Southwest Region GradImages Review

Event Photographer (Current Employee)
Tucson, AZ

I have been working at GradImages part-time for more than 3 years

ProsExtra seasonal money, gaining experience in photography

ConsNo communication between managers, team captains and photographers.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement made employment status inactive without even communicating the reason. I had a family emergency and couldn't make it to ONE event, let team captain know, who didn't communicate that with the regional manager, and he didn't bother to call me before "deactivating" my employment. Ridiculous- completely unprofessional. Try giving your employees (especially ones who have worked there for more than three years) the benefit of the doubt and maybe a phone call.

They take advantage of their employees and pay no more than minimum wage.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Tallahassee, FL

I worked at GradImages full-time for more than a year

ProsIt's a casual work environment for the most part. Lots of people worked there who had no skills whatsoever and really didn't deserve the job.

ConsThey don't pay well at all, and so you work with a lot of idiots who that's all they can get. They take advantage of their employees and expect unrealistic goals while charging their customers through the nose, and passing none of it on to the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementGrow a backbone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Very Unpleasant.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Tallahassee, FL

I have been working at GradImages

ProsThe best and only reason is the people you work with. Everyone is friendly and easy to get along with.

ConsThe pay is completely terrible. They set goals for you and expect you to be a top notch representative, yet they pay minimum wage. They also over charge the customers and virtually lie to them.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe managers haven't been on my case, but I think they should know to watch what they say or at the least where they say it. They tend to blatantly talk about people when they are not around, and a lot of the time someone who knows the person is in the same room. It's really not good for inner office politics

One of the worst and unprofessional work experiences ...ever

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at GradImages as a contractor

ProsThe people you work with are generally great

ConsEverything else. Poor pay and raises. They claim to train photographers but don't and if you do know what you are doing, you will be asked to do two jobs for the price of one. They use the word "team" but be aware it is to manipulate you into...working for free. If you do offer any feedback be prepared to pay for it. And, be aware that the customers seem to be very (and understandably) unhappy. They charge a good amount for crap work and product. It's hard to be proud of that.

Advice to Senior ManagementSeriously. Where could we start?

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
