    I worked at Luxottica full-time

    Pros

    Sterile work environment where uniforms are not required. A humble place to be around friends and commiserate. Possibility of earning extra crumbs provided you sell enough merchandise to your prey. Higher management tend to care about their jobs and company performance.

    Cons

    Slow hours filled with misery and regret. Must have decent conflict resolution skills when dealing with cranky patrons.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    I worked at Luxottica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    none. The discount on the glasses is not worth it

    Cons

    -upper management micro manages insignificant things, but never seems to be available when you really need them - inconsistent and unclear communication - constantly changing rules - no feeling of being a team - pay

    Advice to Management

    please do the MS job for two months, then revisit how you treat your teams in the field

    I have been working at Luxottica part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere Great co-workers ( for the most part): Luxottica likes to employ people who are energetic, positive and passionate about work Nice discount: Year round employees receive 30% off and special weeks throughout the year discount is raised to 50% Able to apply discount to all affiliate Luxottica stores ( Sunglass Hut, Lenses Crafters, Ilori, etc.) Free pair of frames on your one year anniversary working for Luxottica

    Cons

    Pay rate is horrible for the reputation they uphold. I was surprised to learn how a multi billion dollar company pays their employees globally at such an average rate, employees should easily be payed a much higher hourly rate of pay; if you want to be seen as a luxury retail store ( which is what management boasts about frequently) you should pay your workers a fairer wage.

    Advice to Management

    Luxottica is rated as one of the best places to work for full time employees, but for those who work part time, the benefits are slim to none and that should be addressed as well.
