    Co-workers made it bearable.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

    ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementFind better people to run your stores.

    Self Managers.............

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

    ConsManagers 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 Senior ManagementHIRE FREAKING MANAGERS WHO ACTUALLY GIVES A CRAP ABOUT THEIR EMPLOYEES AND NOT THEIR SELFISH BUTTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Horrible

    Lab Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsNone at all. Horrible company

    ConsCompany 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 Senior Managementquit 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Have been employed for a while. Been doing well so far, and yes had to work hard. If you LIKE optical.

    Lab Manager (Current Employee)
    Medford, OR

    ProsLike any company work hard get raises and get promoted, lots of free training and learning. If you stick it out and love optical you can go far in this company, they promote within and really care about the customers.

    ConsHome office in Texas. When a machine goes down It hard to catch up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave management train in other stores and see how other people deal with daily situations.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    If you want to work like a dog, with no breaks, this is the job for you!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere really aren't any. The only one is that They are closed on Sundays.

    ConsPay is the lowest in the area, regardless of incentives. You could literally start at McDonalds and make more money. Forget about eating a lunch on most days. The benefits are expensive and cover absolutely nothing. Regional management encourages turnover. They made a lens switch in 2013 to a lesser quality brand that many customers in our area have problems with, yet staff is told by upper management does not allow refunds.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. They won't listen anyways. Though many came from working at the store level, they have become fattened pigs, mooching off of the hard work of the poor people below them. While many of them require public assistance, Dr. Barnes owns one of the 10 most opulant houses in Dallas, a private jet, and many of the other luxuries that grossly rich people have. Sad that many of his employees starve, can barely pay their bills, or take care of their health or children.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible place to work DONT work there

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosmost employees are nice to work with

    ConsManagement is terrible!!! they will lie and throw you under the bus any chance they get

    Advice to Senior ManagementLive up to your so called Culture cutting staff, firing valued employees, high turnover will only weaken this already weak company the reputation is getting worse and worse

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overworked, underpaid.

    Lab Tech (Former Employee)

    ProsYou stay busy, the day goes by fast.

    ConsMany times you will be too busy. Pay is too little for the amount of stress. 'Training period' was a complete lie. I was barely trained, I was dumped directly into the lab and was being held accountable for breakages my second day. I had no idea what the hell I was doing right or wrong at that point and was completely baffled as to why I was getting talked down to rather harshly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep retail and management OUT of the lab! So much breakage directly caused by the store manager trying to micro-manage the lab. Retail was never reprimanded for pulling incorrect lenses, completely botching scripts, etc.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
