    Sales Associate/Photographer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Moosic, PA

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Jackson, MS) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy. I was told what to expect from the job. However after working here, everything I was told in the interview was a lie. Just like the deceptive sales tactics we are taught, they were used in the interview. I have never had a job as bad as this one.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Cranberry, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It was more like casual conversation. They hire you based on whether or not they like you. They asked about experience but don't ask to see any work prior to employing you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations.

    Interview

    They preferred some one with sales experience over photography experience. Don't bring your portfolio of nature photos and random stuff. They are not interested. You'll sit down with the manager and you'll want to make sure if you have tattoos cover them up. Just talk about how cool kids are and how you would like to sell things and you'll have a good chance.

    Interview Questions

    • You have to work with kids. Can you show me how you would make a kid smile.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Lexington-Fayette, KY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It was the typical interview process. The manager was very laid back and polite. He felt more of a co-worker than a manager already. The questions were the same type of questions normally asked at other workplaces. He eventually asked my about something on my resume about a Photography award I got in high school. Afterwards, he gave me some papers that I fill out and send in on my own time. A week after that, I was hired.

    Interview

    Typical interview by store manager. I felt they had a sample questioneer they had to follow for the interview process. It was out in the open; I found it strange there was no private office to go into. Manager does not have any power to negotiate salary.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Jacksonville, FL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    They sit you down and ask a few questions. They're pretty much looking to see how energetic and animated you are. How well you interact with people. If a session is going on during your interview and a child just so happens to be wondering around or come near you, don't be afraid to interact. That at least help the interviewer see in person how you interact with children.
