I worked from 1 to 6 days a week. Opened register, photographed customers, edited photos, sold photos, answered phones, provided reminder phone calls for upcoming appointments, printed photos on site, cleaned the studio, closed the register.
I learned to work with a variety of clientele under high pressure in a fast-paced environment. I learned to provide customer service and learned sales procedures.
I had a direct manager that I worked with regularly. I also had a regional manager that came to the studio every now and again. The hardest part of the job was dealing with inconsistent management, faulty equipment, working in a small space, dealing with customer complaints about our print quality that we could not control.
The most enjoyable part of the job was working with families that wanted slightly unconventional pictures.
Constantly non-working equipment
