    Tons of skills to develop and learn, you become more personable and more patient.

    Photographer and Sales Associate (Former Employee) Foothill Ranch, CA

    Proslearn 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.

    Consextremely 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 Senior Managementcompensate your employees, they're photographers, graphic designers, sales associates, and receptionists.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Kiddie Kandid Portrait Studio inside Babie R Us

    Studio Manager (Former Employee) Naperville, IL

    ProsGreat photo experience and great networking

    ConsYou were not rewarded for your work or efforts

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou 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)

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Experience, Bad store and company ethics

    Photographer (Former Employee) Broomfield, CO

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

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

    Advice to Senior Managementtreat employees and customers less like numbers and more like people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fun job, cannot get reliable staff

    Studio Manager (Current Employee) Madison, WI

    ProsLove 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.

    ConsHiring 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 Senior ManagementMake sure your dm emphasizes on recruiting and training. Or you will start missing your family.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
