    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Picture Me Portrait Studios.

    Interview Details

    You will be asked to do a phone interview which will be very casual. If you're a mother thats a plus but your schedule will vary so if your children are young have someone on call to babysit. The 2nd interview will be in person mines was very lax.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Picture Me Portrait Studios.

    Interview Details

    Very easy, if you have ANY photography or sales experience. The company is desperate and because of poor management, will hire just about anyone. I was hired based entirely on my resume. There was no "interview" to speak of.

    MIT Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palestine, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Palestine, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Picture Me Portrait Studios in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application for the Manager in training position for this company after seeing it listed on snagajob.com. The day after I applied I got a call to come in for an interview for the MIT. When I get there the interviewer tells me that she was sorry that it was not for the MIT position and was just for a regular associate. I said okay you didnt have to lie though. She said she had to tell me that cause she knew it would get me in there because she had to get someone hired by the end of the week or she'd get in trouble. I told her that we just need to stop because I was not interested in $8/hr for less than 15 hrs/wk. She keeps going and tells me about their policies-and after everything she said it was "do it or your going to get in trouble." I stopped her again and told her that I was not interested and seemed to be too much 'trouble' for me, she still had the nerve to tell me she'd let me know at the end of the week if I got the job or not-I told her not to bother because I was not interested. She said talk to you later! What a rip off- do not lie to a potential employee to get an interview. Please this company is a joke-and if you don't follow their rules-you'll 'get in trouble'

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ames, IA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ames, IA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Picture Me Portrait Studios in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    This interview process was nothing like I expected. It was quick and informal and she didn't ask the normal questions a great employer would. She gave me a worksheet and said cuss words a lot. We did the interview in the McDonald's in the Walmart.

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't a "difficult" or "unexpected" question. She was just brief and informal and asked about experience and said that everything can be taught so you could have no experience and be hired. Great first job but be sure to keep looking for others.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The website for the job said the pay would be 10 dollars and up but she offered me 8 dollars and hour but I said I was looking for a bit more. She said "ok you will get paid more if you work here" and she put $8.25. Not a lot but it was an ok start.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eugene, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Eugene, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Picture Me Portrait Studios in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was walking through Wal-Mart and noticed PictureMe Portrait Studio was hiring. The woman on-duty told me they were hiring for a part-time 18-20 hours per week position.

    Then the company requires you apply online. You fill out an application, upload your resume, and take a math test. The regional manager called me two days later and scheduled an interview with me.

    The interview was conducted by two people: the regional manager and the studio manager. The interviewers were very friendly, engaging, hard-working women. I could also tell they were very interested in the bottom line. They had me "sell them" my cell phone on the spot. They had me get up and pretend to photograph a teddy bear (in place of a real baby). They explained to me the job is mostly sales: Walking around Walmart selling photo shoots to customers, calling people at home to book shoots, then selling big packages of photos to customers.

    In the fall, they are only hiring seasonal employees. Then they will keep only a few of those employees after the holidays, when photo season is over.

    I was offered the job, but decided not to take it. That's because the job only pays about $9 an hour about 20 hours a week, with no benefits. I figured I could find a better opportunity elsewhere in sales or photography.

    Interview Questions
    • Take out your cell phone right now, and "sell it" to us.   Answer Question
    • Would you be willing to sell by approaching people shopping at Wal-Mart and by calling them at home?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    The pay was too low. No benefits. Only part-time work (about 20 hours weekly) is available to employees who aren't managers. The job is mostly a sales job, and I'd like to make more money if I'm going to be working in sales.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Broken Arrow, OK
    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Picture Me Portrait Studios in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Studio manager asked basic questions like can you read, do you know how to talk to people. No questions were asked about photography and when I asked about it the answer was, don't worry, well train you.

    I was then sent to the district manager and asked questions about my personality. I was asked if I had ever been in management before and if I'd like to be a manager. I was assured it was the only way to get hours and would be trained if they felt I was worthy of the position after a few months. I was offered the position the day after my training to be an associate was finished.
