I have been working at Luxottica part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Sunglass Hut is great about working around your schedule (other jobs, school etc) and its very easy to get time off. Its also a clean environment and more of a "fun" atmosphere and they do pay above minimum wage. Also free glasses for each year you're with the company.

Cons

High daily sales goals add a lot of pressure and its usually aggressive selling, which gets uncomfortable at times with co-workers and having to shadow customers. You are also told you will make commission on sales, which is only true if EVERYONE makes their sales and that just doesn't happen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Workers should get commission based off their own performance. Its discouraging to bring in thousands of dollars for the company and get nothing more than someone who just stands around doing nothing.

    Pros

    Usually solo shifts so you can do what you want

    Cons

    They really want you to jump down the customers throat when picking out glasses! They also hire so many employees so you get no hours!

    I worked at Luxottica

    Pros

    Great product, management promotes that you look stylish and dress up, good discount and opportunities to win merchandise

    Cons

    The "commission" is a rip off, the more you sell the more you work the highest traffic hours... The weekend and holidays

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Selling glasses is not the most important thing in the world to you college student employees
