Employment w/ Oakley SP
I'm Jordy, hailing from Sydney, Australia. Currently customer service rep for Oakley/Arnette in the South Pacific. Within the office O-Review is a vital resource so I have been stealthing for long enough, figured I was well over-due to open an account and say hey.

Greetings from Cape Town South Africa.
MASSIVE Oakley fan here - own 5 Oil Rigs, 3 Holbrooks, 2 Jupiter Squares, RadarLocks and an Antix.
Recently bought 2 Sliver F's on Black Friday for a bargain on Oakley.com - had them shipped to me in the States to an associate that works with me brought them over recently.
Long and the short - neither of the frames have an SKU on them... :(
Sure they are real, and they are indeed polarized, but feeling a little hard-done by this all.
Never in my life seen (except for fakes) Oakley's that dont have the SKU on the inner left arm.
Oakley.com's support staff have been pretty pathetic to say the least, and sitting here in South Africa, doesn't really help me much either, as an email battle with these $#%^&* is useless.
What is the communities thoughts on this?!
Should I returned them!? - MrPetesCTN
Check for a model code on the inside temple, ask the vendor for confirmation they are an authorised Oakley retailer
and if PayPal was used, seek refund via PayPal due to goods not as described, being that they were not genuine product.

Odd... Mainlink is now called Mainlink XL on oakley.com. Still has the same SKU (OO9264).
No word on an XL release of the Mainlink to my knowledge!? Will report back if I get a confirm on this, v interesting.....
Google Search seems to have crawled the AU site while Mainlink XL was the page title, however title reverted to Mainlink now... I would lean towards a web-dev error on this personally...
Seems to be recurring in different parts of page, I would say its being worked on as we speak

Did your job with Oakley commence pre-Lux days or after? It would be great to hear some inside stories..... - mjt42
I was part of the transition from Pre-Lux team (Based in St Kilda) to the Lux HQ (Based Macquarie Park) so I have only ever been employed through Luxottica. Definetely seemed to be a culture shock for any transferred employees however as of right now in service we don't have any of the original team left. Some carry overs still in the field as sales representatives though!
As or inside stories I have a few bits and pieces I will try to pull together from the inbox and post for everyone to enjoy.

I noticed Marcus Floyd Brand manager has left Oakley.
That was a shame as he had been there for over 25 years I think and had a great relationship with.
Do you know who has replaced him as brand manager?
Losing Marcus is a damn shame and I truly do not think we will recover some of the lost knowledge he takes with him to his next role. To my knowledge we have not yet found a replacement brand manager. I am keen to see how someone fills such big shoes.
@Dann looking for work? XD
