I worked at Portrait Innovations full-time (less than a year)

Pros

You can work with kids and gain experience as a sales person and photographer.

Cons

Work a ton of hours but you gain no true benefits. Especially during Christmas and Easter season you will never have the time be with family.

    I have been working at Portrait Innovations full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to play with adorable kids and get paid for it, making memories for the families. And PI does have great quality and mostly hard working employees.

    Cons

    All of the upper management talks junk behind everyone's back, I personally heard managers spreading fibs about other managers, as well as their regional managers, and even the VP of Operations, Johnny Grosso! I felt certain that the truth would come out and these "bearers of false witness" would be bested at their own game, not so! Corporate has not a clue about what is going on in their studios and I personally believe they could care less. Certain people that have been there long enough (7-8 years) are the ones causing the trouble and spreading these lies and they can not keep decent employees because of it. If you stand up and say something they let you go or give you what they call a "Job In Jeopardy" which means "you're on your way out!" They lie to their employees just like their customers. Example: If you maintain at least a $102.00 average and your store hits its fiscal budget an associate will get "30%" of their annual salary as a bonus, a manager can earn up to 100% of their annual salary. To their customers, they train their employees to "Walk Around" a direct question so they manipulate the customer into buying more...and the employees do it because if they do not they get FIRED!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a better business plan, appreciate your associates that have genuine skill, talk to your studios....you can release all kinds of products but if you do not converse with people in the field you will remain clueless...look in to Region 1, the Regional Manager, the traveling manager and your 1st stores manager, there you will find issues that need to be "let go," you have not a clue about what they say about you and to other associates, tenured and new!! It's embarrassing. Poor John Grosso works so hard and has a circus!
