Warby Parker

apprentice optician

What I liked

I enjoy the atmosphere and the overall environment of Warby Parker. My team has been excellent. Also, my role makes me feel indispensable in this field.

What I wish was different

I have nothing to complain about this except for the commute. I live in Fairfield but I work in Greenwich.

Advice

I would say to just go for whatever you want to do. You can literally find any job out there and in this climate, it is the easiest it ever will be. Go in person and apply for positions instead of doing it behind screens.
