    I worked at Kiddie Kandids part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    learn so much so quickly, and you learn every day.
    You become extremely patient.
    You work with adorable children and babies who make the job so worth it.

    Cons

    extremely fast paced and sometimes the people are hard to work with
    they demand a lot out of you with little compensation
    You are always being pulled in different directions when it's understaffed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    compensate your employees, they're photographers, graphic designers, sales associates, and receptionists.

    I worked at Kiddie Kandids full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great photo experience and great networking

    Cons

    You were not rewarded for your work or efforts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You pay for what you get. If you pay minimum wage for a photographer, your not going to get a good one. Why dance for kids when you can scan groceries for the same price? Also, same goes for the management team. You don't pay well at all. And guess what? Company closed bc it wasnt producing what was expected for how pricy the products were. FYI the main corp is CPI which is also Sears Portrait Studio, Pic Me (WalMart), and Shooting Stars (BuyBuy Baby)

    Pros

    I enjoyed getting studio photography experience, and the interaction with customers.

    Cons

    Frequently didn't get breaks/lunches. Focus is on sales not the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat employees and customers less like numbers and more like people.

    I have been working at Kiddie Kandids

    Pros

    Love to work with kids, freedom to be an artist, the studio can be run how you see fit as long as you make your metrics.

    Cons

    Hiring someone to be a professional photographer, and only offering 8.50 with 15 hours a week, means you have bad associates that you must fire or good associates that quit right away. In the end you WILL average over 50 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure your dm emphasizes on recruiting and training. Or you will start missing your family.
