Good Money

The money is good and the foundation to retirement with this company is great. The managers dont take into consideration an employees ideas of making production flow easier or things that might save breakage. After awhile you just realize to just show up and work and keep your mouth closed. Unless you are the owners friend your opinion doesnt matter. Communication is a big issue in general but as they say if your not around then your not in the know! A weekly or monthly meeting would be great.

Pros

Great Pay and Incentives

Cons

Lack of communication

They dont get life happens

They dont understand that life happens being a single mom I found it hard to make them understand that things happen and things come up. I also had major surgery due to cancer and was penalized for that

Self Promoting Company

Verified Employee

A typical day at Cherry Optical is exciting, unexpected, new, fulfilling and rewarding. Work hard, love what you do, and you'll be rewarded not only by this company, but more importantly how you feel every day coming into work knowing you will learn something new. Cherry Optical brings out the best in everyone, encouraging self promotion from within. They provide all the tools, provide the training, and even pay for you to get your certification. If you have the drive to self improve, they will help you achieve it.

Overall a great place to work and make a career out of it.

Verified Employee

This is a busy, fast paced company with major opportunity for a career and future in optics. There are as many overtime hours as you want, and you are making the world a better place for others to see. The insurance is not that good, but they do pitch in some for an HSA. This is the only draw back as of now. The best part of the job is you can get out of it exactly what you put in- so it is up to you!

Seeing is believing

Verified Employee

Great working environment with great people who also want you to succeed with the team. I started with no experience in the industry and was able to quickly learn the main concepts as well as some of the more complex issues that can arise in the manufacturing and finishing of optical lenses - there always seems to be something new to explore. Management seems fair and also generous with sharing the company's success. While some growing pains do exist the management team is receptive to ideas while also trying to balance the workflow to get quality products to our customers. I really don't think there is a hard part of my job, but, It is still challenging because there is a plethora of work and special jobs are becoming more common. My coworkers (including managers), the variety of music, and the occasional free lunch and frequent treats make Cherry Optical a relaxed but focused workplace.

Cherry optical

Verified Employee

Cherry Optical is an amazing place to work for. I have always wanted to work for a company, where I loved what I was doing and who I was doing it for. I have found this at Cherry optical. There are not many places where you can say you feel loved and appreciated as if you were really part of the family that started it.

The Cherry team

Verified Employee

This company is growing bigger and bigger each day, but they stick to their beliefs and values to each and every person working hard at their business. It is a family owned company and it really does feel like a family, the owners are very welcoming and are hands on in the workplace. Each day is different, but you're always busy so the day will fly by fast, and busy means job security. All of the employees are nice, laid back, and like to joke around. Yes, you are very busy everyday, but we make it fun so it doesn't feel like you're just stuck in a job you hate. Management is involved to listen to any issues or suggestions, and they're all really really nice. You will be trained and taught everything needed to succeed here, plus it's not a stuffy stiff work environment, so learning is fun when you feel at ease. Everybody at this company makes sure it runs smoothly, we're a big team and close to family! Honestly this is the best place I have ever worked, you feel valued and are treated with respect.
