Corporate Sales Specialist/Scheduler (Former Employee) – Palm Springs, FL 33461 – September 15, 2017
It was a nice relaxed place to work until they laid everyone off and outsourced our jobs to another country! They gave adequate training to do our jobs and then of course I was doing a new position never done before but it worked out. Around the holidays they had great prize give a way's as well.
Cut throat and unorganized micro managed at its best
General Manager (Former Employee) – Ridgeland, MS – October 12, 2017
Company is a fairly new and fast growing company. Makes lots of promises that they can not stand behind at least in Mississippi . They have several questionable work practices that is a very fine line between legal and insurance fraud. This also keeps associates sales at a lower scale since they can't properly file insurance for patients and the store does not receive the sales reimbursement .
Closed on Sunday
Short to no breaks . Unrealistic goals . No 401k match . Very high insurance premiums .
Optician (Former Employee) – Fresno – September 9, 2017
If you were without a job and starving in the streets I would stay in the street and NEVER work for this company. Ripping off customers,unethical ownership and a work ethic revolving around making the most and you getting less. STAY AWAY!!!
OPTICIAN (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – August 21, 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed the first few months at stanton. I learned quickly and enjoyed what I was doing. However management was lacking and there were definitely some inner issues that needed to be resolved.
General Manager (Current Employee) – United States – August 15, 2017
pay is great but support is non existent. Unrealistic goals. GM is in charge of everything even though the company has departments to handle challenges like Dr scheduling. Employees on the field are in the same boat so its fun to work in the stores but working after hours and from home makes it tiring.
Good place to work. Management and coworkers are professional and nice. Typical day is checking insurance, pretesting patients, checking them out and handing them off to the optical sales staff to assist with frame styling and lens selection.
OD Technician (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – June 23, 2017
Management tells employees to lie to patients to get more money. Doctors and OD Techs are treated poorly daily by management. Corporate office lies to patients about non existing sales in the store just to get people to come in. Corporate also lies about insurance coverage basically saying that we accept all insurance when we don't. So when people come in they get angry with us and feel like their being deceived (which they are). The pay is not worth the stress. Also management contradicts themselves all the time and plays favorites. Stanton Optical is a complete joke and I would never advise anybody to work there. Nobody there has worked over a year because of the way the company runs. Within 5 years they have had 9 GMs. I was very depressed when I worked there.
Management is good at this place. There is not enough staff and all employees have been working almost 50 hour work weeks for 4 months now!! I love my job but I cant take the hours anymore. I need a work life balance. I feel like I live at work and have no good life balance. But as far as the company I cant talk bad they have done nothing unfair or wrong to me
Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – June 3, 2017
As one of the most experienced individuals on site, the company does not reward working hard. It rewards you if you're a friend of management and nepotism is rampant. Short cuts are taken for the sake of money and there is no real certification or licensing within the staff. Higher ups care only for money and have told everyone that they are replaceable. Terrible benefits and no raises. EVER.
Works around schedules
Terrible benefits, no job advancement, nepotism, illegal acts
A terrible place to work. Management uses their power to make your life miserable. Often pushed into high pressure sales. Customers are often taken advantage of and there is very little concern for a customer after the sale is concluded. If you are thinking of applying...DONT.
Hostile work environment, low pay, lack of respect for employees
