I have been working at National Vision

Pros

Consistent and Helpful information from main office
Great intro training for new associates
Still able to help customers look good without breaking their bank

Cons

50 hour minimum work week for salaried managers
If you work over 50 hours...Oh well! No comp time as in other opticals
Salary about 30-35% less than same posiition in competitor's business
Work never "good enough" You could be running 25% over last year in sales and making most internals and upper management will ALWAYS focus on the negative
More paperwork than any other company I have ever worked for...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your managers a pat on the back once in awhile..
Work WITH your managers to increase performance and stop with the threats

    I have been working at National Vision

    Pros

    This company has excellent advancement potential. The company expectations are not over stated. The senior management actually listens to your thoughts, opinions, and ideas.

    Cons

    In certain areas, licensed opticians are not paid at comparable rates to what other companies are currently paying. However, this may be offset by the commission offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly I feel you should keep up the good work. I appreciate knowing that I have a voice in this company.

    I worked at National Vision

    Pros

    There are some very friendly people that come to work at National Vision, people that really do want you to succeed.

    Cons

    Felt like once I was promoted a target was painted on my back. Everyday I felt like I was constantly being watched by oter staff. Didn't know who to trust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be straightforward with your employees. Be supportive and be there when they need you. Not everyone means to make mistakes, but if they do you should help them to correct them and learn from them.
