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

    Pros

    The company used to be cool, but luxottica started taking over and its corporate influence killed the fun. You get good benefits, and great discounts on product.

    Cons

    Favoritism on the managers part will determine weather your promoted or not weather or not you place top 20 in the call center like i did. Luxottica took over a lot of aspects of oakley and killed a lot of the fun that oakley did for us. Considering us and the factory workers had the worst jobs they tried their best to take care of us and give us fun things to do, but that slowly started going away and people became less and less happy and a lot of the good upper management people left due to the new ways of going about business. i left due to not being promoted because i was not brown nosing managers.

    Advice to Management

    give promotions to the better workers not your friends

    I have been working at Oakley part-time

    Pros

    The coworkers you have are one of the only great things about working for any company owned by Luxottica. The people you work with at Oakley are all people who truly live by "disruptive by design." Everyone in any store is a like minded person with similar lifestyles.

    Cons

    Just about all of upper management. Simple things that you are required to do in store get completely messed up by anyone with authority yet you are still expected to do your job right. It is very difficult to do a job for low wages, without the necessary tools, and people in upper management who literally ask you not to call with any additional questions.
