Sunglass Hut Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Sunglass Hut is an international retailer of sunglasses and sunglass accessories founded in Miami, Florida, United States, in 1971. Sunglass Hut is part of the Italian-based Luxottica Group, the world’s largest eyewear company.
Mike angrily mentioned, "Sunglass Hut's 24 month warranty was not honored. I had a small stress crack in one lens. Brought Ray Ban sunglasses to a store for replacement. I was told that even though that 24 month warranty was on their web site, it was really only one year. I was five days after one year because they were closed for Covid-19. I will not shop at Sunglass Hut again."
Ex-funcionário - Vendedor Comissionado says"Péssima gestão, RH desqualificado, supervisores extremamente incoerentes."
Vendedor says"Salario abaixo e 1.5% de comissão sobre as vendas M"
Funcionário atual - Vendedora says"RH é péssimo, tudo demora a ser solucionado em beneficio do funcionário, mas quando é da empresa tem que ser feito em segundos, erram na folha de pagamento constatemente, atendente não tem plano de saúde. Oportunidade de carreira aqui dentro vem para você em duas condições: ou você tem que estar no lugar certo na hora certa, ou mostrar (e somente mostrar mesmo) serviço."
Funcionário atual - Engenheiro says"Clima organizacional pesado e tolerância a atitudes anti éticas"
says"Vamos pontuar por partes: -Supervisão: Este é um dos pontos mais falhos da empresa, a atual supervisão não tem nenhum preparo para a gestão, não existe gestão de pessoas, toda a decisão da atual supervisão é embasada em fofocas, na qual ela sempre optará por tomar como verdade a versão das pessoas na qual ela tem intimidade (que coincidentemente são a das gerências mais mal vistas por toda a empresa, no que tange a falta de verdade, e medidas anti éticas). -A supervisão não envia as metas e informações relevantes, e quando envia é com atraso e quando quer. Gerência: Pode se dizer que é outro ponto que precisa de amadurecimento, pois os gerentes competem entre si para ver quem ganha mais atenção da supervisão, e nisso puxam constantemente o tapete um do outro, onde não há desejo pelos bons resultados alheios. Treinamentos: Há treinamento sobre as marcas, mas curiosamente não há um treinamento técnico para o produto em si. Você descobre tudo sobre as marcas, mas não tem material de estudo para os óculos, onde poderíamos prestar ao cliente informações sobre as tendencias do produto, tamanho, ajustes perfeitos, características técnicas, material, e outros treinamentos para aprimoramento de vendas. Reconhecimento: Este é o fiasco da empresa, grandes talentos reconhecidos por toda a empresa perdem o gosto por trabalhar, pedem demissão e "adoecem neste clima tóxico", e os funcionários ruins, que nada tem a acrescentar ficam, sem fazer nada, ganhando créditos em cima de quem faz. A impressão que fica é que não e uma empresa para funcionários que tem ética profissional, aparentemente é uma empresa para quem gosta de trapaça, de mentira, de puxar o tapete, de ser totalmente o oposto do que se espera. A empresa não preza por nada, apenas pela faxada. O que e uma pena, pois tem grande nome e reconhecimento."
Vendedor Comercial says"Má condução de Pessoas, Gerentes e VRs fazem uma cúpula de ignorância com os demais. Horário Escravo."
Atendente says"Peguei um cargo inferior, não era comissionado. E de benefício recebia o vale-transporte e alimentação. Não tinha direito ao plano de saúde e premiações."
says"Como toda loja do shopping os funcionários trabalham nos fins de semana, as metas são altas mas dependendo de esforço do vendedor se consegue bater a meta"
Gerente says"Apesar da empresa está crescendo, não tem um plano de carreira para os gerentes, pois a empresa sempre pega gente de fora .Desmotivando quem esta presente e almeja uma promoção."
says"O plano de carreira é muito fraco e as possibilidades internas são poucas"
Store Manager (Former Employee) says"No work life balance. No breaks or lunches if full time. Cant call in sick no one will work the shift. Management expects associates to do all the work Discount on glassesNo breaks or lunches"
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"The manager was racist. She was exclusively nasty to POC (associates/customers). The district manager condoned her racist behavior as well. Total bullies. Great discountRacist Manager, Racist District Manager"
Agente de Ventas / Atención a cliente (Former Employee) says"Cambios de horarios sin sentido Aprendi mas por mi propia cuentaseguro y nada mashorarios sin sentido"
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) says"the worst place I have ever worked. I was an assent manager and did more work than the store manger with way less pay we had no hours and very short staff because who wants to work for 4 hours a week. the theft along is not worth the pay. I'm talking robed 2 times a week. you don't get paid enough to put your life on the line over plastic. no breaks to eat or use the restroom if someone does not show up for their shift you stay until someone shows."
