    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..

    Former Employee - Lead Lab Technician in Katy, TX

    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.

    Bad working environment if you don't "luck out" with a good store

    Former Employee - OD Coordinator in Philadelphia, PA
    Former Employee - OD Coordinator in Philadelphia, PA

    I worked at Visionworks full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I learned a lot of useful skills at Visionworks...how to pretest people coming in for eye exams, verify insurances, teach people how to put in and remove their new contact lenses, etc. The "OD Coordinator" position is basically being an assistant to the Optometrist. It's also a position you can feel good about.

    Cons

    The overall environment varies from store to store. The store that I trained at was really nice where everyone was respectful of one another and acted cohesively to make the store and the workday more pleasant. Stores like that seem to be dying out. After my training I worked at three other locations that were all NEW stores and they were all horrible. Disrespect, discrimination, jealousy, playing favorites, undermining good employees, while the bad ones seem to have management wrapped around their finger, even driving a hostile environment by reminding us all on an almost daily basis that "you don't need to be friends (with your coworkers)"...the list goes on...the job itself is good, but management can really make or break the experience.
