Senior Model Store Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – July 26, 2018
The life of a store manager for Sunglass Hut is determined by your Regional Manager. My last regional manager was the best as I was allowed to manage my store. I was provided with the job expectations and expected to perform to those standards. I provided weekly feedback sessions and was allowed to manage. The regional manager before this, in the same market, made life miserable by micromanaging every aspect of the position. We had to run every decision through her- recruiting, hiring, staffing, and supply fulfillment of the store. We were told when to work and then hounded about performance figures that were outside of our control.
Cashier (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 10, 2018
The main reason I left was because of the push to sell credit cards by corporate. Customers would get extremely agitated and management would come down on employees if quotas weren't being met. But, the coworkers were fantastic, and there were many opportunities for career advancement.
Great place to work if you like a fast paced environment
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Bluffton, SC – May 6, 2018
I was blindsided by Sunglass Hut when I started. I did not know the benefits that came along with working for Luxottica. Great insurance, fun work team and awesome Regional Managers. The discounts are a plus and learning about vision and eye care along with brands is really exciting. Stressful at times with managing and scheduling store hours but its worth it in the end. Great place for advancement and you have so many options all over the WORLD.

this job has tough me how to deliver customer service and responsibility, it is a good part time job if you go to school or if you have another job, but its not a good job if you wish to live of the paychecks and pay bills i hardly get 300 and that's just not even enough for rent
free pair of sunglasses once a year, regular eye exams
Employee/ Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Anaheim, CA – March 27, 2018
I had fun working but it's only because of my coworkers. hard to move up especially if management holds grudges against you for doing your job. You do experience entry level sales and customer service here.
I loved working here and learned so much about sales and management.
Sales Associate, Manager (Former Employee) – Lexington, KY and Palo Alto, CA – March 20, 2018
My last year there our District and Regional managers had a high turnover and were not seeing eye to eye which made working with them a burden. Typical day was of course sales and paperwork. Everyone on our team was amazing to work with, like a little family. I'd say the hardest part was the last year. Most enjoyable part was our team and selling sunglasses.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 14, 2018
As a 19 yr old working for a major company, selling high end accessories, I felt proud at first. As i worked there for over a year, i realized that the management team didn't motivate us to do anything other than sell and even after selling thousands of dollars in sunglasses, we were only given $100 or so in commission due to the low percentage. It was very competitive between associates and managers played favorites. I enjoyed the high end experience, selling to people who weren't knowledgable of the benefits of different kinds of glasses. I enjoyed dressing well and the overall atmosphere of the largest Macy's in the world!!
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Richmond, CA – March 12, 2018
It was a great learning experience. Having to communicate with more than 7 people at a time plus answering calls was a success. I was always on time and maintaining my area clean was my biggest responsibility.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Humble, TX – March 7, 2018
I had a blast working for the company. Very positive and great community feel. Biggest issue personally was lack of upward mobility possibilities. If able to relocate then not an issue but otherwise jobs above store manager are almost non existent. In my area at least if your wanting district manager or to go away from the retail channel relocation is the only option.
MANAGER (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – March 1, 2018
Working for Sun Glass Hut was a good experience. If you enjoy meeting people and helping to choice wisely to look their best and that is what I did. Have to be diligent to watch over products, easier to work in a store location than it was in the open Mall area kiosk.
Working with a good group of people, discounts on major brand glasses, meeting people
On feet all day, not much time for lunch, trying to cover store with minimum hours.
