Studio Manager Flash Digital Portraits (Current Employee), Wausau, WI – January 22, 2015
A typical day at work is never boring. There are always new customers and children that we meet, interact with, and photograph. Each person/family has a story to be told or a precious moment they are sharing with us so we can capture it for them to cherish for generations to come. I learned sales. I learned what it means to exceed expectations. My coworkers were always supportive, We always had a team atmosphere. The hardest part of the job is keeping your smile and energy up when you are absolutely tired at the end of a saturday during Christmas peak.
The relationships that you will build are priceless.

photographer (Former Employee), syracuse new york – January 17, 2015
Pros: not really any being seasonal except they do well in paying for gas in your car.
Cons: no breaks not too much compassion from management
The team of photographers I worked with were the best part of the job .I worked as seasonal school photographer. I believe management did their best but just didn't have the ability to take on all that was expected of them which resulted in rudeness , unfair treatment to fellow associates etc. Example photographing down stairs in a high school music aud with no cool air on a hot summer day with 90 degree temp and sales manager not allowing photographer who has been on her feet for several hours to take a break just to get a drink of water.
I enjoyed being in a different sotre everyday and liked the people who worked under me

PHOTOGRAPHER (Former Employee), Downers Grove, IL – November 7, 2014
Pros: fast moving, fun
Cons: pay, sometimes overbooked
The mornings and evenings were typically busier than afternoons. I usually spent most of my day in a camera room or showing and selling photos. Happy, fast paced working environment. You do get sick a lot being around young children, but after the first year your immune system gets used to it. Some children are easier to make smile and pose than others. Overall very rewarding.
Photographer/ Sales Associate (Former Employee), Pasadena, CA – October 29, 2014
Didn't give you the ability to plan anything involving personal life. Not many hours, and a flawed system for rewarding good work with hours, that was never actually enforced and was abused by the studio's management. The only reward was being able to make kids smile and proving great memories for families to cherish.
