I looked forward to going to work everyday.
Pros: health benefits, comissions, free lunches, paid travel time
Cons: working 7 days a week, long hours
My typical day at work started with morning meetings, checking any messages on voicemail, greeting any customer that needed assistance, and preparing the optometrist for there day. I learned that communication, organization, time management, schedule making, and a great staff can make a job easy and successful. As a manager although it may be challenging at times I enjoyed being able to resolve customer issues as well as show my employees how to resolve any issue whether it be a customer issue, adjusting glasses, how to prepare the doctor for day, or using the computer. The hardest part of my job was when the customer was not satisfied. Although it may have been disappointing for the customer and I, I got to know a lot of great people. The most enjoyable part of my job was all the great people I got to work with as well as my customers. My job allowed me to sit down with people discuss and inform people about what they were investing, being satisfied with there investment, and returning for any optical needs.
