I worked at Pearle Vision full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Nice career in a demanding market.

Cons

No future in this business for an eyeglass manufacturer. Unless you own the business you`ll always be working for the business.

Advice to Management

With the introduction of Luxottica to the company the true spirit of Pearle Vision has been stained and dropped in value and respect from customers and employees.
Luxottica brought horrible management skills with their mentality. Hiring inexperienced people to manage experienced people makes no sense and it`s offensive.
Low unmatched pay for experienced personnel in high demanding industry is offensive and disrespectful to the employees that have been in the business for most of their career length.

    I worked at Pearle Vision part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free glasses every year. Managers works around your schedule

    Cons

    Minimum wage with the promise of commission however, if commission is not met depending on sale you will make the base pay. There were pay cuts in the year 2008 when employees did not meet their reviews.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring for managerial position please consider employees already with the company.
    Please consider raising the pay raise with the elimination of commission

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Selling a necessary and high quality product
    Co-workers supportive and caring
    Corporate Volunteers Opportunities that can include travel
    Pays better than standard retail

    Cons

    A lot of product competition with other glasses retailers
    Not a lot of communication about moving up in the company
    Managment receives preferential treatment

    Advice to Management

    As an employee, I was not personally interested in moving up the corporate ladder. However, many of my co-workers were and the communication of management opportunities were not communicated until they had passed. Being up front with the employees about their options to better their standard of living would be a valuable management style and could encourage more trust between sales associates and upper management.
