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

Pros

The culture of the company is so strong, it has taught me to not only value customer service but to live it. Everyone I work with is my customer. The job & pay are average but the vast company activities make it well worth it. I look forward to every event.

Cons

With so many people loving the company, there is very little turn over. Moving up is hard to do because very few opportunities come along. I've been trying to move positions for a while & not gotten any.

Advice to Management

View your employees potential. Help them move if they have expressed interest to. Moving up is hard to do.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Company cares about its employees. Subsidized meals. Most co-workers are nice and intelligent. They encourage training and other factors to help further your career.

    Cons

    There is a lack of communication between departments. It gets pretty hard to do your job when other departments do not understand what it is you do, and even after explaining to multiple people multiple times, push back keep happening. There are also a high level of ego's.

    Advice to Management

    Allow SME's to do their jobs and prove themselves.
