I have been working at Luxottica full-time for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

Look 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.

    Current Employee - Store Manager in 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 flaws to rating system and annual reviews. Ratings based solely on numbers provided to upper management via sales tracking programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More personal interaction with store management in their own environment. This would help with more accurate annual reviews. In 3 years I have Never had upper management in my store longer than 20 minutes, and have only been in my store 6 times in 3 years. This makes it difficult for store managers to accept review ratings.
