I have been working at Luxottica

Pros

Great co-workers, customer service oriented, great merchandise and products, good employee perks and benefits, commission is pretty fair, and the discounts are really nice.

Cons

The salary could be better, especially comparing it to other companies and the salaries they pay for the same position. Commission restrictions are fair but could be better. Commission should be a flat rate. Busier stores tend to make more commission regardless of how much work they put in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to figure out a way to make returns affect the store that they originally purchased from and not the store they are returning the items to. Management should explain the perks and benefits to all employees working under them.

    A lot of hard work and stress, but feels good to produce great eyewear.

    Pros

    OJT. Benefits, such as apprenticeship program. Great part time job with excellent benefits for part timers.

    Cons

    Secrecy, and unfair compensation for those who do not know their position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be VERY sure when you bring in outside potential managers/future managers at inflated salaries. Causes contention for those of us who have to carry them and pick up the pieces when they leave.

    I worked at Luxottica

    Pros

    - Fairly nice office building
    - Good insurance
    - Some opportunity to travel outside of the United States
    - Free pair of eye wear on your yearly anniversary

    Cons

    - Low wages/salary
    - Almost impossible to make bonus, which they tout very much when trying to get someone to join the company
    - Expected to work 10 or more hours per day, and they make so many roles "exempt" from overtime pay
    - Very corporate environment, be prepared for this or you will not make it.
    - Seems the only way to get ahead is by knowing the right person, your work ability appears to have little to do with advancement
    - Lackluster leadership team
    - Excessive corporate red tape
    - Layer after layer of management, too many chiefs and not enough Indians
    - Expected to do the work of 2 or 3 people for no additional wages
    - Little loyalty to employees, you are disposable as soon as you do not meet their needs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are the largest optical retailer in the world, but you have the reputation as the paying the lowest wages of any optical company. Eliminate the multiple layers of management, the communication between the current leadership is extremely poor. Would not recommend anyone work for this organization unless they are absolutely desperate for a job, and then I would tell them to start looking for their next job right away before the next RIF happens.
