    I have been working at Luxottica part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love what I do. It is a very rewarding job and you gain a lot of sales experience and people skills while having this position. The people I work with are very knowledgable about what they are doing. They re always willing to answer questions and help you out when needed.

    Cons

    They are very strict with hours. They want you to have as much availability as possible but do not schedule you a lot of hours when you do. It is frowned upon to have a second job because they want you to have as many hours available but it is not possible with the pay and amount of hours you get.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you know who you are hiring to run the stores. People with optical experience will be a better fit. When you throw a manager into a high volume store that doesn't know anything about optics it does more harm than good. Money isn't everything, we are here to help people, money isn't always the goal.

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

    Pros

    Easy job, not too demanding.
    Pay is great in regards to work demands and when compared to other retail jobs.
    Great discount.

    Cons

    Company has realigned positions so much in the past year and a half. My position changed 3 times during this time period.
    It's not uncommon to transfer to different locations.

    I have been working at Luxottica (More than a year)

    Pros

    I love who I work with, all of the associates are willing to help each other and want to motivate one other to do better.

    Cons

    It is frowned upon to have a second job but hours are limited at all stores. They want you to have full availability but can't schedule you enough hours to live on.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you know who you are hiring to run the stores. If you throw a person into a management position that has zero optical experience it does more harm to the store than good. While all of the skills are learnable top management should have more knowledge than just have to make money. We need to remember were here to help others not just make money.
