Pros: wonderful customers
Cons: not enough employees
I would run myself into the ground trying to keep up with orders. I told the management we needed more people in the frame shoppe. so they gave us longer hours, and then it got ridiculous. Management told us to leave as soon as our shift was over even if we were in the middle of putting together an order. We would have to try and go to sleep at night dreading the next day because we didn't finish on time. I finally stopped trying to sell everyone a custom frames. Sells were still booming but the management was getting flustered. The pay was good and the hours were good. but there had to be a balance. I hated telling a customer an order was not ready; Because I was the one who took the order, I wanted to see how it looked finished as well. I bonded with a lot of my customers and they were always coming back to see me. They would bring in all of there big stuff like flags, posters, old medals, baby clothes, paintings, needle art, and finally some photos.
