I worked at Visionworks

Pros

the pay is ok for the industry, and benefits were mediocre at best....the company is growing fast and time off flexible

Cons

regional management and upper management are uneducated and unprofessional. they promise a lot at first. worked there for 2 years and still not sure who my boss was?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

slow the growth until your systems catch up. if $$ is all you care about, your care will always be second rate.

    Pros

    Vision insurance given to all employees within the first week of hire. Good beginner's experience in a sales environment. Fellow employees are respectful and easy to get along with. Receives commission based on sales.

    Cons

    Management lacks direction and decision making. Customers can be hard to deal with. Hiring process is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a management team with experience in optics and sales. Also look for leadership and education.

    Pros

    Most employees are grea and hours are ok

    Cons

    doesn't matter how much experience you have, when it come right down to it you are a salesman.
    You can sell the perfect pair of eyeglasses and get a commision of about 20 to 100.00 a week but if you don't sell that 6.99 cleaning kit you will get written up. And as easily as it is to make commission you lose it faster by lab errors and delays. Benifits are awful. The company is owned by BCBS and you still pay over 130.00 a month for health insurance. And forget vacation. There are only about 4 months out of the year that you can take vacation, everything else is blackedout. It's an all boys club too. Not to many women in upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get out of your office.Stop micro managing. District managers should come to storesand stop sending 10-20 faxes about how everyone sucks at their job. Do you sell eyeglasses or cleaning kits?
