Anonymous Interview Candidate in Monroeville, PA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Portrait Innovations.

Interview Details

I was offered an interview two weeks after applying online. The interview was supposed to start at 10 AM, but the manager didn't take me back until 11:20 and barely apologized for the wait. The interview itself lasted about 20 minutes. The manager asked me about my background, told me a little about the company, asked me why I wanted to work there, if I liked working with children, and if I was willing to work long hours, especially during the holiday season.

    interviewed at Portrait Innovations in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the recruiting director by phone to set up an in person interview. I interviewed with the studio manager in person. It was pretty typical questions. Nothing to fancy. What are your strengths? Weakness? Are you comfortable working with young children?

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Portrait Innovations in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The corporate recruiter called me from North Carolina and conducted a phone interview to make sure I was an appropriated candidate for a 1:1 interview. My 1:1 interview was with the Regional manager and took place while a few families were getting pictures taken and selecting photos for purchase. The staff seemed warm and friendly. The Regional Manager was very nice and wanted to get a feel for my sales background as well as my ability work with children and their families. It seemed like a fun and rewarding place to work if you are a people person and enjoy working with children.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Portrait Innovations in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Pre-screening interviews are generally conducted over the phone by a member of the HR department. The phone interview consists of questions relating to your availability, photography, and sales experience. If you pass the initial phone interview, you are then scheduled for an interview with the studio manager. The in-person interview may take 30 minutes or so. The studio manager generally asks questions similar to the phone interview and tries to determine if you are a good fit. Impress the studio manager and the job is yours. The manager then sends a review to the HR department, who notifies you of the hiring decision.
