Essilor is a good company, but it's partner labs can be challenging
District Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  New JerseyJanuary 23, 2018
Initially, my on boarding and training has been very disorganized and a sense of complacency. The training and support was very low,
In the last 4 months, I've had 3 managers, 2 people resigned and I have had my territory reorganized. There has been limited communication and not alot of room for advancement.
Perhaps moving forward, it will settle down.
Pros
unlimited vacation and free lenses
Cons
highly competitive, unethical and confusing business model

Good place to work
Credit/ Collections Administrator (Former Employee) –  Greensboro, NCSeptember 15, 2017
Hours were from 8 to 5. Went by fairly quickly. Allowed to work on my own with little supervision. Able to make many decisions on my own. Able to get assistance if ever needed. Month end was hardest part of job but also most enjoyable because of teamwork. Company treated employees to lunch of your choice each month end. Classes and seminars made available to all employees who wished to improve job skills.
Pros
Free lunches, free glasses every year for each employee. Discounts for family members. Wage increase each year.
Cons
Took away Christmas bonus

Accounts Payable/Receivable Specialist (Current Employee) –  Rhode islandAugust 16, 2017
This company will burn you out faster than a 400 degree oven. They give little regard to employees, raises are pitiful, workload is gargantuan, the only benefit is a flexible managerial staff because they are also overworked
Pros
flexibility
Cons
