    Pros

    Interactions with families and children where creativity and high energy help rpvode the customer with priceless images.

    Cons

    Threatening work-place where every day is threatened to be the last. Unreasonable expectations for availability for part-time and full-time hourly employees. Disorganized management. Poor business decisions that have large consequences for the staff with extreme degree of accountability for poor performance. Extremely poor training practices with a sink or swim mentaility. Poor pay-scale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In an environment that specializes in preserving memories, and attempting to make the experience of the customer an enjoyable one, this company does very little to protect the employees, and make the work environment the least bit enjoyable. Horrible practices by the district managers and VPs have made this a cut-throat and threatening place to work.

    I worked at Picture People part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great pay
    Fun, fast paced environment
    Always getting praised by store manager as well as upper management
    Plenty of hours
    Customer appreciation and feedback feels great

    Cons

    Annoying uniform
    Kids 24/7
    Cleaning up after the kids
    Performing a free service
    Selling to people who aren't prepared to buy
    Hard to meet sales goals
    Hectic during holidays
    VERY unpredictable customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company recently acquired new owners. They are MUCH cheaper than the old owners. Many customers were very angry about the changes in policies and products. Especially because there was not warning or change-over phase. Free things are nice, but they don't bring people back.
