Constantly pressured to make sales and sell things that customers don't want. By far the most stressful is the Management. They delegate a lot of their own work to others, use scare tactics, and make sure you are constantly aware that they report all things to upper management or HR. The work isn't the problem here. The Management is.

The high turnover and understaffing. They don’t pay overtime. Lack of training. Toxic and negative environment.

The managet in the Largo location....what a nightmare! I loved my job until she transferred from th St Pete office. Terrible in all aspects of optical knowledge and very poor leader. Wasn't able to give 2 weeks notice when I left because of husband's fatal illness. Would like to work as part time receptionist now, but was told I shouldn't have burned my bridges by the manager in Port Richey. I am good at my job and it is so sad that there must not be any exceptions.

No matter how much you explain all the different lens options to the patients, they may decline every thing. They can then call back in 2 minutes and say they changed their mind, that they did want the anti-glare or transition lenses. This is known as a re-make. It looks bad on you even if its in NO WAY your fault. You didn't do anything wrong. But because it now must be "re-made" (even if you catch it 2 minutes after you submit the order and therefore lenses haven't even STARTED to be made) it's a re-make. And because they want money and return patients, you're wrong and the patient is ALWAYS right.
