    I have been working at Noerr Programs

    Pros

    Short season, easy job. Easy to learn, can be very fun depending on co-workers. Watching kids with Santa is priceless.

    Cons

    Slow times at mall drag on, pay was minimum wage, crappy co-works were being paid the same as those holding down the fort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay good workers more

    I worked at Noerr Programs part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy Work, fun working with kids, Great Team to work with at the mall. Good opportunity for bonus if goal is meet.

    Cons

    They charge $18 for a shirt when you only work for 7 weeks for the holiday season. Better training for greeters and set managers on training on the camera. Give us a few hours of classroom training, and a manual on using the camera. All the Set and Assistant Managers I worked with were very impatient about teaching the greeters how to use the camera.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Florida Mall really could use more then one Santa. The Santa we had was good with the kids, but got annoyed at the Set Team. During the weekend we were very busy, and it is to much for one Santa. Either a shared Santa, or give Santa a day off one day a week.

    I worked at Noerr Programs as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You can make some extra cash. You work with kids and Santa. Very easy to work, great support system.

    Sometimes the malls where you are at aren't as supportive as the company.

    I have been working at Noerr Programs as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff and had great team members. My Santa Claus was excellent, huge team effort. Had a lot of fun. Considering that the contract was for a short amount of time the money was quite good.

    Cons

    Difficult to get support from upper management at times as he was driving between stores that were miles and miles apart. We emptied our crates of a high selling item and weren't able to receive more shipments from Noerr because there weren't any more. Dealt with a lot of rude customers and had to call mall security a few times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider investing more time into training staff and hiring more Santas, as my Santa kept in good spirits but was clearly fatigued in the later weeks of December. Working almost 70 hours a week will do that to a person.
