    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, easygoing environment, simple hiring process

    Cons

    The whole of management is so causal, it's hard to feel like I'm working for the largest art concessionaire in the country. Mis-scheduling and sudden changes in shift times causes a lot of stress for me. Long, boring hours of standing in the summer heat for low pay isn't very enticing.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more benefits for long-term employees and listen to their scheduling requests.

    I worked at Kaman's Art Shoppes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Made friends and learned some art skills.

    Cons

    Absolutely no incentives, no benefits minimum wage or commission, I worked for company for 15 years and actually went down in salary when management decided to cut everyone's commission in half.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your talented artists better, not like expendable fast food employees.

    Pros

    Fun environment to learn customer service and sales skills as well as shape up by taking on lots of responsibilities.

    Cons

    The company was not the issue, some of the clients could be so mean - it was the only reason I left. Customers didn't seem to realize drawing and painting on some one is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe more training for when there are mean customers and how to handle it.
