    Former Employee - Manager/Optician in Mesa, AZ

    I worked at Nationwide Vision Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The operating hours were good and stores were not open on Sundays. The over all work environment was mainly due to the office manager, so if you had a "working" manager with a good attitude it was quite pleasant.

    Cons

    If you worked in a prime location and the doctor was good you could make decent money, if not, the pay was not up to standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needed to be more consistant, with all the rules and regulations applying to all the people all the time.

    Beware -- Not all stores are created equal. Don't believe everything you hear.

    I have been working at Nationwide Vision Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are some great employees!

     New ownership means change! A shakedown would be good for all ranks. It might keep senior staff on their toes and re-evaluate the existing culture.

    Cons

    The great employees are not always recognized. Then there are some...not so great at all but who know those in power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management through intimidation rarely has a positive outcome.

    Pros

    You can grow in this company, and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Hourly wage is not good. The rules change too much. Too much miscommunication. Every store is run differently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nationwide is a large family. Your managers should know and also care about their children - so to speak, we spend 8 hours a day or more serving you. You should know what makes each individual thrive, like you would your own children. You should know how to teach them in their learning style. It is NOT a one size fits all. But anyone can do this job with the right teaching. The stores can all be run the same, that is needed. They all need to be on the same page.

    Pros

    Managment was always willing train employees in all areas of the field.

    Cons

    Once trained in all areas, you were constantly being moved around to other branches to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote and give raises to people that deserve it. This will make for happier employees.
