    I worked at Pearle Vision full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice career in a demanding market.

    Cons

    No future in this business for an eyeglass manufacturer. Unless you own the business you`ll always be working for the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the introduction of Luxottica to the company the true spirit of Pearle Vision has been stained and dropped in value and respect from customers and employees.
    Luxottica brought horrible management skills with their mentality. Hiring inexperienced people to manage experienced people makes no sense and it`s offensive.
    Low unmatched pay for experienced personnel in high demanding industry is offensive and disrespectful to the employees that have been in the business for most of their career length.

    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
