    I worked at cohens fashion optical

    Pros

    Streamlined flow of customers and patients. The overall strategy is designed for efficiency and for that matter alone, the process works.

    Cons

    A franchised store is subject to the whims of the owner. If this isn't done the store is very much like a fiefdom.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to keep a closer eye on franchise owners. They can and do give a black eye to the company and the business.

    I worked at cohens fashion optical full-time

    Pros

    Some great co-workers, free frame a year and "discounts".

    Cons

    Paychecks are rarely accurate to hours worked, no health insurance, useless conference calls every week. Management gets ugly and personal. Sales are pushed, over priced products make sales harder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop over pressuring your Mgr.'s and DM's since they transmit the frustrations on their team, some, in very nasty ways. Have more trust on your employees, support and empower them somehow. And remember your staff have families. I would be nice not to think working this average paying job is negatively affecting my family and mental health. After all, I believed this was a family owned company.

    I worked at cohens fashion optical

    Pros

    Was a fun place to work, had good spiffs and opportunities for commission, offered company paid trips, dinners, and award ceremonies, potential to make good money if you're good at selling, free pair of glasses/sunglasses every year, professional development workshops and good benefits package.

    Cons

    Retail hours, fast paced environment with minimal breaks, pressure to make goals, unfair office politics depending on management, and dealing with difficult customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your store managers more.
