It was just okay, was much better before Essilor bought out private company

Customer Service Managertomer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

ProsGood benefits and co-worlers ( Not management ) were all hard working, good people. Team work was essential and everyone there ( management excluded ) pulled their weight and more in the rough economy. Every employee was doing the work of 2= people and not complaining, just trying to do a good jub.

ConsManagement, both middle and upper treated the actual working employees very poorly. They did not communicat the fact they were planning a lay-off and blindsided people, when if one were to quit , they would expect a 2 week notice. No human resource person on site, had to try and handle human resourse issues via phone or email with people in Dallas. There were many false allegations against employees without proof or investigation. Bottom line managemnet wanted big yearly bonuses no matter the cost to the average employee.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe nice, don't think of yourselves as better than those who work under you. Communicate, ask questions and don't always assume you know best. Listen to employees and treat them with respect.. Remember your annual bonus does not matter to the average employee who is living paycheck to paycheck. When you have employees who are willing to bust their butts for you, the least you can do is communicate, and give them SOME respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
