    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Visionworks part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Able to work alone 90% of the time in the lab. Able to help my coworkers, because the management doesn't have any optical experience. Ben doing this for 20 years and still love make glasses.

    Cons

    To be full time you have to be a supervisor( then you have on life) management can't take off
    put only one Saturday a mouth and you have to request it. Then there is blackout when you can only get time off with your TD OK. So starting this year i will not get to have Christmas with my family. But you know all up management will get to see there family

    Advice to Management

    management need to care about the people who work for them. They work hard to give you the numbers. You should at lest give them to time off to renumber why they are working so hard. We get no time off because you keep pay roll low for my money to make plain. So there is know one to work to give full time people time off. I know of five who will loses there vacation time and pto because up management said no to time off.
