"I worked for Sunglass Hut for over 3 years. Although this doesn't match the criteria you're looking for in a job I showed my full dedication reaching sales goals and communicating with customers. This job received my full potential as you will as well. I focused on communicating correctly in order to make the perfect sale and always showed up ready to work. I gained many other skills here as well such as time management, organization, and technical."

"It was a good experience working at sunglass hut, I lured customer service skills. I also enjoyed helping people find what they wanted and got to know the brands. Some of the brands I worked with Prada, Gucci, Ray-Ban, and Oakley just to name a few. Overall I enjoyed my experience at Sunglass Hut."

"The people who work within the corporate office are lost when it comes to running a company many of the policies are not relatable in the real world. The changing needs (coupons/ deals) of customers is not being met. There is a severe lack of proper training not just with employees but with upper management. Also specific needs to stores is not considered, open concept stores are not suitable to many locations, often loss prevention issues are not considered when it comes to store concepts. Also the human resources department is biased often ignoring the needs of the associates in favor of the wants of upper management."

"I very much enjoy working here. The atmosphere is excellent, the staff I work with are all very enjoyable to be part of a team with. It will be hard to leave once I've found a career job, but I will keep in contact with all the staff. They've become a family to me."

"I've worked for Sunglass Hut for almost 4 years. I've outlasted some managers and have had opportunities to move up, but I wasn't prepared then. Now I'm at a point where there's no point for me to be there when I don't get enough hours even though I'm juggling between two locations to make up for the hours being cut. Any opportunity to move up that was promised hasn't been fulfilled like stated. Other than that, working here is fine, but wanting to build a career is hard when you're unheard."

"Sunglass Hut has been a great job for me as a student, even though the pay isn't that great. My former manager was amazing and was really flexible with my hours. There's just not a good/easy way to move up, and regional people can be really pushy. If you're not materialistic, they look down on you, telling everyone about it. If you're really into fashion, high maintenance, etc. then you'll love it. I'm just not a big fan of sunglasses, even though the products really are superior to elsewhere."

"It was a pretty horrible experience which nobody should have to deal with."

What do you like about working at Sunglass Hut?

"I liked my first manager who was honest, friendly and really cared about the job."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Ask about the real hours and sales goals. Ask about how many old friends the manager has working for him or her. RUN AWAY FROM THE DOWNSTAIRS DANBURY CT STORE!!"

What don't you like about working at Sunglass Hut?

"Most of the employees were high school friends who sold for each other to make it look like they reached their goals, gave each other the best sales day hours, and basically sabotaged anyone who wasn't part of their click. The acting manager was a complete control freak, dishonest and thought her position was sooo important that it permitted her to mistreat employees. The Regional Manager was rude and thought nothing of calling out employees in a disrespectful way...even in front of customers. Again, another power hungry person who truly believed she could mistreat anyone she wanted..just because. This was a truly terrible work environment and even discriminatory with nasty comments made about customers and other employees ALL OF THE TIME."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Become human beings. You really are not all that important! Show some respect and kindness toward your employees and STOP the dishonesty and sabotage."
