I worked at Pearle Vision part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Free glasses every year. Managers works around your schedule

Cons

Minimum wage with the promise of commission however, if commission is not met depending on sale you will make the base pay. There were pay cuts in the year 2008 when employees did not meet their reviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When hiring for managerial position please consider employees already with the company.
Please consider raising the pay raise with the elimination of commission

    I worked at Pearle Vision

    Pros

    Selling a necessary and high quality product
    Co-workers supportive and caring
    Corporate Volunteers Opportunities that can include travel
    Pays better than standard retail

    Cons

    A lot of product competition with other glasses retailers
    Not a lot of communication about moving up in the company
    Managment receives preferential treatment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an employee, I was not personally interested in moving up the corporate ladder. However, many of my co-workers were and the communication of management opportunities were not communicated until they had passed. Being up front with the employees about their options to better their standard of living would be a valuable management style and could encourage more trust between sales associates and upper management.
