Sub-contractor (Former Employee) –  Port Melbourne VIC30 May 2016
My role was more about maintenance and arrangements of facilities but I had wonderful exposure to the management and customer service. They treat every worker as a single family, sometime ego problem so prevail within the family and that was the hardest part of the job. However, management was so supportive and I could finish my postgraduate studies relatively comfortably because of the help I got in work-life balance while I was working there.
Pros
Onsite parking, free tea and coffee
Cons
Low pay

Optical assistant (Current Employee) –  Chermside, QLD26 June 2015
I have worked at Specsavers Chermside for over 1yr and a half, A typical day at work would include a morning team meeting before we open, then we are allocated job titles for the day. I have learnt many things about Optical services whilst working here, and also about administration type work and among many other skills. Management is okay, but not desirable as there are three directors, that can be unapproachable most of the time...

My co-workers are a joy to be around, some more than others - as we all have a bit of favouritism when it comes to friends in the workplace.

The hardest part of my job would have to be the typical one: dealing with rude and mean customers, more often then not however, they are left in a better mood as I tried to maintain and uphold customer service to the best of my ability.

The most enjoyable part of the job, would definitely have to be the free coffee's if we hit a certain target for that day.
Pros
Free coffee - Sometimes
Cons
Not enough hours, and pay

Senior Optical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Canberra15 January 2014
I really enjoyed my time at Specsavers. The work was both interesting and challenging and I really learned a lot during my time there.

A typical day for me included liaising with government organisations and clients, customer service, merchandising and general administration. My coworkers and management team were a pleasure to deal with. There was a fantastic team environment with a great support network and training opportunities.

The learning curve was a steep one and the first six months were quite challenging as the environment was so fast paced and there was a lot to learn and master but this all paid off in the end and made my time there really, really great.
