From brown eye'd and bushy tailed to beat down and unmotivated

Sales Associate/Lab Technician (Current Employee)
Portland, OR

Pros-Yearly free pair of glasses (prescription or plano) valued up to $500
-There really are a few good people working here, genuine and hardworking, heavy on the "few"
-The ability to go anywhere and still maintain employment for the same company
-Tuition Reimbursement

Cons-Sudden cuts in hours leaving you to fend for yourself
-Heavy favoritism with no regard to merit or ability
-Consistant nepotism
-Almost all upper management positions are filled from outside of the company rather than promoting from within, especially at the corporate level
-Heaps of hours, overtime (which is expected to be done off the clock) and unrealistic sales expectations; then no hours, scrounging for shifts and still unrealistic sales expectations

Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the talent that is all around you! There are so many eager and deserving employees already within the company who are more than qualified to move up in corporate ladder, but because they do well where they are, you keep them there and fill in these new positions with outsiders, people with no business in optics (and no business in management in some cases). Believe in your employees and their ability to grow, they may surprise you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good short term gig

    Store Manager (Current Employee)
    Phoenix, AZ

    I have been working at Luxottica full-time


    Pros: I higher volume stores great potential for high commission Cons: Limited availability to move up, unless positions are available. Do not see senior management in managers own environment. Causing… Advice to Senior Management: More personal interaction with store management in their own environment. This would help with more accurate annual reviews. In 3 years I have… More
