    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations.

    Interview

    It was a pretty standard interview. They asked about traveling because sometimes they send a helper to another location which could be as far away as 6 hours. I had my second interview with a traveling manager and was hired.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations.

    Interview

    The interview process depends on the time of year. Some people have to submit to a over the phone interview, Web came interview, as well as an in person interview. Others walk in and are hired on the spot. This is unfair and not a very reliable hiring process

    I sent in my resume and cover letter to Portrait Innovations in October of last year. My interview was quick and professional, but I got the feeling that the person interviewing me had not looked at my cover letter, because I had to repeat things on it multiple times.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed several months after applying. I honestly couldn't recall when I'd actually submitted my information. The email stated the possibility for an interview and to call for more information. When I called, the in-person interview was set for about a week later. They said it would be at least a week before getting an answer, however, I received an offer the following day.

    Sales Associate/Photographer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Moosic, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Moosic, PA).

    Interview

    Brief, casual, and easy. The hiring manager seemed professional during the interview although the style of the interview was not. There were associates in and out of the printing lab, where the interview took place and it was a huge distraction for both the manager and myself. The job description was accurate, but (as with many job overviews) there were many omissions that would have deterred me from accepting a position with this company.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you feel about working with children?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't necessarily a negotiation phase. They offered the position and I accepted. Received some training and was off on my own.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Toledo, OH) in September 2016.

    Interview

    30 minute interview, one on one with the branch manager. I was asked pretty in-depth questions about how I would deal with customers and children, a lot about up-selling (as thats a huge part of the job).

    Pros: Friendly atmosphere, time and a half for extra hours, benefits, possible advancement if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons: Its seasonal, and you get no vacation time around any holidays. They call it a black out period. I was told to expect long days around the holidays (14-16 hour days). You're expected to work weekends.
