Pros

it is a job and that is about it

Cons

management is concerned about one thing only - making money for the owner
employees are just a vehicle to do so
the company is run through deceit and bait and switch

Advice to Management

remove all of senior management and pray the company goes public and leaves the overwhelming control of the owner in order to grow

    Pros

    I got to use my optical education to help customers see. That is something I am passionate about doing.

    Cons

    Lied to during the interview...too many promises that were not kept. Virtually non-existent benefits (health insurance). Working non-stop without a break/lunch on many days. The store was packed with customers but only two retail people were working...customers were irritated. Scared of being dismissed (because of firings of numerous employees before me). Lousy pay, benefits, and compensation. Not supported by upper management. Lack of training/discipline.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good people...don't be so cheap. Too many corporate managers with little know-how. Too many firings. Don't treat your employees like they are expendable. Train them better. Try using a discipline system before just firing someone...if you saw something in a person that made you hire them encourage use of the trait. Policies need to be available for customers to read somewhere.

    Current Employee - Lab Tech

    Pros

    Cheap benefits thats is about it

    Cons

    Was lied to in my interview as well as all the other lab techs. Ok in the interview if you are interviewing for a lab tech position they explain that you and the retail sales make the same. NOT true. You see you incentives are Split by the number of plp that work there my store is split nine ways. In the Interview they tell you you get the total avg of what a Retail sales person makes as far as incentive. that is a total lie You avg about 60 bucks every two weeks for a 20k a week store, retail avg 150 - 200. If you want to work at eye mart work retail sales.. one more thing they say you avg 2-3 dollars a hour but its more like max .75 retail avg 3-4

    Advice to Management

    Stop screwing plp over.
