Eye mart can be a great place to work, if your significant other has a job that offers good pay and benefits. Can be a very competitive work environm.
Optometric Assistant (Current Employee) – Ohio – May 10, 2017
I've worked for Eyemart going on 17 months. I enjoy my job and what I do. The ppl I work with are great for the most part too. There are a few ppl that are involved in workplace drama, but you're going to have that anywhere you go. That being said, the pay isn't the greatest. You start off at minimum wage. After you are trained you receive a monthly bonus. If you're in the lab or front desk, it's a pool bonus, which is usually around $100-$150. If you are out front on the sales floor you do have potential to make a little more money. The sales ppl make a monthly spiff that is commission based off your sales. It can be a very competitive environment, but for the most part a fun place to work. There isn't much room for advancement, and if you do get a chance to advance, the raises are an absolute joke. If I find something with better pay I will move on, like anyone would. If I'm being honest I will be sad to go, because my coworkers are amazing. They are the reason I've stayed as long as I have.
Good environment, paid sick & personal time after 6 months
