Advice to ManagementAdvice

I love my job and what I do! I would love to see a website where studios can share ideas and info. I would also love to see our uniforms change to something more 2013. We are the best photography studios out there, but have awful all black uniforms, which have been known to change children's mood and how they take you. Carolina blue / brown pools and a standard dark jean would be great, since that is the main colors for us. Overall, I am very happy with TPP.

    I have been working at Picture People part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the people, the coworkers and customers, I work with are nice and easy to deal with. The kids are extremely cute, although some are quite bratty. Sales are simple if you know the ins and outs of the packages, including custom packages, not just the ones the company already put out there.

    Cons

    The holidays are terrible and we have to take as many sittings as possible. After the holidays isn't all that great either because if there aren't appointments, your work hours are severely cut. The higher ups only care if your average is high. People think it's a professional photo studio, it's not. They hardly train you for what you need to do and the pay is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being obsessed with just making money and treat your employees better. Also if you have the money, update your equipment and programs already. Darkroom crashes all the time and for a "professional" studio, you should have the capacity to shoot in raw, not low quality jpeg.
