    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Visionworks (San Antonio, TX (US)).

    Interview

    First step is to apply online or to go in store and grab an application. When they are actively hiring, you should expect a call within 3 days. If they aren't currently hiring, expect a call a few months later asking if you are still interested in the position. A background check will be done as well as a drug test. The process will last maybe a week or two after the first interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Visionworks (Hauppauge, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Telephone & in person interview. All standard boiler plate stuff. Nothing unusual or unexpected except the animal question but the interviewer was clearly reading off a script and filling in boxes. Don't worry, they need you more than you need them.

    Interview Questions

    • What animal would you want to be if you could? :/   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They claim "the union" will not allow negotiations but then you find out later they lied.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Visionworks (Milwaukee, WI (US)).

    Interview

    Interview was ok. But after five or six days, general mgr. of my store had not gotten back to me, so I called her. She seemed annoyed that I called, simply to ask if she had hired anyone yet. Finally she called me after almost two weeks and told me I was hired but I had to wait about six more days until I was able to start the job! I had desired to start several days earlier, as I needed the income a.s.a.p. and I was excited about the new job!

    Negotiation

    I was left with no room to negotiate, but I believe the hourly wage was fair.
