    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.

    Former Employee - Santa Set Helper in Stanford, CA

    Pros

    Wonderful working with kids and seeing their love for Santa, as well as the hilarity that comes from Santa fears. Fun job when you get to let go and have fun on the set. The Santas are always going to be nice if you're nice.

    Cons

    On average a younger staff on set, which means more drama and less maturity. The management is less driven by good will and Christmas spirit, and more by the greed of the season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at your Regional Managers and work to make sure that they actually have the people skills to work well with your lower employees. Evaluate your sales goals and make them reasonable to achieve.

    Pros

    Seeing the children's faces when they see Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny is sure to bring a smile to your face when you're working with Noerr Programs. Knowing that you get to be a part of a child's happiness for just that short time is a reward in itself.

    Cons

    The only cons I can think of would be the long hours of standing, tolerating the crying children, and the long lines of people during the holidays. For the most part, it is only a part-time job so expecting to make a lot of money is unnecessary.
