    Pros

    U.S. Vision is a growing company with excellent benefits for their employees. I'd highly recommend it to anyone interested in the Optical field. Retail locations have flexibile full or part time hours.

    Cons

    There are not many downsides. With every business there are highs and lows. It's what you make of it that matters.

    Advice to Management

    Communication and training are most important. If you have happy, well trained staff who are compensated for their expertise, you have happy customers. Invest in your people. Happy employees make for happy returning customers.

    I have been working at U.S. Vision full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am grateful for the opportunity to work at a US Vision store. I hope to be a licensed optician soon, and I am learning some excellent skills to help me achieve that goal, I also have excellent benefits: health insurance and paid time off. How many companies out there let you have benefits, only working 25 hours a week? US Vision does.

    Cons

    The company has restructured and I have a new district manager (DM) for my region. I have heard that this is not the first time the restructuring has taken place, and that it happens every year. I really like my former DM, but I am getting to know the new DM. I think employees like some stability, but I guess change is often inevitable.
