Model of Company is awesome, Compensation for Employees Horrible.
Cons: compensation, commission, and insurance
Nation Vision is the forth Largest Optical Company. With a model for its retail divisions are great. Americas Best with the 2 pair for 69.95 and free exam, Eyeglass World with the BOGO. just to name a few. I enjoyed working for them I learned a great deal as far as eye health and care. But at the end of the day I felt like all I did for them I wasn't compensated the best. They start you out at part time, min wage after a year you receive about a quarter raise. If you are chosen to be thirdkey you receive a $1 raise but if you step down from that position you lose the $1 raise. If you want full time you have to fight for it. Don't expect to have a life either you are required to work weekends and Holidays, they only close 3 times a year Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, and New Years Day. Some locations are open 7 days a week. The general managers are great and knowledgeable, some Assistant Managers need to be educated more as a lot of them have no clue. Working for this company gives experience to those needing medical field experience. But if you are a 1 income family, I suggest you look else where as it will be hard to support your family. All and all its a good company to work for but they need to learn how pay their employees better.
