Very great workplace
Cashier- selling photographs (Former Employee), The Woodlands, TXJune 8, 2015
I would get there an hour before me opened. Make sure that all the computers were plugged in. I would take sample shoots of pictures just to make sure the camera was working. The bunny or santa would get there and hour or 30 minutes before we opened to make sure the suits were good and needed nothing. Then customers started to show up 15 minutes before open. We would get them all checked in and just wait until santa or the bunny was ready and sometimes they would come out early. The employees would show up 30 minutes before open.

FUN PLACE TO WORK
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Cedar Falls, IAApril 4, 2015
Pros: fun environment, easy job, oppurtunities for advancement
Cons: pay is okay
The managers are extremely nice and understanding. They listened to what the employee has to say. They are also very fun to talk to!

I worked for them for 3 weeks for the bunny booth, and I have to tell you, it was the BEST 3 weeks of my working life! I have another job that I have been with for over a year, and I have never had as much fun than when I worked at the bunny booth!

Not as easy as it looks. Beware!
Easter Bunny (Former Employee), Orange, CAApril 3, 2015
Pros: Making families happy
Cons: Extreme monotony, little to no traffic in mall, management, obvious comradeship between staff, payment system
My 2 wk Easter Bunny gig was paradise on Earth for a few days, then I realized how agonizingly monotonous it was. The suit became unbearably hot, and I do not recommend this kind of job for anyone that becomes uncomfortable doing monotonous and/or hardly any activity for long periods of time. If you want to run around in a costume, please get into a Disneyland show, or else you will fall out of love with the job quickly. Manager had obvious favorites and cared nothing for the newbie she hired onto her team (me). Made it very clear said newbie was an outsider that never did anything right. Unprofessional attitude and was always too busy to pay any attention to the new hire. Her very young assistant manager needs to switch places with her, as he would make a far superior manager. Manager would fit perfectly in a retail setting.

Flawed payment system. Difficult ensuring the safety and accuracy of your deposit.

Would NEVER do anything like this again. Reminder: if you become uncomfortable doing monotonous and/or little activity over a period of time, do NOT accept a job as a Bunny!

Fantastic Job
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZMarch 5, 2015
Pros: everything!, free drinks during shift at johnny rockets
Cons: seasonal, pay
Really wish the job wasn't seasonal and had better pay but I couldn't expect the pay to be much higher since it is (seasonal). Very rewarding experiences seeing the kids sit in Santa's lap.

Location Manager (Current Employee), Fresno, CAJanuary 3, 2015
Cons: the easter bunny suit was torture. that's about it.
I worked the photography set during this period, however most of the time I was the "Easter Bunny". I had a wonderful time being my animated self and providing more smiles and memories for families. I love making people smile, and also love being behind the camera.

Not very well put together
Santa's Helper/Greeter (Former Employee), Frederick, MDSeptember 17, 2014
Pros: getting to make people smile for pictures (sometimes)
Cons: attempting to make people/babies/children smile for pictures, short breaks, long hours, small pay for the work load
Set manager was not experienced and had a difficult time working and controlling her staff, ended up demoting her first assistant manager (for god reason), but she ended up quitting (the assistant manager), and promoted a coworker to new assistant manager, and she was more put together and seemed more experienced than the actual manager. Overall, a fun place to work, when at a steady pace. Otherwise, very hectic and unorganized with ill-mannered equipment provided by the company.

Friendly environment with creative freedom.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Wayne, NJMarch 4, 2014
Pros: free pictures, friendly environment, discounts at the food court!
Cons: none.
. I worked for this company for four (4) season( 3 Easter 1 Christmas) A typical day at work here consisted of starting your early boring morning with energetic co-workers who are easy to get along with. It seems that no matter the personality or the person everyone seemed to have an upbeat attitude. I love working with children and this jobs was the perfect job, I just wish it was more then seasonal. Management sometimes had problems as far as communication but they always made it up to the employers. I've always had friendly encounters with my co-workers, we would even all go on break together and eat as a family in the food court. They were all nice and energetic. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with rude customers, but even then there were always another co-worker willing to relieve you of your rude customer and take over. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to be having the ability to make children enjoy their surrounding environment.

fun seasonal christmas job
Santa's Helper (Former Employee), Owings Mills, MDJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: long breaks, a lot of help and team work
It's a fun environment. Co-workers and management were very nice and we had a lot of fun on and off of the clock. We assisted santa claus with greeting his guests and taking pictures. Everything was enjoyable. The only hard thing was helping all of the guests, because at times, the line would be out of the door.

Typical Retail Sales Job
Cast Member (Former Employee), Modesto, CAJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: fun environment, meeting new people, easy, good for extra money
Cons: pay system is flawed
I have worked with this company for 3 seasons now and hope to work the next season. It's not a terrible job & it's fairly easy. It's like most retail jobs where the hardest part is sometimes dealing with the customers. A typical day would be greeting customers, taking photos, helping them select their photo, print, then check out. I feel bad that this past Christmas season have left a lot of bad tastes in people's mouth. There was a lot of mess ups when it came to being paid. Their system is obviously flawed & I hope things are better the upcoming season.

Worst company I've ever worked for
Cast (Former Employee), Beavercreek, OhioDecember 13, 2013
Pros: smoke breaks, seeing/making kids smile
Cons: short lunch breaks, never sure of when youll get paid, poor management, temporary
I was hired and my managers at the time were pretty good, but the supervision from upper management over them could have been a lot better. They were able to leave the set any time for as long as they want to talk on the phone, and the majority of the time it was to talk to upper management! This companys payroll is rediculous. We did not get paid untill a week after we were told our pay cards would come in and we ended up getting paychecks anyway. Not everyone got paid that day, the santa in the evening and another employee got paid about a week after everyone else. Our second paycheck had actually came early but still no sign of the pay cards. Our managers could not staff the set according to what we needed because the upper management pushed hard for minimum labor costs and would not let any more than 3 people scheduled at a time monday through thursday and thats including the manager. One manager got fired because one of the santas threated to quit if they didnt fire her, the manager had various problems with this santa breaking role and many customers would compain about the pictures because he would not smile. The manager talked to him many times about this and he would get angry and basically not listen. He would also offten times pull me aside to tell me how to do my job which interfered with what my managers would try to teach me. He had actually suggested when people are rude to give them a minimal about of kindness. I would recommend to stay away from this company if possible, they are shady, the upper management lie to set managers and employees to avoid conflict so they dont have to deal with the problems and even though the job its self is rewarding seeing kids smile and making them happy, but the cost is much higher than the reward in this case.
