Optician (Current Employee)
College Park, MD

I have been working at Sears Optical part-time for more than a year

The company gives you a free pair of glasses or sunglasses from Sun glass Hut on the anniversary of your employment year. The benefits are not that bad you get Eyemed vision insurance whether your part time or not. you get paid holidays, Aetna dental and health insurance and FSA account and 401K if your a full time employment.

ConsThe hours are not consistent, you do not get commission if you do not make the weekly store goal you will only get base pay. You rarely get a raise I been with the company 2 years and got a 25 cent raise during the two years i been with the company.

I have been working at Sears Optical


Pros: I get great satisfaction in helping people and this is a place I can do that. People are having a hard time getting what they… Cons: Company does not care about anything except $$$ No reward or positivity at store level, or mid mgmt. level, all negative no matter how much… Advice to Senior Management: The possibilities are endless @ Sears Optical, if only the Company would roll out the power to make it happen. All common goals can be… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
