    I worked at Eyemart Express

    Pros

    learning new things, making lenses was a cool process.

    Cons

    pay, no advancement, it was like being in high school.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your employees better, and provide better benefits. if an employee shows initiative to do the job well, is reliable, and willing to grow with the company, stop filling them with empty promises and give the right leadership and opportunity to grow and advance. also, it was like being in high school again, everyone talks about everyone and if the boss likes you you can pretty much get away with anything. if he/she doesn't they treat you like garbage.

    Pros

    Co Workers are nice They work hard

    Cons

    Terrible Corporate Culture and Low Morale. You need to check your brain at the door and just do what you are told or you will never last at this company. Managers from the top down are not reliable in their promises and do not value loyal hardworking people THE TURNOVER IS VERY HIGH AT THIS COMPANY. Expect to have more and more work assigned no matter how well you do, until you eventually fail. This is a poorly run company with small minded management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro managing and throwing people under the bus to save a few dollars short term. You need a more sophisticated Management style. You need to make your company a good place to work where employees are able to share their ideas and feel respected and valued. Saving money is important but cutting costs at the expense of lowering morale is going to cost you money in the long run start looking at the big picture

    I worked at Eyemart Express

    Pros

    Easy to make money with commission, not "hard" work. Not a high pressure sales job. Get experience in the optical world and get out!

    Cons

    Managers are definitely not trained well and do not have adequate social skills. They won't pay over time even if it means only one person on the sales floor for multiple hours. Management does not train employees! They throw them on the sales floor to fend for themselves and when they don't do good they fire them. They hire you with no experience and don't train you enough to do your job. For as much as we are expected to do pay is minimal. Starting as an apprentice you make 8.50 hr plus commission. If you don't take initiative you won't make money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have people "shop" the stores without letting anyone know. Do annual manager score cards anonymously. Ask the staff how everything is going and do things to make not only customers happy but employees like offering adequate training!

    I worked at Eyemart Express

    Pros

    The only thing I liked about working here was knowing i was making a difference and helping people see.

    Cons

    The store manager and the lab manager were awful. Apparently, it's okay to talk about and talk down to the employees. And don't even think of trying to defend yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find better people to run your stores.

    Pros

    Learning how to makes glasses, closed on sundays, great hours

    Cons

    Managers only think of themselves,will only look out for themselves, act like they care and follow the rules when coorpriate shows up when knowing good and well they dont, was not trained properly, expected to know more than what I was poorly trained for, forget it if you get sick theyll supposedly ask about your wellfare and want you to work like a dog instead of sending you home, working here will stress the crap out of you not to mention tire you out, oh did I mention they will humuliate you in front of employees and make you look stupid, pathetic just pathetic is what this company!!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HIRE FREAKING MANAGERS WHO ACTUALLY GIVES A CRAP ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES AND NOT THEIR SELFISH BUTTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    None at all. Horrible company

    Cons

    Company does not care at all about the employees. High pressure. They do not give you all of the necessary tools to do the job that they want done. Low quality products make it difficult to satisfy customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    quit ruining people's lives. Listed to the people in your stores. Get both sides of the story when customers complain. Most complaints are a result of the poor techniques the company employes.
