fabulous team
Loved working with the team we all got on so well, we were required to book patients in for appointments, pre test them before the optician saw them and then help with choices of lenses and frames to suit their prescriptions. The prospects for young people joining this organisation are fantastic, I personally felt that trying to balance my home life and a very busy job was too much for me at this time but would have no hesitation recommending this organisation.
Pros
fabulous team members
Cons
very stressful at times

Very nice team to work with
A typical day at work consisted of cleaning, shadowing and sorting appointments. I gained a lot of customer skills. The co-workers were lovely to work with.
