    I worked at GrandVision full-time

    Pros

    Great discounts on glasses and you learn a lot. Free exam. Nice employees.

    Cons

    Doctors are hard to work for and have you do way too many jobs other than your own. Pay is not great, and you are required to work Saturdays. You also only get 5 days a year for PTO. That's inclusive of sick time and vacation. There were a couple really nice people that worked there. Crazy amount of turn over. They put a lot of pressure on you to sell glasses, but expect you to do a lot of other things as well, so you can't be on the floor as much as needed. Completely understaffed, and you have to stay until the patient leaves even if its 2 hours after closing. Also if some one knocks on the door, even if you are closed, you have to open it, even if you are about to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff better and give more PTO.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GrandVision (Barcelona (Spain)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    First of all I was interviewed by a consultant. Then I reached the short list and had a talk with CEO and CFO, focused in business and strategy. Then I had another one with the Sales Manager and the Supply Chain Manager more focused on operational items as recruitment or training.

    It was an easy and friendly conversation.
