Pros

Interesting environment, and learn a lot about the photography development. Pays a decent amount for the work you do. Great job when its busy.

Cons

The amount of unprofessionalism is daunting. The key factor is inconsistency, if policies are enforces it should apply to all workers not just a select few.

Advice to Management

Leave your home life at home and come to work focus on the task at hand. Get more training, strive to be more professional.

    I worked at Sharpshooter Imaging part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you have open availability, you have plenty of hours. You get pizza every now and then. Treats on weekends. Early shifts are great! Commission, bonus. Chance to grow in areas like patience.

    Cons

    Standing for eight hours working full- time hours, but part-time. Suitable for teenagers. Minimum wage. Sometime dealing with unkind guests. Need to make daily profit goals for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be kind, encourage more and let them sit down.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Discounts and perks. If you are the kind of person who can buy 1$ chocolate bars from the vending machine and resell it to classmates in the same room in which the vending machine is standing for $5, this is the job for you- money can be made in this case. This job is for teenagers who are generally well-off, looking to make a few bucks on the side, indeed.

    Cons

    - poor schedule flexibility due to poor human resources management
    - minimal to zero time dedicated to training employees- RTFM, but with no M. Minimal time dedicated to explain safety procedures to employees, leaving them confused
    - Management not following safety procedures, then throwing prosecution threats at employees, for not following safety procedures.
    - selling poor quality, low value products to customers for very expensive, and pushing employees to create maximum results doing so and because of this---->
    - having to deal with guest resistance, and as a result, being exposed to potential conflict
    - leveraging off of everything. From employees health to customers' self-consciousness
    - Not allowed to sit, not allowed to lean- being told to stand up and not lean, condescendingly from management.
    - obvious pecking order, social structure, drama, gossip, stewing emotions, and everything in between.
    - unnecessary authoritarianism on behalf of people who are incompetent in management and technical things.
    - 95% customer service 5 % photography/ technical, even though employees are "photographers"
    - requires employees to be well-versed in the art of seduction, persuasion, and handling fragile social situations
    - no chance to grow and/or use other equipment if management turns on you.
    - being told to smile at your superiors while the superiors are frowning and scowling at you
    - unnecessary and over-exaggerated threats of prosecution
    - general condescending attitude towards customers (who are interpreted as greedy wallets looking for a good time) and employees (ignorant worker bees, who must be disciplined with minimal effort)... one can almost hear the sound of a whip and sorrowful groans.

    Advice to Management

    Do not traumatize your employees. It is important to maintain a good name when presenting a sparkling font to the customers one-by-one, however, employees are also potential customers with families and friends, and they, one-by-one, can affect a company's image. Treating employees poorly is the sink hole in the bottom of the ship.
