    Contact Lens Technician Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses (Ankeny, IA) in September 2013.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of a few brief questions about how you would handle different customer situations. All the employees were very friendly and welcoming. I was hired on the spot, then they have Vericon check out your history. Vericon got me mixed up with another person since they do not use your social security number but only variations of your name and birth date. They are very unreliable in doing background checks. After getting my own name cleared by going to the DCI, I was able to begin work.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. The interview went extremely smoothly.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There base pay of $10 hr. plus an additional $1 hr. for being a keyholder was a great starting pay. You also earn bonuses for selling the customer's the club, which is very easy to do.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses (Raleigh, NC) in December 2012.

    Interview

    very unorganized. I was called the day before to set up an interview at a hotel. I didn't find out I was hired until the manager contacted me to get to know me better. It was the district manager's job to tell me that I was hired and tell me how much I was to be paid. That never happened.

    Unlicensed Optician Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Monroe, MI

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses (Monroe, MI) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Honestly, it was the easiest interview I've ever had. I went in extremely prepared and learned as much as I could about the company beforehand. The GM had my resume (I originally applied as a receptionist) and told me I was overqualified for that position. The entire interview was the GM explaining the role of the unlicensed optician position and explaining the required monthly sales goals. I believe the only question I was even asked was what my availibility was and how soon I could start. The interview ended with the GM telling me to call them if I hadn't heard anything within the next week. I called a week later and was offered the position and given a start date.

    Receptionist/Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at America's Best Contacts & Eyeglasses (Houston, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional. They were late, didn't have any questions prepared, and it was obvious that they were trying to cut it as short as possible so they could eat.
    From the interview alone I could tell that this job may not have been for me and the high expectations I have.
    I came into this interview thinking that I was there to actually prove to them that I was a great choice for this position, but they didn't care. They basically told me that I had it because I looked nice.
    And even with over 5 years of management position they still offered me a crap pay.
    I asked for 10 and they said they couldn't do it.
    I recommend this for someone who just wants to make a little cash and doesn't care about poor service and unprofessionalism.