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"terrible rude manager at the napa location. terrible communication. I worked there for a year and was treated horribly and they fired me out of nowhere with no explanation. couldn’t even get a text back from the manager."
Sales Associate (Current Employee) says"Management is terrible and strict. You can’t even sit down for breaks if your lucky enough to get one. Pay is terrible and “commission” is a joke. Slow 90% of the time. Only plus side is the 30% off. I’d join for that and leave as soon as I got the pair. Terrible experience all around. I’d much rather be homeless than work here. It would pay better anyway."
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"Mala paga, mal ambiente, trabajas muchas horas, mala comisión, una baba de salario y 100% nepotismoNingunoTodo, es horrible"
Key Holder/ Selling Consultant (Former Employee) says"cons. slow paced very little hrs like below 8 hrs a week! no job security at all boring alot of turn over lots of theft on the jobs too much asked from workers pros. discounts 30% off pairs the lux company overall is great"
Sales Associate (Current Employee) says"Never any breaks! not even with an 8 hour shift. If you run to the bathroom and some sunglasses are stolen, management makes you feel like you are the criminal. Very little training was given and most of it is online while you are trying to work. The workers knew more that the manager about running the store. Hours were given mostly to the manager and the rest of the workers got less than 20 hours a week!"
Manager / Sales Manager (Former Employee) says"The RM is very grandmother style when she says jump she wants to say how high. Very bad atmosphere she makes sure that's the employee don't respect the manager."
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"They over work. Under pay. And stress there employees for pennies. You don't get commission the other horrible employees don't make there daily goal it's a joke."
Store Manager (Former Employee) says"Terrible company to work for. Regional manager is a poor communicator and has unrealistic expectations. No real training offered to management or employees. Highest turn over rate I've ever seenDiscountManagement"
Associate (Former Employee) says"I would not recommend working here. Management is a complete joke and constantly has issues. The manager has called out 4 times within the past 4 weeks and gets upset when you cant cover her. There was not enough training done. I had to figure a lot of things out on my own. Its also very slow in business and the manager schedules herself at prime selling hours so you wont get any commission. I attempted to speak with the manager over the phone about some issues and shes hung up on me while i was talking . Very unprofessional and unpleasant."
Sales Associate (Former Employee) says"The manager was awful at scheduling. At the beginning when I got my job it was understaffed and as soon as we get new workers he gives your hours away to someone else.nothing good about this job."
Sales Associate and Customer Service Rep (Former Employee) says"I originally liked working at sunglasshut at Braintree mall. The new manager very unprofessional. He Made the working environment very hostile, wasn’t understanding with transportation difficulties and any scheduling issues employees needed to be corrected. Reduced hours, I had about 30 hours weekly and when he came I only got 6. The manager breathes down your sure. The only positive of this job was fellow co workers and enough store space. I also liked learning about the merchandise."
Vendedora/Dependienta (Former Employee) says"Te exigen demasiado y aun cumpliendo los objetivos no te lo agradecen de ninguna forma, solo con una sonrisa y ahí se queda la cosa. En cambio, si no lo cumples y te esfuerzas para cumplirlo, parece que lo estés haciendo todo mal. En concreto, a nivel de personal en la tienda Rambla si que es cierto que te forman mucho, pero a nivel de organización pésimo, te dan los horarios el domingo por la noche y encima tienes que ir tú detrás para que te los envien. Parece que el trabajo de las store manager y assistant les vaya la vida con los números. Si no llegan al objetivo no pueden dormir, en resumen una basura de tienda y una desorganización descomunal."
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) says"SUNGLASS HUT es una empresa muy grande, con muchos trabajadores, pero con una de las políticas de fidelidad del trabajador más pésimas que he visto. Empezando por el sueldo, que es pésimo. Por ejemplo, tendrás que ir más de un domingo a trabajar por hasta 6€ el DÍA COMPLETO... Demasiados favoritismos y menos profesionalidad y honestidad cuanto más alto es el cargo. EQUILIBRIO VIDA PRIVADA / LABORAL Olvídate de hacer cualquier plan en solitario, y para los que tengan pareja ya será imposible... Los Store Managers se preocuparán más de estar super guapos y guapas que de organizar y gestionar bien su trabajo y a su equipo... Así que tendrás un horario constantemente cambiante que no te permitirá hacer nada... SALARIO BENEFICIOS CONTRACTUALES 350€ / Mes por 20 Horas Incluyendo domingos si es necesario. Para poder llegar a ganar 100€ de comisión deberás vender aproximadamente 100 gafas… Si les entras por el ojo, porque seas muy guapa, quizás te mejoren las condiciones. ESTABILIDAD LABORAL / FACILIDAD DE PROMOCIÓN Te harán sentir una Presión Constante y fuerte... si cumples tus targets (objetivos) aunque lo hagas +200% no obtendrás ningún reconocimiento, pero si no llegas (targets que alguien impone según un historial de ventas, que la mayoría no tienen sentido, porque muchas tiendas no tienen historial y se lo inventan, con una previsión de ventas en un día de pleno verano desorbitádamente ridículas. Podrás llevar 10 años en la empresa, que podrán ponerte a un store manager sin experiencia por encima tuya, cobrando 1500€, sin ninguna explicación...Las gafasPresión incesante y sin sentido por vender"
Sales Supervisor (Former Employee) says"You're forced to make sales and forced to force the customer to walkout with something even if you know they are going to return it. Just make sure it isn't returned at this store. No room for growth, disgusting management."
