Coastal Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The coast, also known as the coastline or seashore, is defined as the area where land meets the sea or ocean, or as a line that forms the boundary between the land and the ocean or a lake. Around 620,000 kilometres (390,000 mi) of coastline are on Earth. Because of the coastline paradox, a coastline's exact perimeter cannot be determined.
Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) says"Work-life balance"
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) says"This is the worst administration I've ever seen. Lack of proper staffing, negative administration."
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) says"Reading other reviews, I would say it is a fair representation of the company. If you value work place culture, it is HIGHLY toxic. Another review stated your work relationships are based off ones dislike of the company. That is very accurate. It was stressful to come to work to discuss the same issues and nothing changed. You get used to keeping your head down and putting up with it OR just get a new job. You can get paid the same if not more and have better work environment. Statistics say people quit the boss not the job. Again this is true. Having worked at 5 different stores not much changes and asking other associates at different stores about their environment across the board it all seems the same. My 6 month temp job turned into over 4 years. While I gained lots of work experience I feel much of my time was wasted as a self started this is not an ideal work place. The corporate environment prefers those who think within the box if you throw ideas for improvement or even mention a long term issue and ideas on how to fix it you get targeted immediately. Those who come in from outside the company have nothing good to say about the owner and how he allows things to be run (based on one on one interviews with them). They often end up leaving. This should speak for itself on workplace culture. You almost have to be born into it to be able to handle it. It's more of less the fact you get used to it not because it is right or wrong but just because that is how it is and how it will always be. Also, this company doesn't follow it's own policies what one person can be let go Cons: management, workplace culture, gossip"

Christina Saunders says"Coastal is the epitome of corporate America; here to make money and show no accountability for their faulty business practices. They showed no desire to help me with a missing package, made false promises of replacing the package, and offered no help after the order was placed; after the money was received form my bank account they were of no help. I called four times with no resolution. I am out of over $100.00 and have no product."
Jen says"Took forever"
Jae says"This order too way to long to receive and I was not made aware it was coming from another country until after I paid for it."
Fred Frank says"I have gotten quite a few pairs of glasses from Coastal but they are all pretty fragile. Even my new ones broke in a few days."
April Standerfer-Holtz says"There’s been no update with the physical location of my order since December 4th. I’ve contacted Coastal via chat support twice for assistance and told I just need to wait longer. Here we are the 24th of December and there’s still no update to let me know where the package is.
Every time I’ve asked at point is the package declared lost, I’m told normally they would ship me new contacts if there was no change after 48 hours, but that I need to just wait right now. I would never use Coastal again in the future. The customer service leaves a lot to be desired."
Claude W says"I don’t like the glasses. They’re flimsy and cheaply made and well,although they didn’t cost much, it literally feels like they will fall apart easily. There’s an area that seems like a hot glue gun was used to put these glasses together. You get what you paid for so yes, $60 gets you a frame that you’ll probably never wear. Pay more and get better quality. I will say, I have gotten a $60 something pair of glasses at America’s Best and those were sturdy enough and those recently broke after years of having them. Thank you!"
JR says"Glasses arrived unusable. Despite three separate assurances (in print, in chat session) that the bifocal would be a 'flat top', the lenses instead were progressives. The base curves were not proper. I realized the glasses were unusable in 30 seconds. Fortunately they refunded my payment promptly and made good arrangement (prepaid USPS label) to return them."
Sally Rowell says"I have ordered from coastal before. Wonderful
Results. This time glasses fit was loose"
William Carson says"I'm glad I found this site. I will always order my contacts from here from now on.."
Michelle Tucci says"I picked out my glasses using the virtual try it on option. The glasses that arrived are much larger then what was shown on my face. While the ordering process was easy...I am not happy with the look of the frames. Going to see how easy it is to return."
LH says"Takes forever to get the frames."
Tara Romney says"I don't like either of my glasses. I wish you could try on frames before committing."
pixiebon says"Took too long to get here. Price is higher than other sites.
Tammy Greenwell says"Glasses were hug and ill fitting. Long shipping time. Good customer service"
Ida Cormier says"I asked for transitional and I’m not wearing my glasses because they really don’t fit right I ask for transitional in these glasses I don’t even win because they don’t feel great"
Former Customer says"Got an email saying that my order was ready, including a tracking number.... 4 days ago. Still not shipped out. A call to their Call Center in the Philippines, including a chat with a manager revealed nothing. A promised call back never happened. Are they ready for shipment or not? Are they even completed or not? Either way, I'm ok, just don't TELL me they're ready, and then NOT let them be shipped. I get that it's December, and the USPS is super busy, but these don't show as even being GIVEN to USPS. Seems weird. This isn't the first order that's taken a long time (3+ weeks) to receive. but it's likely to be my last. Bummer to be soured on a product before I get it, because their ops is so bad."
Maria Alvarez says"I’m unhappy with service. My original order was lost and had I not called I would not have received my order."
Ron says"I might need to look at getting these adjusted. The focal point seems to be narrower than the ones I have with the same prescription. Average."
linda gagnon says"My first order and the only complaint is that the frames are much lighter than I supposed when ordering. I would not order these again. Lenses okay but not perfect."
Ramses says"The lens feel as thought they are going to pop out. And the legs of the glasses need to be bent more so they won't fall off my face any more."
