Quick ECCA employment guide

Optician (Former Employee)

Pros- If you are morally troubled to sell someone with money troubles eyeglasses that have well over a 1,000% retail markup, at least ECCA has among the lowest prices in the industry.
- After 90 days of employment, employees receive one complementary pair of glasses with all the goods of your liking once per year.
- Good workplace to earn income during the summer months before school starts.
- They will be flexible with your schedule.

Cons- Part time hours in the off season, which is about any time after the first month of a new school year, ranges between 0 to less than 20 hours per week. I averaged 15 hours.
- Many more details, details, and details within details to remember than your typical retail workplace with similar pay rates.

Advice to Senior ManagementI recommend increasing the pay rate to give ECCA employment more of an edge in the retail industry.
