Employee Review

    Overworked and underpaid

    Pros

    Working with some nice people. Helping customers and getting to know people. Interesting job, not as repetitive as other retail jobs Usually getting positive feedback from assistant managers when you do a good job

    Cons

    Pay is abysmal for the amount of work you do and the responsibility you have. Expected to retain alot of information and have a higher skill set compared to other retail jobs but the pay is the same if not worse. Work load is constantly increased and optical consultants have just been informed they do not qualify for a pay review/raise so more work for the same pay. No routes for progression as all the assistant managers have just been made redundant and other potential training courses have been cancelled.
