Current Employee - General Manager

I have been working at National Vision

Pros

Communication from corporate is good
Excellent benefits package
Managers can pretty much run the store they way they feel best.
The CEO is all about the employees and how they feel about things
Very good training program for new employees

Cons

Upper managment does not provide positive feedback when your store is doing well
Very hard to fire employees
Lots of pressure to perform
Upper managment makes you feel like you are easily replaceable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think Mr Fahs should make sure the managers below him have his same values.

    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

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
