    - All "promotions" are without a raise no matter how many new responsibilities you take on.
    - You will always be forced to take customer service calls even with 100 things on your plate.
    - Penalized for taking too long in the bathroom
    - Supervisors with high school mentalities, cliques, and knowing nothing about what you do.
    - Ridiculous call grading system
    - Unorganized phone queue with no priorities whatsoever.
    - No chance of moving to Corporate if you're a "35 hub" employee.
    - HR person changes constantly with no knowledge of your existence.
    - Your word isn't safe with anyone. If you don't want to start rumors DON'T talk.

    Pros

    Name Brand sunglasses & Frames at a discount for employees & Good Health, Dental, & Eye care Insurance. Not much else.

    Cons

    Self absorbed company who looks out for the better interest of themselves. They seem to applaud inappropriate behaviors between employees. If you're a chronic cheater, you'll love working here. This is like a whorehouse for Men & women alike. If you are married and have a spouse that works for the company, chances are your spouse is involved with an employee. If you are married and you work for this company, respect your marriage & don't take chances. None of these people are worth risking the loss of what you have at home. While there was no involvement with this person at the time, Lesson learned & sadly it took the crazy obsession of that individual. Your family & kids are far more valuable then some crazy unimportant fling. Don't risk their lives for that non-sense.
    The sad part of this whole thing is that the wrong person has to pay the consequences for the crazy obsessive behavior of an employee. The company looked out for the person in the wrong just because that person works there leaving the innocent ones at risk of more crazy obsessive behavior.

    Advice to Management

    No Comment. Management doesn't care anyway.
