      Great place to learn & grow

      Pros

      Great team (dependant on store). So much to learn and achieve (health & retail aspect). Good support network. Rewarding to help customers and answer complex questions they have.

      Cons

      Immense yet avoidable pressure on staff. Very outdated software in practically every store. Contact lens queries are breaking backs of staff on the front lines. Phones ringing in stores are rapidly outpacing staff capability’s due to lack of staff and misinformed customers.

      Pros

      Vision Express have taken the time to invest in my career and opened new opportunities for me. Outside of the usual day to day role I am given the ability to work on projects and invest in my future development (no route is discouraged). No two days are ever the same, it is a really fast paced environment where we work hard and have fun at the same time. Pros: Career development, great team culture and values, and the work life balance available.

      Cons

      Only one! Our IT systems could do with being upgraded

      Pros

      Great team, supportive and caring. Lots of development opportunities. Excellent facilities ideally situated in a pleasant rural location close to home.

      Cons

      Lower than average pay. No bonuses. The job can be a mixture of too much pressure alternating with periods of calm. It's difficult to get the right balance.
