fun work place
Web Content Specialist (Former Employee) –  Northbrook, ILMarch 10, 2017
great place to work, perks of the job were fantastic, the work was good and fun and enjoyable, the people who work there are great, very nice and helpful, hardest part of the job is training or lack there of. everyone learns at a different pace and the lack of fully extensive training is lacking. they might think it's easy to do, but for someone who's never done it before, it can be overwhelming when they expect you to learn everything in less than 90 days
Pros
wear jeans, T-shirts and gym-shoes everyday
Cons
unfair pressure to learn everything in shortest time possible

Good Place to Launch Your Career in Online Retail
Web Content Specialist (Current Employee) –  Northbrook, ILMarch 10, 2016
I enjoyed working at OpticsPlanet although many people said that they felt they were doing more than their share of work. Efficiency and accuracy came with their share of rewards and I did get promoted, albeit after a long time of working at OP. If you are a vigilant worker and demonstrate innovative ways to improve the quality of your work and of those around you, you become a valuable worker and are rewarded. If you stagnate and expect to be rewarded for providing the same service for a long period of time, vertical motion is unlikely. To be honest though, this would be the case in many medium and small sized companies.

Great workplace with flexibility and a chance to gain great industry experience. Great for people starting their career and looking to build their resume. OpticsPlanet allows employees to grove and get involved in multiple area. You never feel like you are getting pigeon holed into one repetitive task.

Frivilous Place
Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) –  Northbrook, ILMay 1, 2015
A typical day at work includes chaos and lack of organization.
Its cubicle center, and you hear everything from everyone, There is constant loud aura there, and of course the whispering never stops. 8 out of 10 people around you that pretend they are your friends are not. Everyone complains how much they do and dont get recognized..It was like being in a Eastern European cult.
Pros
can play ping pong during lunch
Cons
Noisy and lack of direction place
