Pros

I can't really say there are any. If your a part-time employee, the manager is very flexible with scheduling. Good workplace for a college student. The doctors are the best.

Cons

Boss favors women and treats male employees with very little respect. Employees no call no show and still have jobs. Employees with no experience get same rate as employees with multiple years. Part-time employees have the upper hand. Absolutely no room for advancement. I've seen employees undergo two years of productive employment with out a raise. Some employees are rude and belligerent, which consist of burping, farting, pretending to throw up, talking about hardcore sex acts.

Advice to Management

If there was a competent form of hr there would be trouble

    Pros

    one of the reasons to work for pearle vision was their pay and benefits structure. i paid for college while working there. on top of a competitive hourly rate for sales associates, you get commission on things you sell. most everyone who comes in for an eye exam will end up buying glasses, so most of the work is already done for you.

    Cons

    one of the downsides of working for Pearle Vision now is lots of changes with it being bought by cole managed vision, who also owns lens crafters. all of its promotions are the same, except lens crafters are known to deliver within an hour...a competative advantage of Pearle Vision.

    Advice to Management

    senior management needs to do more company events where stores in the same area can meet and greet each other since sometimes they reach out for help from store to store.

    Loved the experience this job provided and the staff that worked there. Relatively low stress work environment.

    The compensation was not the best and the commission was getting even lower than before.

    Advice to Management

    Wish they can re-evaluation​ the compensation structure and give people more stability in their work.
