I have been working at Optical Express

Pros

This is a dynamic company, constantly striving to introduce new and innovative refractive solutions.
The company pays well relative to other optical chains (Boots/D and A; Specsavers)

Cons

1) Persistent unpaid overtime due bad management of the clinical diary - this happens in practically every store.
2) Overbooked optometrist diaries.
3) Excessive monitoring of your performance
4) Expectations to deliver high value sales with almost no regard to the patient's wants, needs or expectations.
5) Profits and sales mean everything to this company, almost nothing else matters.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) To this day, staff welfare is an unheard of term at Optical Express, you would to well to introduce this concept to the company.
2) Be prepared to sacrifice a tiny percentage of you short term profits for integrity and honesty with your patients and with your staff: this will enhance your reputation in the Ophthalmic community and amongst potential customers and will improve your growth both in terms of sales volumes/value and in your dismal ability to retain personnel.
