Benefits are the only good thing about this job.
Account Representative (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 4, 2019
The hardest thing about the job is dealing with the weather, because you are outside in it all day, every day. People working here for over ten years as a rep have never received a raise. All you will ever get for a job well done is a "way to go!" What you earn varies depending on the dealer you service, and what kind of a deal the sales rep makes with them. You are on straight commission, and one dealer could be paying $10 for twelve photos and another could be paying $14 for nine photos. Then, if the dealer decides to complain about anything, your manager will swoop in and cut their prices or add more photos to the photo count. So you end up losing money. If you take a sick day, the managers want you to make it up on Saturday. If you have a paid holiday during the week, the managers want you to make it up on Saturday. There are no advancement opportunities. The turnover rate is extremely high. Rather than trying to keep the good employees, they treat you like you are easily replaceable.
Great health benefits, 401k, paid vacation and sick leave
Low pay, no raises, and no advancement opportunities
