    A great job, but unfortunately only seasonal.

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company provides seasonal photos with Santa, but you never got the feeling that you were disposable. There were great opportunities for advancement, despite the short term of holiday employment, and hard work and reliability were rewarded.

    ConsIt is retail, during the holidays, at a Santa photo shoot, so it will be busy. Customers can be a bit stressed, but that pretty much goes goes with the territory as far as retail work is concerned.
