Pros

Employee owned - period! The management seems to be out for them self.

Cons

Management - Does not motivate - uses threats to get the motivation out of employees.

Advice to Management

Your employees make the company. Learn what is important to the employees. Quit tracking us field sales reps like a bounty hunter!

    Pros

    The hours are the best in the store. The Vision Center is closed on major holidays as a typical doctor's office would be. You are generally not called into the main of the store to help others accomplish tasks because we are dealing with patients who take precedence. No cashiering or cart pushing for example. If you decide to take the test to become a licensed optician and pass, Walmart with reimburse you the amount.

    Cons

    Customers of Walmart have a tendency to think we do not employ "real" doctors. All of our optometrists go through medical school and have earned the right to place Dr. in front of their names. Others think that because we are able to offer our glasses, contacts, services ect. at such an affordable price that the quality must also be lesser. Not the case.

    Advice to Management

    My only have one complaint about the ability to achieve advancement within the company. I was told by a manager that is easier to train a manager from another department in optical, than it is for an optician to be trained as a manager. It can get frustrating to have to train your boss in basics for a position that you can do with your eyes closed.

  2. I learned many different aspects of making eyeglasses
