I have been working at LensCrafters part-time for less than a year

Pros

My bosses are very flexible on my schedule. I am a full time students so I only have time to work on the weekends. All my co-workers are very friendly and fun to work with. Pay for me was a big step up from my previous fast food job. As of Jan 1, 2014 they changed the incentives program. I started in early December so I can't really say if the new incentives program gives more or less money in bonuses, but my co-workers say less. Working in the lab is fun. Most of the time its pretty laid back. There are slow days where I mostly clean up the lab. There are busy times though. The computer training was good. There is a lot of computer training but once I did it I felt really comfortable working in the lab.

Cons

I've been at LC for about 4 months now. Just a few negative things I have noticed. The computer system is horrible. The computers constantly freeze and are non responsive. I can't even do my certification training because the computers are so bad. I don't get much recognition for working hard. My boss will tell me every once in a while. Not that big of a deal. I know I'm doing a good job even if no one tells me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Tell your employees they are doing a good job and reward them.

    Great - If you don't mind negative commissions, and hours being cut.

    Pros

    The hours are nice, you're never there past 9 pm.

    Cons

    Management can be a bit condescending. There is no real training aside from videos. Hours are cut in the spring. I've had commissions of a few cents, after a day of selling almost $1,500.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training should be hands-on. Commissions should be thoroughly explained prior to hire.
