    I worked at Maui Jim (More than a year)

    Pros

    Although my internship with Maui Jim lasted less than a year, the culture and environment were extremely friendly and welcoming, and my department helped me gain valuable skills relevant to my career.

    Cons

    The nature of my internship (I was traveling extensively) demanded long hours but was very rewarding. The majority of their positions offer stability but those wishing to be interns must have tremendous flexibility.

    I worked at Maui Jim full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice sunglasses, one of the best optical labs in the world and great customer service. Dating co-workers or employees is encouraged.

    Cons

    Micro-management has lost focus. Sales are declining. Losing largest accounts. Increasing focus on CostCo, Vision Works and Academy Sports. All white HR department. Drastic cuts to sales force commission.

    Advice to Management

    Move out of Peoria so you can attract better leaders in sales and marketing.

    I have been working at Maui Jim full-time

    Pros

    Maui Jim is an AMAZING company to work for. Many perks and they treat the employees well. Extensive training and orientation as well.

    Cons

    If you enter in at entry level, it isn't the easiest to move or promote up.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat your employees well. Also, listen to the concerns and issues of those who are the back bone of the company.

    I worked at Maui Jim part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun place to work and great atmosphere. The Aloha spirit is within all of the employees and everyone is very friendly to each other no matter what department you work for.

    Cons

    I can't think of any major cons from the experience I had during the summer at Maui Jim. It overall was a great summer job for college students.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Aloha spirit strong within the company. Keep the fun perks of the summer job as well because it makes working full time more enjoyable.

    I worked at Maui Jim (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company and the experience you get as a corporate gifts "intern" is unmatched. They treat you with respect, give you the responsibilities of a full-time employee and allow you to travel and gain independence and life experience that you couldn't possibly gain in another position. The internship is extremely challenging but worth it! The company culture is also extremely fun and relaxed when you work in the office.

    Cons

    Being a full-time travel position you need to take the semester off from school. The hours and days can be extremely long but it honestly is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! All the staff, even the higher up management is extremely helpful and really wants to get to know everyone and is willing to help in any way possible.

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

    Pros

    They offer free food, fixed hours (great for those who don't want to get called into work at random hours and like a tidy schedule), a fun work environment. There are opportunities for pay raises with more time working with the company, and the company rewards loyalty.

    Cons

    Jobs get monotonous or boring over 8 hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    More work parties, more employee benefits.

    Pros

    Fun environment to be in. Everyone had laid back attitude and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of stress on customer service. Hard to keep up with tough customers.

    Advice to Management

    Maui Jim should be on Ray Ban level. Great sunglasses, should be marketed that way.
