Why do you love working at Luxottica?
I joined Sunglass Hut in June of 2009 as a summer job. I loved the company so much that my “summer job” turned into a career. I’ve found that the opportunities at Luxottica are literally endless, because it’s a global company that’s vertically integrated. If you truly own your own development and search for opportunities then you’re sure to find success and have a rewarding career. Plus, the product and people are great!
What are your main responsibilities as a total rewards administrator?
I focus on communicating and providing new benefits and perks to Luxottica associates. I also do some project management when implementing new benefits—especially if the benefit has a high level of complexity to it.
What do you enjoy the most about your job?
The most enjoyable part of my job is the variety. Since taking on my current role, I’ve had my hands in many different projects, from dress code and new hire orientation to flexible scheduling and anniversary gifts.
What’s been your most rewarding day at Luxottica?
The most rewarding day in my career was when I followed up with an associate that took advantage of Luxottica’s Tobacco Cessation Program. Thanks to the assistance of this program, she was able to quit smoking on her son’s 5th birthday.
Why are you a good fit for Luxottica?
I truly enjoy Luxottica’s fast-paced and dynamic culture and environment.
Why do you love your job?
I love my job because I get to participate in New Hire Orientation about one time each month. It’s a great to welcome new associates to the company and help them get connected!