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) says"Lack of employees, and lack of hours. A place you work maybe 3 days a week. No coverage, you work alone therefore a lot of theft since cases are open and the company doesn’t want to pay to have glasses covered. You get blamed.Bad management"
Gerente de Sucursal (Former Employee) says"Pésimo ambiente laboral Mucho favoritismo Ambiente tenso ovacionado por el mismo supervisor No cumplen lo que prometenPrestacionesAmbiente laboral"
Fausat Akegbejo says"Please if you are planning to buy from this dubious store, be very careful. I ordered a sunglasses for over 3 weeks now and I'm yet to receive it. Ive sent emails and no response from them. Please stay away from them. I wish I had read reviews before I made an order."
Fatih Eryilmaz says"They double charged me at the store and not helping me!!!! Store says corp office needs to help corp office says store needs to help but no help!!!! Terrible people"
Claire G says"Absolutely horrendous shopping experience with sunglass hut. Placed an order on 30th, says order processing for about a week. I contact customer services, they give a ‘brexit’ excuse and say it’ll be with me within 3 days. 3 days come and go and I email AGAIN, still say about brexit and can’t give me a date for delivery so I cancel my order. A day later my order is on the way and money been taken even though I cancelled it! Now it’s apparently my responsibility to call UPS to get the order sent back to the sunglass hut warehouse???!!! Never heard of something so backward! I’ve asked for complaints department details and been ignored... AVOID THIS SHAMBLES OF A COMPANY!!!"
William Musgrave says"This was one of my worst shopping experiences. I ordered online. I ordered a pair of Oakley's sun glasses got the confirmation email that my order will be ready in 2hours I went to the store 3 hours later they had no record of my order. Was told to call or email customer service or call I emailed and called got a recording that they will respond in 5 business days they should put that my order will be ready in 2 hours if it wont be ready for another 5 days"
Raj says"My wife gifted a product from Sunglass Hut, There was a problem with that product and contacted them on email In the email they said we can fix it and ask me to contact on customer service number s i have contacted. Sunglass Hut has worst customer service and bad attitude towards a customer, Giving a false information. I don't recommend this store or website sales."
scott smith says"Really disappointed with Sunglass Hut. Went into their Sheffield Meadowhall store in early November 2020 and spent almost £200. I was informed the item would be delivered to my home in about 5 days time. Over the next few days I received regular updates regarding the delivery. The item never arrived, and had been returned back to Sunglass Hut by the courier for a reason I still don't understand. Due to Covid the store I bought them from was closed, but I live over 200 miles away so I wasn't able to go back to the store anyway. Over the next few weeks what could only be described as a total shambles ensued which involved Sunglass Hut's customer service department being unable see anything about my or order, or even contact their own store !!!. I was eventually able to go into the store two months later and the manager did in fact call me back the next day. He shared my view that Sunglass Hut and their customer service team are shambolic. They asked him to call me a few weeks earlier but they couldn't tell him who I was, what I wanted, or even what number to call me on - they of course had all those details !. Needless to say THREE months after buying the goods ( which I never got ) I am still nowhere near getting a refund because the store is now closed back down due to the latest Covid lockdown, and the store want me to go onto them so they can process my refund - I live 200 miles away!. Of core Sunglass Hut customer services department are just incompetent so they can't/won't do anything to help. Once I have my money back I won't be buying from them again. I don't blame the local store, they are significantly let down by their own support team."
T Mak says"Wish i had read the reviews before purchasing a pair of glasses on 29/12/20 (still not arrived) apparently Brexit is the reason my glasses are delayed so i have requested a refund instead. Im astonished at how poor the communication has been so far, absolutely terrible. Never again will I return for a purchase. Still waiting for my refund."
customer says"I have ordered 2 sunglasses from Farfatch and they were send by Sunglass Hut, and only one came. The box was small so it was not possible to put both in them, even DHL have confirmed that-but still fighting more than a month for a refund."
keith mccreadie says"Placed an order for Oakley sunglasses. After 5 days the money was still pending to come out of my account. Had an email to say they had processed my order and was ready for dispatch. Next thing I know money back in my account and the sunglasses are out of stock and no email or communication to let me know why."
