Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you plan on working someone into the ground, at least compensate them at a decent rate for all the crap the employees have to deal with.
Give your employees benefits, so they can actually go to the doctor when you have gotten them so sick, they have no other choice but to see a doctor. Its not fun when you have no insurance, but have to go to the doctor, and present a doctors note, no matter what the issue.

    I have been working at Portrait Innovations full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Decent just out of college wage

    Cons

    Constant harassment to sell more, go faster or be fired. Mandatory overtime. 12-15 hour days with no lunch -- manager tells you to log out but keep working. Manager talks behind everyone's back. Cheap promotions bring in cheap customers and then employees are expected to sell them more and be fast about it. I was told not to show all options available in order to speed up process. Manual says 2 employees per shoot, but you are on you're own. Try to take shots/pose children at the same time and be fast is next to impossible especially during "THE BLACKOUT" season. Manager swears at you and belittles you in front of other staff. Constant pressure to sell or be fired at end of season, which would be a relief.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop putting out cheap promos, that bring in cheap customers. Find out if your employees are being harassed. Happy employees will make or break you.
