    I have been working at Luxottica

    Pros

    Great work-Life balance, Amazing Supervisor, Compensation, Development, and PTO is good. Its a great job if you are a student because the hours, depending on the shift, balance well with a school schedule. They also provide tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    3rd and 4th shift hours make it a little difficult to go out at night. Sometimes it is difficult when you are trying to work with leadership from other departments because they have their own set of goals they have to accomplish and they sometimes bend the policy to do it.

    I worked at Luxottica full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a very fun job. Then we got bought out by Luxottica. You can grow as long as you are in with your D.M's.

    Cons

    BEWARE if you are there for a long time and they can replace you for less they will. Doesn't matter if you are making goal or not. They will hound you for the tiniest things and write you up, like a few finger prints on the window and I do mean a few. Once they start that you know you have been targeted. They expect you to work crazy hours with no extra compensation holidays, and you are hourly not salary. They expect you to stand for an eight to ten to twelve hour shift with no breaks. You must eat standing up and continually be interrupted while you eat because they cut payroll to the minimum and single coverage means your the only one there. How do they get away with it believe me they do.
    So if you like being abused and taken advantage of, or run to the end of your rope, this is the place for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the owner, we are not lucky to be hired by you as you insist on telling us.

    Pros

    GREAT PAY!! W/ high commission and outstanding benefits after some time of working there
    Once hired on, there is a great chance that you're going to be there to stay!
    Job for life!

    Cons

    Lack of management skills from the managers at specific locations
    Once you leave the company, for good or for bad reasons, it's hard to find a solid job like the one you had with Luxottica...THEY OWN EVERYTHING.
    Lack of advancement to become higher within the company...promised promotions and raises leads to false hopes and aspirations and dreams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on hiring people from the bottom up, versus bringing in new people without degrees or experience in the field...creates less commotion and uproar with the commission and when there is any kind of advancement.
