Ability to work independently and as part of a team is essential!
Optician/ Receptionist (Current Employee), 60160November 1, 2014
Cons: limited room for advancement, but job security is great.
You work independently for the post part trying to make sales and submit your insurance claims. It can get pretty busy, so it's important to be able to manage yourself in high stress level situations.

Many responsibilities given to one manager
General Sales Manager (Former Employee), Lancaster, PAOctober 23, 2014
I was asked to run two separate locations, temporarily, which i gladly did. It the became a permanent situation where I was accountable for filling the appointment book for both doctors. Approve all insurances for both the doctors exam and for the glasses/contacts on the retail side.

The most difficult part of this job was the initial training for all of the optical information.

The most enjoyable part of this job for me, was helping individuals get fit into their new lenses and sending them on their way!
