    I have been working at Visionworks part-time

    Pros

    Vision insurance kicks in after 30 days. Fantastic plan, covers annual exam and contacts or glasses. Pay is hourly minimum wage with some level of commission (usually around 2%)

    Cons

    They do not offer full time positions to sales associates, so many work at least another job. No established paid vacation days, and even if I work a 10 hour day, only get a half hour lunch break. Schedule is not consistent at all.

    Advice to Management

    Have contracts readily available online to be accessed by employees.

    Pros

    Good place to work as part-time optician. Paid time off compensation with good commission incentives! Flexible work hours for part-time associates.

    Cons

    As with most corporate jobs, a lot of focus is placed on performance with percentages and numbers when evaluating everything! Let's celebrate just being a number!

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced managing licensed opticians to manage other Licensed Opticiains and optical staff. Also, better training is needed for new hire!
