John | Austin, TX

Company-paid ABO testing and a stipend for ongoing and continuing education for Opticianry are great and there are countless opportunities to grow within the company. I have been in optics for 27 years and being an Optician at Warby Parker for the last four years is proving to be the most satisfying.

What you'll do:

Optical duties
  • Work directly with customers to help meet all of their eyewear needs
  • Take and record measurements, adjust and fit eyewear, and execute these details with flawless accuracy
  • Check that our finished eyewear meets our optical standards, as well as customer requirements and requests
  • Use your expertise to explain prescription terminology and product offerings to customers
Leadership responsibilities
  • Set your store up for success each day by ensuring that all operational, service, and staff zoning procedures are executed to Warby Parker standards
  • Drive the store vision and sales by providing above-and-beyond service on the floor and acting as the main contact for customer and operational questions
  • Work with store management to lead and mentor the Optical team, including participants of our Optician Apprentice Program, and exemplify what great service looks like
  • Help maintain general store systems, inventory databases, and business operations
  • Foster and support a productive, positive employee culture in your store

Who you are:

  • A licensed dispensing optician in states that require a license (or an ABO-certified optician in non-licensing states) with 2+ years of experience, including supervisor responsibilities
  • Passionate about the eyewear and retail industries
  • A clear, effective, and professional communicator—you can break down technical terms for customers to easily understand
  • Dedicated to going above-and-beyond to make customers (and your teammates!) happy
  • An energetic, positive team player who’s able to adapt in a fast-paced, ever-changing work environment

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
