    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at National Vision full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours and decent pay were the biggest pros. Flexibility in when I wanted to take vacation time and was able to take weekends off (Saturdays)

    Cons

    I Worked there for many years and always showed up, only called in sick 2x in 6 years, was loyal and reliable and then one day I got a phone call that I was replaced. No warning, no negotiating, no respect to the years of service I had given them, nothing. They just cut your throat when they are done with you and that's it, no reason or anything given. I feel they should have more respect for their team members who help to build and establish their business, but they don't.

    Advice to Management

    Think carefully before you make rash decisions like letting a good loyal reliable employee go.

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

    Pros

    Hours, Vacation time, Job security, Benefits

    Cons

    I just wish we had an edger still. I feel it would increase sales for one hour glasses and we could charge a fee for that. Otherwise...nothing

    Advice to Management

    10 years and counting. Walked into a Vision Center hoping to get out of job I had and thought to myself that I would only work there for a few months until I found something else. Had no optical experience. Found I loved the field and loved the benefits. Also, no other employeer will give the vacation time National Vision, Inc. gives. I love the place I work for. I love helping people and if you follow policy, you will have a long, successful carrer here. I don't know of any other place that the CEO leaves a weekly message to all the stores and will listen to any comments that employees leave, but this happens here. My store is always looking for ways to grow and help to encourage growth in other stores. I feel it to be a family environment. You can get an answer from someone at home office all the time. I have had a VP come into my store and treat me as an equal and they were very kind and helpful. Great company!
