It was fun while it lasted
Manager, Photography and Sales (Former Employee), Reno, NVMay 28, 2015
Cons: The company went bankrupt
My job requires taking family portraits in fun fast friendly manor, then uploading them for the families to view and pick out their pictures. There are some days where I get to show the customers their prints and sell them packages that fit their household needs. Being a manager I would oversee a team from 3-5 this job included nightly and weekly paperwork and setting up weekly goals. My co-workers are fun to be around which makes a very pleasant place to work. The hardest part of the job is when a little child comes in upset or is scared of getting their picture to turn their mood around and make them happy for the portraits. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the customers leave with a smile on their face.

CPI is a company that assists it's employees with pay concerns and questions. Payments were always on time and any discrepancies were quickly resolved. They provide contract work around the country, and have been helpful every time I called concerning available job opportunities. This job was working for ROUSH/FORD. Days started at 0600 and ended at 1430 with overtime available during high volume times. Co-workers were helpful and willing to assist other teams. Most enjoyable part of the job was working on Ford Prototype vehicles that are not yet ready for public release.

Love children pictures and baby pictures and the processing works it take to complete a package for a customer Being a processor and a trimming required detail observation and a close watch for satisfaction. The hardest part was that it was seasonal and temp work for me for years before I was full time.

KEY ASSOCIATE (Former Employee), North Wales, PAOctober 3, 2014
Pros: variety of tasks each day
Cons: clients showing up late and still expecting to have their session time
I became a certified photographer moving my way up to second string assistant manager. Hardest part of the job was Christmas time; trying to stay on schedule when you have uncooperative groups of children to photograph. Most enjoyable part of the job was dealing with the public, seeing how pleased my clients were with their pictures.
