Why Our Associates Love NVI

In honor of Valentine’s Day we asked some of our associates why they love working at National Vision. We heard phrases like, “everyone works together,” “giving back,” and “looking forward to each day” – just some of the things we are all about at NVI.

We’d like you to meet six of our valuable associates and hear what they have to say!

Marlon is part of the team that is responsible for packing up all products, supplies, and accessories needed at our stores and shipping them out. When asked why he loves working for National Vision he said:

“I love working at NVI because of the people I work with.  Everyone works together to get the job done. I also enjoy the benefits the company provides and I like the time off from work that I get to spend with my family. The management always works with me when I have a problem.”
