I worked at Pearle Vision

Pros

one of the reasons to work for pearle vision was their pay and benefits structure. i paid for college while working there. on top of a competitive hourly rate for sales associates, you get commission on things you sell. most everyone who comes in for an eye exam will end up buying glasses, so most of the work is already done for you.

Cons

one of the downsides of working for Pearle Vision now is lots of changes with it being bought by cole managed vision, who also owns lens crafters. all of its promotions are the same, except lens crafters are known to deliver within an hour...a competative advantage of Pearle Vision.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

senior management needs to do more company events where stores in the same area can meet and greet each other since sometimes they reach out for help from store to store.

    I worked at Pearle Vision part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, low stress job.

    Cons

    Even though i was making top sales in the region every month since the beginning of my employment there, my first performance review was "satisfactory" only because I didn't have seniority. I thought it was supposed to be performance review rather than seniority review.