Joe Edgley says"Gift cards don’t work with online orders. Customer service don’t respond to emails. Now I’m stuck with $250 worth of gift vouchers I can’t use. Terrible, particularly for such a well established business."
Morgan Powers says"Honestly, this was one of my worst shopping experiences. I ordered online. My orders never said they were confirmed or on their way. Then, my order came separately at random times. Ultimately, I decided to return them and decided to do it in store to get my refund quicker. Needless to say, this did not happen. There were issues when I was returning it in store and there was no confirmation that it was returned. I was supposed to come back the next day for the manager. After talking to the manager, she believed my order went through because my order was no longer in the system. (I'm not trying to bash the store per say because they were as helpful as possible, but it has all contributed to my awful experience). After looking up my refund status online, it was completely unhelpful and didn't even have it recorded that I had even received one of the pairs of glasses. Of course they had charged me though. Anyway I reached out online and they said that they could see I made the return, but no money was being refunded. I was told they would do this. After reaching out to customer support an additional 2-3 times, I was continually promised that the money would be returned to my account. So after about 3 weeks and empty promises, I have yet to have received my money which was supposed to have happened maybe 3 days after the return. I do not plan on buying from this company ever again, and I am still hoping I get my money back."
K V P says"Ordered Ray-Ban sun glass which was on 50% sale. Today, after a week they sent me an email saying, order cancelled saying out stock. But it was in stock until yesterday. When I called Customer Support they offered 20% discount, but won't match the original sale price. Won't buy from them again."
BD says"Nightmare right from purchasing the gift card to using them for ordering in the store as sunglass gift card cant be used online. Messed up the delivery with incomplete items. Customer service team unable to help so awaiting the details of their in store smart ordering team to resolve the issue. Their systems do not talk properly. Had to go to the shop to redeem the sunglass hut voucher. Glasses were not available. Store had different prices as to what was being displayed on their website. Store staff were trying to help but they were impaired by their systems too. A word of advice for potential buyers. Avoid them like a plague. Do NOT buy their Gift Card especially if you want to purchase online. They do not make it clear that THEIR GIFT CARD CANNOT BE USED FOR PURCHASE ON THEIR WEBSITE"
Gisele Simonetti says"Like many others, I ordered my pais of sunglasses from Sunglass Hut and as they didn’t inform the complete address to UPS, my package was returned without any email or call from anybody. I contacted Sunglass Hut and explained what happened and placed a second order but it happened again! They are so careless! This would be a Christmas present and now I don’t have time to buy a replacement for it - they ruined it!!! I will never buy anything from them again and I strongly discourage everyone who is reading the reviews to buy from them! The worst company I have ever seen in the UK."
Shreenal Ghelani says"Awful, glasses never arrived and now I may have to disappoint a loved one on Christmas Day. Sunglasses hut sent a part address to ups and my parcel was lost. Tracking link emailed to me didn’t work so I typed out the tracking number into the ups website to find it had been stuck for 6 days. I called sunglasses hut who said they would check with ups, got no response for the day so I rang ups myself and was straight through to find out it had been lost. I called sunglasses hut to let them know this and now waiting for my refund for an item never received which will take approx 7 days, and have to find myself a replacement present on Christmas Eve, save yourself the pain and choose another retailer. Given how many people have said the same thing in comments here about incomplete addresses, you’d think they might bother to fix it."
Katie says"If you're thinking about buying from Sunglass Hut...don't. Sunglass Hut sent an incomplete address to UPS so my order (which was purchased over a week ago) is still stuck with the delivery company. To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. The tracking button/link in the confirmation email doesn't work. Luckily I have the 'Shop' app and was able to see the issue otherwise I would have been none the wiser. Avoid avoid avoid!"
Derby Paul says"Like with others reporting back in this site..... UPS incorrect address - But the order confirmation had my full address (Less postcode) so it was Sunglasshut who got it wrong..... But I was told that the address supplied was incorrect..... Next the replacement will not be sent until original received back in Italy! So refund - no until items are returned - Customer service - Nope no escalation call as requested.... And it was a Christmas Present.."
Customer says"Order some sunglasses as a gift, ordered on the 1st of the month and still waiting for them to be delivered. Communication has been terrible with nobody having any answers. Wouldn’t recommend!"
Graham says"Foul service from assistant. Threatened with having security called because I disagreed with Assistant at Green Hills. Never been threatened with security being called in my life. Made phone complaint. No return call yet. I made the complaint 8 weeks ago. Be very, very sure when you purchase for they will search for blemishes. This happened in my case, (even though the assistant handled the glasses a number of times and offered me another pair from the wall, which could have been handled by any number of people)."
