    I worked at cohens fashion optical full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Pay, but do it. Its like signing with the devil. Thats with the Main Office in NYC.

    Cons

    This is such a unethical company I have ever know. They lie and they manipulate documents and they have a very good lawyer to back them up. Anyone lasting more than a year with this company is just as unethical as they are. Going along with the program. Stay Away, they use money to trap you in the position, use you and then throw you under the bus for their misconduct. Horrible, Horrible Company. This company does not deserve one star.

    Advice to Management

    How do you all live with yourselves! How do you actually sleep at night. ????? Knowing what you do to your employees..
