    I worked at For Eyes Optical full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    well I use to have good resasons, but thru the last 5 years of my employment with this company, this changed for the worst.

    Cons

    Not enough recognition with employees who have worked for them for many years...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To go back to promoting from within, because those are dedicated employees which over 75% of them have been there over 10-15 years or more.

    Pros

    People you work with, some interesting customers, flexible schedules and easy to switch between locations

    Cons

    Sales can be tough in any industry, they don't take suggestions from employees for sales promotions or feedback on sales techniques.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees in relation to sales promotions and stick up for employees when customers yell and scream to get what they want and still come back (i.e. getting a product for free and refund just for making a fuss)

    Pros

    Its a paycheck, a small one

    Cons

    Work with company 7 years now and the top sales. Not a single raise. Was told to sell more. Company in process of loosing all long term employees. Im leaving before they get to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Horrible. They were bought out by Luxottica. Went from Aranon corp, to now For Eyes of Coconut Grove. Upper does NOT care who brings in the money...so no support.

    I worked at For Eyes Optical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Tight knit group of employees who confided in and help each other survive during management changing debacles which For Eyes seems to think is necessary for growth! Sorry that's the only pro I can think of.

    Cons

    Pay is low, hours are long (9-10 hours per day). open 7 days. They cut hours in November and December when employees need money the most, no raises in 6 years, sales plan increases even though the economy declines, threats to make plan or get fired are usual and customary, moral is low due to uncertainty of management changes and threats of firing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start with intense professional training from the TOP DOWN. Everything rolls downhill and your business is now a reflection of upper management not having standardized training in HR practices, management, communication, optical training, etc . Set up a promotion and monetary reward system to educate and promote from within (duh, look at QT). Raise the pay and be more astute when hiring! And last but not least, hire professional marketers and advertise! You use to have good company values, however went "corporate" too fast without a solid growth plan and now your paying the price!

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people that work their, the commission is not that bad, the benefits are really pretty good.

    Cons

    The pay is low, no raises, impossible to get promoted, the company does not take up for their employees, disgruntled patients, terrible hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more training for employees, offer reimbursement for certification, have more positions open for promotion, hire more experienced people to fill positions.

    FOR EYES SUCKS!

    I have been working at For Eyes Optical

    Pros

    ForEyes is a job, and be thankful for having a job. The job is very relaxed, most of the time you only have to deal with 3 other co-workers. The scheduling is more flexible then most other jobs.

    Cons

    No career advancement, they do not care about their employees, the pay sucks, and management steals all the commission from the employees! This place is open 7 days a week, which sucks, because on Sunday you go to work and there is no customers coming in , so basically you sit there for nothing. You earn vacation time and if you do not use it up before the end of the year (but you can't use it cause your working 7 days a week) they take all but 5 days from you, and they don't even pay you for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of you employees better.

    My job is ok, I have been here more than 2 years which is better than other optical/dr. offices I have worked at.

    Pros

    The dr. I work for is awesome and My optical team is great to work with. Company is good at getting you the time off you need.

    Cons

    Benefits package is less than par and too expensive for a family to afford. Leadership in corporate is always rotating and decisions are always being made on the fly it seems and it keeps us on our toes and the decisions aren't always "practical" with how each store runs specifically and with the outdated equipment we have to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look into the outdated equipment and vamp up our stores so we can become a very very pleasant choice appearance wise to our customers and try to incorporate your changes that benefit the store rather than just corporate themselves.
