty good comparably, the list goes on and on...

Cons

Raises come annually which is great, but it's not much more than 3% to cover inflation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I would search internally for top talent and help them jump-start their careers so they don't leave for more money to another company.

    Great company to work for. Their vision "We take care of our associates, so they take care of our customers."

    I have been working at 1-800 CONTACTS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Onsite cafeteria, film festivals, summer events, parties, recognition, the list goes on! The company is growing with glasses.com which has given more growth opportunity in the last year than we have seen in the 6 years I've been here and it will continue to grow.

    Cons

    Sometime hours can be long but we undestand the vision and sometimes it's required. They try to make sure we are recognized when major projects are accomplished and we try to have work/life balance whenever time allows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think with the new higher vacation benefits it will be easier to maintain a work/life balance but encouraging your associates to have that balance will help in the long run. Giving them "time away" when they are off as much as possible, meaning, limit emails and phone calls while they are off.

    I worked at 1-800 CONTACTS as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was only there on a 3 month contract, but the benefits that the company offered were incredible. On site gym, cafeteria, health care on first day of employment. I had hoped to stay on at the end of my 3 month term but there was not a position at my level open.

    Cons

    no cons that I can think of now

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none
