ProsContinual webex training for staff to further develop their skills in the optical industry, therefore, you don't need to be a qualified/experienced dispenser to start your career at Specsavers. The staff and family members gets discounts on glasses and contact lenses.

ConsIf you are new to the optical industry, you might find it overwhelming with the ever changing offers Specsavers have, as well as getting to know about claiming health funds.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
