I work with Gulf Coast panama Jack through style science. We got a email this week saying Foster Grant had bought out the style science but that we will no be loosing jobs and our pay and services still the same. I worked with Foster Grant about 4 years ago and was not -pleased with them, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Gulf Coast Panama Jack. I am so happy we get to keep our stores and the pay. If anyone hears different please keep us posted..

Yes, We have just started servicing the Safeways this week with the buyout of Stylemark. Some have not been serviced in a year i've been told by the different managers. Now i'm up to about 40 stores. And my manager is wonderful to work for. Alot of it depends on your manager when it comes to liking your job or not.

Is most of the work for FGX in Grocery stores and drug stores? How about Dept. stores?

Currently (at least in this area) it's drug,grocery and large format stores(fred meyers,albertsons safeway etc.) But their always getting new contracts,so things could change for the dept. stores in the near future.

Has anything changed with this company? Just got a notice from them for this general area - I'm working a lot already but remembered this thread. Any info would be helpful!

I have been with Foster Grant for a few years. They pay great. Their projects are always easy to understand and help is always available. You can call retail support if you are in a store and need help. I get a raise every year. I LOVE FGXI. They have glasses in all of the stores.

I applied with them in August, Had an interview with the d.m.
didn't get hired, but she told me at the interview that she had 19 people apply for the postion. She did phone and tell me I wasn't hired, and said she would keep my app.

What does it take to get hired with this company! I've applied 6-7 times and no one called. I've got plenty of experience with sunglasses and reading glasses. They must have many people applying for these jobs.

I got an email from NARMS for a sunglass merchandiser in one of our local theme parks, emailed them (I have 8 years experience doing sunglasses), and got a response very quickly that someone will call me. I hope I can fit it into my schedule.

Hi I just seen a job in my area on NARMS, and I know that ICU eyewear/Zoom eyeworks partners with SRS for their service visits in grocery stores/drug stores. Is FGX International a manufacturer or a merchandising company? I'd love to get on board with this company if it is a merchandising company! Take care....

Angela, ICU eyewear is a competitor company of FGXI. SRS is the merchandising company that represents ICU eyewear. Neither ICU or Foster Grant manufacture their glasses. All the glasses come from China. You can apply to work for both ICU and FG.

MCBarb thank you for the reply! Most of the things we merchandise are manufactured in China nowadays. I'm definitely going to give it a whirl with FGX, take care!

Hello,

Are there any updates on this company? I received a notification from what was NARMS that they had a position available in my area. When I went to their website, it looks like they have many positions available right now. I'm in the midst of the application process... we'll see what happens.
