    I have been working at Luxottica Retail full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Benefits are good. Alot of over time with incentives for working over most of the time. Other little perks

    Cons

    You work almost 7 days a week. 10 hrs almost everyday. They have a work at the drop of a dime with little notice. They follow a point system. That determins how long your employed with them. Management is horrible an use bullying as tactics. If u think your going to turn to HR think again. They are they are apart of it. Who likes you is contingent upon your advancement not your hard work. Im when i say a lack of communication on every level i mean that with everything.

    Advice to Management

    Stop over working employees. As though they dont have families an lives outside of Luxottica

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, bonuses and perks

    Cons

    KPI's driven crazy, high turnover, senior leadership has no optical background experience, always increasing goals and metrics -so you can't achieve it. If you are a front line associate commissions and working hours have been lowered

    I worked at Luxottica Retail full-time

    Pros

    Great building and amenities

    Cons

    Used to be a GREAT company to work for but then owner started getting involved again and has ruined the company culture and stability of the organization. Several departments have moved to New York and Italy. They lost a lot of great talent and filler positions with male Italians. Awful ending to what was once such an awesome place to work

    Advice to Management

    Won’t listen anyways....

    Pros

    You can get bonuses on your pay check for completing jobs early, other than that there isn't much to offer

    Cons

    Between the Inconsistent scheduling, poor management, bad pay, no training for new associates and technical support is practically non existent

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay, give hours to those willing to do the work and not just the favorites, work on consistent scheduling, better training for new staff, this on the job learning stuff does not work, that's why your turnover rate is so high
