Stressful with no promotion

A stressful experience with zero benefits except the opportunity to discover Dubai and develop the communication skills otherwise the working environment in such company is absolutely stressful and abusive (half day off “ Friday morning is a half day off, then duty starts at 3pm till midnight)

Good work environment; i learned a lot from them.

Since Dar optics is my first experience at an optical, i have learned al my optical knowledge here.From training and seminars that the company provides; and the practical learning i got from listening to the Optometrists that i worked with. I enjoyed my stay in Dar Optics, from dealing with customer complain; although i must say its quite hard but with the proper communication with them all will be resolved. Good relation with my colleagues was the enjoyable part of my stay as a sales executive.

Pros

good working relationship with colleagues

Cons

no full day off

Productive

When I work in Dar Optics I can say that i had fun and happy, I developed my self and become matured being a person, I learned dealing to a different staff outgoing and incoming, different types of customers. To deal in a different clients and customer is the hardest part specially to face the problems and complaints of the customers. The Management is good, my co workers is tough enough for me, we are all friendly and had respect to each other. I most enjoyed when i was working with them especially when the time for giving the bonus and commissions at the end of the month.

Pros

with commissions and bonuses

Cons

Split shift
