Eyewear Specialist (Former Employee) – Newnan, GA – February 15, 2018
If you are good at sales and like a low commision percentage than this is for you. If you like working weekends and some holidays this is for you. If you have optical knowledge and would like a job in that field, Vision Works may be for you.
Contact lens consultant/Apprentice (Current Employee) – Webster, NY – January 18, 2018
Worked for Visionworks for 2 years. Worst management experience. Poor ethics and communication between company and employee. Lack of respect for each person and customer. Coworkers we're the only way you could stay as long.
Retail Supervisor (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – January 11, 2018
When I started with this company it was a new field for me, I learned a lot had a great teacher/mentor within the company, Room for advancement if you made you required goals. It was a little cut throat between the sale goals you needed to maintain, My general manager was willing to educate teach and develop the employees.
OPTOMETRIST TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Hillside, IL – January 8, 2018
Good PTO and vision insurance, both full time & part time employees receive this. Typical shift is 8hrs. Training is not the best, you learn by doing tasks yourself. Learned a lot about optometry and vision insurance. Hardest part about this job is understanding & explaining vision insurance. Flexible schedules.
lab tech (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – January 4, 2018
Vision works was a good place to work, i was constantly busy with hardly any down time which made time go by fast, there were a lot of expectations and goals that had to be met. There was lots of room for advancement as well.
A typical day was hectic. i learned alot about vision. The management was mostly concerned with sales. The workplace culture was friendly but competitive. The hardest part of the job was making sales. The most enjoyable part of the job was peolpe being happy with their purchase.
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) – Waldorf, MD – December 12, 2017
I think it was a good place to work, but it wasn't a career. This job is good for temporary work. It was a good step to getting your foot in the door. The pay wasn't good and the hours put in weren't enough to benefit me as a single mother and parent.
Eyewear Specialist, Front Desk, OD Technician (Former Employee) – Brandon, FL – December 7, 2017
When Corporate mistakenly terminated me when I transferred from MD to FL they wouldn't fix it. I signed the transfer paper work and everyone knew months in advance. I did start work in Tampa but, after few wks they told me about the mistake and I couldn't return until I went through the rehiring process. I did the rehire kit but it was taking wks and I needed income. I called and told them I wasn't coming back.
Love working people
They give 15 mins for each patient and sale quotes are high
Optician/ Third-Key manager (Current Employee) – Greeley, CO – September 17, 2017
The manager is not very easy to work with. Most of the employees do not like her. I'm surprised she is still there. Several people have quit because of her alone. The job is actually nice if they had a different manager.
