    I worked at Luxottica part-time

    Pros

    Loved this job. Great pay rate and good commission. Learned how to engage customers easily and felt comfortable doing it. I had an awesome team with me. Really understand and display that they carry quality over quantity products in the store. Had great interactive app on Ipad that customers would use all the time. Even though I no longer work there, I will still be a loyal customer for life.

    Cons

    Really wish the store I was at had a security camera, other than that, no complaints!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for them, I think mine did a great job

    I worked at Luxottica part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility with hours, energetic and friendly atmosphere, small team of co-workers enables employee bonding. Great manager!

    Cons

    If you are not a natural at sales pitch, it could be a challenge to meet your weekly goal. Keeping an eye for shop lifters when the store is busy is always a challenge especially if you are by yourself

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Job at management! I think the the manager at the location where I worked did an awesome job at being at being a transactional and transformational leader!

    I have been working at Luxottica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sunglass Hut has some pretty amazing perks for employees. Great discount (30% always, 50% occasionally, free eye exams). Usually a supportive and energetic management team.

    Cons

    Some of the company's choices of upper management are questionable. My region has an extremely high turnover both in upper level management and store level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management tends to forget how things in the stores operate. There's a constant pressure to perform without any support or understanding of how the retail environment of my mall is struggling.

    Pros

    Great flexibility, training, above-award pay, and KPIs are something to work toward rather than a necessity to maintaining your position.

    Cons

    Customer care give in to all customer demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your staff in regards to letting customers get away with absolutely anything.

    Wonderful

    I worked at Luxottica as an intern

    Pros

    Friendly people, very relaxed work environment, small teams, and the international environment was fascinating. It definitely flies under the radar as one of the best places to work. Creative and demanding

    Cons

    Organization could be better (but I was there during the summer so people were in and out between New York and Milan, so that probably accounts for it). Honestly, nothing significant to complain about.
