I worked at LensCrafters part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good working environment and culture. Management was motivating and supportive. Held period group meetings which were helpful in keeping everyone feeling connected and knowledgeable.

Cons

The base pay is minimal and not much of an increase per year. I also did not see a lot of opportunity for advancement.

    I have been working at LensCrafters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, VERY flexible hours, great benefits- I get 5 weeks vacation time, 9 holidays, health, dental, free company pension plan, 401k that matches 3% sometimes up to 5% if company has a good quarter, free glasses, innovator in the optical industry, training, and much more...

    Not sure what some of the reviewers are thinking about the lack of training. LC training is top in the industry. With most of their training being ABO certified, very thorough. They also pay for any certifications, licenses, etc. Their quality is next to none. The quality standards are more stringent than those set by ANSI, not saying they are perfect, but quality is next to none.

    Cons

    lots of pressure to stay on top, pressure to meet sales goal, hours crunch, it can be stressful at times, and just general stress with working in retail environment with the public...

    Advice to Management

    Upper management are sometimes hired with no optical experience...don't understand what we go through in store level as managers....
