    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Sears part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - You learn many job skills such as sales, customer service, and prioritizing conflicting tasks. - A good way to improve portrait posing. - Some customers are amazing to have conversations with during the photography and selling process. - Shifts are rarely boring and often fly by fast.

    Cons

    - For the work, minimum wage is unacceptable. Minimum wage is for jobs that do not require a skill and are single task focused. Photography does require a creative eye and skill. - Company cuts corners in customer service to save costs, which probably results in lower revenues. The studio is often overbooked and understaffed - resulting in inpatient customers. This also makes customers, especially on the weekend, feel like they are going through a bureaucratic DMV like process, rather than receiving a personal experience. This also increases the stress of the associate on duty coping with all the impatient customers. - Corporate often messes up the delivery of portraits from the lab to the studio, resulting in understandably frustrated customers. However, they often blame the associate working behind the counter. - Some parents behave worse than their children as customers. Sometimes they will blame the photographer if they can't control their own children for photos. A photographer can only do so much to get the children to cooperate. - Many co-workers and managers do not put attending their scheduled shifts a top priority. I was requested to cover someone else's shift often the last minute at least once or twice a week. - Equipment is old and often faulty. There are frequent computer crashes / malfunctions. Photography equipment is also frequently down.. Corporate is very slow in addressing these issues, even during the holiday season. - Passport printing paper is often out of stock, resulting in lost sales and frustrated customers. - Coupons that allow customers to walk out with a free portrait without paying a penny is often abused. - Many times, due to the customer load especially in the holidays, Associates cannot take any breaks or lunch.

    Advice to Management

    Please experience a day as an associate during an overbooked and understaffed weekend day during the Holiday season or when a free coupon is about to expire. You will realize how corners have been cut in providing customers with the best experience. Also, fix the online booking system to allow appointments to be scheduled based on the number of associates. Also, don't give so many free items without a catch away.
