    I really enjoyed being an optician at LC

    Former Employee - Eyewear Consultant in King of Prussia, PA

    I worked at LensCrafters part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling is available. They sell chic, good quality products and the employee discount can even be used on clearance stock. The nicest glasses I own came from LC. I learned a lot, but mostly on my own. It was a great place to work while I was in optometry school.

    Cons

    There is a wide variety of management styles among GMs. Some are not very friendly to scheduling needs where some are awesome. There is the usual propagation of ineffective managers who stay employed in spite of their lacks. The amount of commission is very low and gets lower if the store fails to make sometimes ridiculous sales goals (at least when I was there we were expected to make goals based on a strong economy when it had clearly tanked).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being inflexible in scheduling and such only hurts the employee/employer relationship. Divisive managers who try to play employees off one another to make them distrust one another are destructive and should not be kept on.

    Pros

    The only good thing is our benefits package

    Cons

    Everything! The company sets out rules, but if the customer calls corporate they get everything for free and then store teams are reprimanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on corporate and give money back to stores...who make the money for you
