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

    Pros

    I learned a lot! All about the sunglasses and more but the training didn't continue like they said it would so it took me a while to feel comfortable and get a lot of sales. I ended up doing really great and they started getting bonuses which was awesome! Competitive yet we still had to work as a team.

    Cons

    I didn't get trained in completely, everyone knew each other and it was hard to fit in and I am honestly the type of person that can get along with anyone so it sucked. My hard work hardly ever felt appreciated. I enjoyed keeping the place clean but I would still get in trouble for doing a thing or two wrong. I wanted to stay and get promoted but I guess they didn't see that in me. Scheduling was okay.. I worked pretty much full time the whole summer and it was hard to get the days I wanted off regularly.

    Advice to Management

    The management was good really. Only one of them that I didn't like, but around the time I left a lot of people had left due to moving or other reasons so it was a difficult change. I wish they would have been more prepared since they knew a lot of associates along with the assistant manager was leaving. My particular management should have hired better people at first too. It may be hard choosing people but some really bad ones were chosen and fired quick.

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

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Great team.

    Cons

    Hard for females to advance -- unless hired from outside. Year-to-year salary increases are very low (less than inflation 3%) -even when you meet/exceed your yearly goals.

    I have been working at Oakley full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get job, will hire anyone, great stepping stone in the line of manufacturing and optics, product discounts, employee gatherings, raffles at times, easy to learn, 401k plan, O+ clinic.

    Cons

    Pay is not that great, management inner circles, doing 3 jobs at once at times, management only sees mistakes, health care plan isn't great, HR not very active, Luxottica HR even worse, schedule not always told on time, days off are hard to get,

    Advice to Management

    Employees are your number 1. Listen to them. Look for employees that want to grow. Appreciate hard work and don't just look at mistakes. Make HR do their job.

    Pros

    Great people and young company for sports industry vibe. They listen to new inovative projects but also allow you to grow where you can. Great headquarters and discount.

    Cons

    Low pay, competitive personalities, low educated employees, higher management can come across as rude and insulting who have no education or experience.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees to advance their career or see what areas they would fit better with their talents. Promote raises more often to keep employees longer.

    Pros

    Great training fun coworkers. The staff had great pride int the products they were selling.

    Cons

    I did not like the products also it took a long time for me to start earning the commission. Also, there were some days people did not come into the store.

    Advice to Management

    Either pay more to employees up front and do not offer commission. Or increase advertisement and give employees the ability to earn commission faster.

    I worked at Oakley part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was my first job and they hired me with no experience. Great job especially if you are good with people. Very team-oriented.

    Cons

    Low pay when you start off. Must know product knowledge very well because it is a concrete part of the job. My raise after six months was 8 cents.

    Pros

    Oakley has been a great company to work for. Unfortunately, Lux decided to move the Service Center out of state which means I'm about to lose my job very soon.

    Cons

    Oakley has been great and I would still be employed if it weren't for Lux.
