Optical Assistant in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire
on 14 April 2021
Good place to work!
Since the management has changed it has got a lot better, it is structured but it is also a very busy store. The training is very much a necessity via a website base but we have training ongoing in store all the time. Our working environment is good but their have been staff changes. The directors are very good compared to other stores.

Enjoyed at first but bullying i wouldnt tolerate
High hopes of progressing after my job started however no time or support given unless you're face fits and you don't speak up. Bonuses got harder to reach and ended up never getting any due to targets being ridiculous.Constantly being degraded and demoralised in front of staff and customers until I couldnt take it anymore.

Do not go here
I worked at Specsavers in Crossgates, Leeds and it was the worst experience of work I’ve ever had. I worked there for 7 months (4 of which were in a lockdown) and I couldn’t wait to get out. The manager is robotic, doesn’t care about you as a person and is far too money driven. The other members off staff were nice but nobody stayed there for long. It was very obvious that the management were a problem and made people want to leave.

Depends which franchise you work for
Whilst I enjoyed my role, the director treated people very differently some got a bonus some didn't some people where treated with respect some weren't my director was very unprofessional ( I didn't realise at the time I was young and naive) he has since retired... he even complained if I took two weeks holiday rather than one..

I can hardly remember but from what I do...
A very interesting workplace with various forms of employees, contracts and obligations. A ground of people from different aspects of employment with some being contacted and others being home based. Lots of different ways you can work for these guys.
