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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Noerr Programs as a contractor for 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.

    I have been working at Noerr Programs part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very simple to learn and then do. The camera is always so fun to do, gets you in the holiday spirit, people are always fun working with and sometimes it can be slow so you dont really have to do much. When it does get busy, like nonstop closer to Christmas it is also fun because time goes by faster and you usually get more hours. The manager and set helper here is so fun and flexible its great!
    Great for students

    Cons

    Usually when people dont buy pictures but continue to use their phones it is really hard to handle because they tend to be obnoxious and cause a scene that does not need to be caused. Then their are the members of the set that dont do nothing but watch and then complain about the littlest stuff. The little stuff just comes with the job and isnt that big of a deal. The pros definitly out way the cons I believe

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you hire good managers and assistant manager that actually want to be there. I wish our set had more realistic decorations other then a painted fire place, looks tacky.
