    I worked at 1-800 CONTACTS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hard working people all around with high standards and high expectations but both are those are paid out back to employee by the company through events and other things like that

    Cons

    Pay does not compete with other similar jobs but the benefits can sometimes make up for that.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at 1-800 CONTACTS in October 2012.

    Interview

    I was given the opportunity to apply for a position within the company. The recruiter understood that I had another job and that I would need to work around my current schedule. I had interviews at 7 a.m. to accommodate my schedule and was brought back multiple times in order to work around the various time constraints. After multiple interviews, I was offered the position and was given the opportunity to discuss the position and potential change of employment with my spouse. The benefits package was laid out clearly as was the salary.
