PALM BEACH GARDEN Why are you selling eyeglasses when you could be selling eyewear? Why are you selling the same brand names with the same styles in the same colors everyone else does when you could be changing lives? If you understand the difference quality designs using quality materials, combined with quality optics, precision crafted and custom fit can make in each person’s life, you might be right for us.

Palm Beach Garden’s newest and most unique high end optical shop is looking for an experienced Optician to make our practice the best in south Florida. Our ideal candidate is someone who lives, breathes and dreams optical. Someone who wants to reach through the TV or magazine to straighten the glasses of people they see with bad fits. Someone who helps a waiter or waitress with their glasses during dinner. Someone who is always looking how to make a friend and make a sale.

We are looking for that exceptional individual who is friendly, professional, outgoing, enthusiastic, team-oriented and reliable, who longs to be the best, working for the best, to make a difference in people’s lives. You could be the reason your client gets straight A’s in school, gets a promotion, or even gets married.

Of course you will have terrific interpersonal skills, exceptional dedication to customer service, have a good grasp on current trends in eyewear, and optical technologies, gained over the last 5+ years in optical sales, with a willingness to learn even more. Our ideal candidate would be a self-starter who when not selling is cleaning shelves and finishing necessary paperwork and forms. Our ideal candidate would be meticulous in how they show and sell product and how they keep our store neat and clean. Our ideal candidate would know nothing in a small practice is beneath them and strive to know that this could be their ideal opportunity to become more and make more through their hard work, finding an optical home second to none.
