I worked at Kiddie Kandids full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great photo experience and great networking

Cons

You were not rewarded for your work or efforts

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You 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)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat employees and customers less like numbers and more like people.

    Fun Job, love working with the kids. good equipment and props.
