    Pros

    In my experience, you really get to bond through the good and bad with the people you work. Fortunately, the location I was at had a great group of people.

    Cons

    I personally do not feel like there's much room to move upwards. I feel like I could have been more involved in the tech part and learned much more had they had a different set up. I was at a franchise so it might be different at another location. Also, depending on where the Pearle Vision is, the customers could be friendly to downright rude.

    I worked at Pearle Vision full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Highly in-demand brand name frames and sunglasses, easy to use computer ordering system. Some of the most effective managers I've ever had.

    Cons

    Commission began as more generous, then was adjusted store wide, and retail hours were long, as they share shopping mall hours.

    Advice to Management

    Had great managers.

    Pros

    I love the people I work with and my boss is really great. It's a really friendly atmosphere. I like working in the office and with customers. I've been here one year now. My hours are part-time and flexible. Always a busy environment, the days go by really fast.

    Cons

    Hours are long and no chance to move up in the store. Everyone basically has there roll in the store and no room for advancement.
