Company Culture

Luxottica is an excellent company as the Parent company of Sears Optical. My frustration was never with them.

Support from management

Argumentative, indecisive and hostile.

Teamwork

Was never consistent or fairly divided.

Freedom to work independently

Yes and no. This falls under the failure of mangement to be decisive. One minute it's ok to take initiative on tasks, the next minute it wasn't. Or, by taking initiative would result in being accused of failing to do another task. Always felt like a no-win situation.

Gender Equality

This was not a problem

Attitude towards older colleagues

Not sure about this one.

Career Development

Under the right management and training, and a love for this type of work, there are excellent opportunities to move up.

Office / Work Environment

UNORGANIZED, TIME MANAGEMENT was horrible, from over-booking eye exams to letting work get significantly behind, filthy carpeting, poor filing system - cramming charts in to envelopes a fourth of the size of the charts, meaning folding each and every document that needed to be filed with it and over-stuffing them, etc., etc.

Environmental Friendliness

Staff and manager were always moody creating a stressful and chaotic atmosphere. Our desks and furniture were shoddy and outdated. The store is filthy and very dusty, but no time to clean when your way over-booked and behind on work.

Work-Life Balance

Scheduling was a disaster, ranging from 3 days off in a row to one day off every 3 or 4 days.

Company Image

I believe Luxottica has a very good image; however, Sears Optical, has the lowest ratings in sales and positive feedback from customers.

Job Security

Depends largely on sales.

Workplace Safety

Questionable, with how filthy the store is, it could be a health hazard, and with the adjacent rooms cluttered from the floor up, could be a tripping hazard.

Challenging Work

Neutral on this because I believe I received very poor training which made a lot of work too challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

This was not a problem.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Stronger management, proper training techniques, a nice, fresh and clean store, and attitude improvements overall.

What I like about the company

Benefits, starting pay, potential career opportunites.

What I dislike about the company

At my store location, my whole experience was not likable.

Inclusive / Diverse

could use work accepting employee input

Suggestions for improvement

  • Be understanding of circumstances and listen to suggestions. explain policy more than vague explanations in a handbook that refers to policy that in not available to employees unless requested. how are we to know unless we're given the opportunity to educate ourselves

What I like about the company

Great starting pay and bonuses. Most benefits begin on date of hire. Insurance for unmarried couples. Onsite breastfeeding room. Fun holiday events and gifts. Free vision care. great environment. unique benefits and shift schedules.

What I dislike about the company

Attendance policy is horrible and unfair and should take circumstances into account. If you have a doctor's note saying you cannot work or should not count against your points. otherwise what is the point in getting the note. disciplinary process in nonexistent and steps should be followed. there's no warnings few chances to correct or become aware of an issue.

The following perks were offered to me

On site cafeteria is offered Free (company provided) Meals is offered Health and wellness programs is offered Employee discounts is offered Employee events is offered

Company Culture

The company is incredibly inflexible when it comes to dealing with employee issues such as personal injury. They do the bare minimum to avoid lawsuit

Teamwork

Managers often were the sources of interpersonal conflict

Freedom to work independently

Managers micromanaged heavily

Internal Communication

Managers would often not tell employees of issues until the consequences were catastrophic

Gender Equality

Very often women would be harassed by male managers

Attitude towards older colleagues

Nope, especially if they were women cause the managers would bend over backwards for young women they found attractive

Career Development

They existed but it was difficult to get the training needed from the Training Team if the manager didnt like you to the point they would ignore the team

Overall compensation for your work

Paid well and decent benefeots

Office / Work Environment

The lab was comfortable enough.

Work-Life Balance

3 day schedule meant long hours but the 4 days off was nice

Company Image

No, it was actually a pretty terrible place to work 3ven without considering they had an effective monopoly on eyeglasses

Job Security

They churned through employees

Workplace Safety

There were policies in place but often ignored.

Inclusive / Diverse

I was afraid to come out as transgender

Suggestions for improvement

  • Better systems of accountability for managment

What I like about the company

It pays well and their is comrade amongst the non management staff

What I dislike about the company

There needs to be more accountability from managers, cause as it stands everything gets blamed on the lab workers and the managers get away with blatant favoritism Nd harassment
