Pros: being free of visionworks
Cons: illegal and unethical practices, failure to train properly, hostile work environment; age discrimination
If I could give NEGATIVE stars, I would. I am a recent Eyewear Specialist. The bottom line is money and sales. Sadly,the patient is not the primary concern. Management is so poor that it does more harm than good. I had to beg to be trained on their dinosaur doss computer system and still was ignored because I was "only part time" and older. So, I was not allowed to do sales. When I complained to management, I was told I had not met my sales quota. I was still in training. I did not even know what they were talking about! My hours were cut last week down to...wait for it..ZERO hours. I was lucky if I got 10 hours a week. I signed on for 20 to 25 hours weekly...not ZERO! How do you make a sales quota when you never work and are not trained to do the sales? Dumbfounding dilemma. Then the new GM came on board. He was useless. I knew more than he did and I did not know that much. All he did was cut employee hours to make his "bottom line." The manager resented his being brought in from outside. Employees were caught in the middle of this drama. What a mess. I am out of there and have filed a claim against the company. Their business practices are unethical to the point of illegal. BTW, I was going toward the restroom on my way out and was told by management that if I tried to use the restroom, they would call security! Why? Because, when I left I was "no longer an employee." These people are sick and petty. They try to squeeze you out when business is slow by giving you no hours, hoping you will quit so they don't have to pay unemployment. DO NOT WORK FOR VISIONWORKS!!! They do not deserve to be in business. They also have an "F" rating with the BBB. It does not get worse than that. BEWARE.
