    I have been working at Visionworks

    Pros

    Challenging, yet rewarding environment in which we are empowered to put the customer first. The expectations are clearly outlined. The performance management process in place is geared toward improving results, not just a fast track to letting go of associates who do not exceed expectations.

    Cons

    This is not a job for someone who does not want to be the best they can be. This is not a job for someone who does not welcome feedback about their performance. This is not a job for someone who does not want to work hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To Visionworks Management: Thanks for acknowledging us when we do well and continually providing tools and training so we can be the best for the customers. Please continue to simplify processes and maximize the best merchandise. The customer is the reason we are here. We want to be able to offer them exciting products and focus on them.

    I have been working at Visionworks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You don't have to have any optical experience, Visionworks will train you. They have locations everywhere so it's very easy to transfer if you have to move.

    Cons

    Vacation time isn't that great and because they are retail there is a lot of black out dates. I'd you're on the store level sometimes the goals are not that realistic and is hard to reach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone in corporate should be required to work on the store level a couple of times a year so that they can better understand what it is we need.

    the doctors at visionworks do not have the best hours, and I do not have control of my schedule like i did when I was self-employed.

    I worked at Visionworks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work around your school schedule.
    You get out what you put in to it.
    Working in the lab, I very rarely dealt with the drama of retail side.
    I was always asked to moves up in the company, but because I graduated college, it just became a job until I found my career. People are friendly and helpful to the lab technician.

    Cons

    My position did required some repairs if machines broke down, so I did get dirty. But I was also in charge of maintenance, so machine very rarely broke down. Pay could be better.

    I worked at Visionworks part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    i enjoyed working with the people, it was a great experience. i did learn a lot from the Doctors i worked with and for that i am very thankful..

    Cons

    Management is all about the bottom line... they claim to be family oriented and flexible, from my experience I found this to be far from the truth...They do not believe in hiring from within , would rather hire someone off the street .and then throw them in to a management position..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They really need to look at the people working for them and value the ones who do a good job , and show them that the are valued..
