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.

    Pros

    Corporate so everything is laid out as far as how they want you to do your job.

    Cons

    Managers don't appreciate staff until they are gone.
    Not really any chance for a raise aside from the $0.11 yearly cost of living raise.
    Only a couple options for lenses, can't really use your skill as an optician.
    They REALLY push the poly lenses because they are cheap to make, but they are really not the best option for most people.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to reward your staff for a job well done, keep an eye on the lazy ones who have been around too long.
