Demand for higher sales is never ending. The quality of product provided leaves much to be desired. They always want higher number than last year, but it is hard with so many competitors and customers getting laser eye surgery. Few people know about us as we are tucked away in a corner of the main store. Also this job starts you at minimum wage and customers expect you to really know your stuff or have a degree, but you are only a sales person and do basic repairs and measurements. Two of the opticians I worked with ended up being very fake with me. I do not have pleasant memories about working here, but hey if you are in need of some kind of money, it beats breaking rocks in the hot sun. My hours were constantly being cut, the pay was unstable and I made about $8,400 annually.
Sometimes, it's slow and you can relax a bit
You are often alone to deal with agitated customers with little guidance from management
