    I have been working at Noerr Programs part-time

    Pros

    Not many pros to list beyond getting decent hours and not being very strict about the foot wear you choose to wear (able to wear black boots for example)
    One free photo package

    Cons

    Management is absolutely horrendous, schedules are given out late and done last minute

    Employees are treated like dirt and would rather hire a new person and give you no hours than to have you change things

    No benefits what so ever

    Training is non existant

    Expected to meet/surpass extreme goals with minimal help from corporate and no reward

    Advice to Management

    Hire better managers and actually give them a chance to suceed without over working them without proper compensation, and treat your employees like they aren't just an expendable tool.

    I worked at Noerr Programs part-time

    Pros

    There's literally nothing good about this company.

    Cons

    This was the worst job I've ever come across. I quit yesterday. I got hired on the spot when I asked if they were hiring, they didn't even ask for a resumé. I took it to make a few extra bucks over the holidays. They refuse to pay you after you've worked your butt off. I wanted a 20-30 hour/week part time job; they were happy with that when I was hired but I ended up working over 40 hours/week and they refused to pay me for it. You literally have to fight for your paycheck because they'll keep a couple hundred every time. The communication between employees is bad, if you say you cannot come one day, they'll make sure they schedule you for it anyways. People were rude, prices were ridiculously high, and management was a joke.
    Shifts were very long (6-8) and I was never able to sit down or take a lunch break without getting yelled at.
    Basically, you're underpaid for what you do (they'll start most people at minimum wage), working for a bunch of uneducated idiots, and you will not receive your full paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Fix your management because they're awful and rude. They're super uneducated and act like they're amazing and organized. We had a new set manager every week, and regional and division managers were horrible.

    I worked at Noerr Programs part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was pretty good... and I learned a lot because I was forced into crappy situations by terrible management. I can't write anymore because the company had no pros.

    Cons

    Management is the worst. I have never dealt with more horrible people in my life. Pay was never right until I fought for it. Worked for the company for 7 seasons and then was not asked back for no reason. Did things way above my job description with no recognition. Had multiple incidents that I had to deal with on my own time and not get paid for. Do not reccomend.

    Decent pay for regular cashier work
    The coworkers and managers were fun to work with
    The start of the season is relaxing since there aren't a lot of parents coming in

    Cons

    Angry parents yelling about everything and not watching their kids
    Long hours on feet get exhausting
    Throat starts to hurt after repeating the same deals for hours on end

    Advice to Management

    Give longer breaks to employees
    Add chairs for employees to sit

    Pros

    Working with Santa, children and families. Bringing magic to children and creating memories for families

    Cons

    Not enough pay for what you have to do and if you let them they will take advantage of you. Expect you to work for nothing.

    Advice to Management

    if you have a good employee then you should take care of that employee. Stop taking advantage and expect people to work for free.

    I worked at Noerr Programs part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule was pretty flexible and it was an easy job for the most part. The last 2 weeks are the craziest, and it does get pretty stressful. Very simple. Minimum wage for set helpers.

    Cons

    Would NOT recommend to anyone who isn't okay with fast-paced and high stress. Emphasis on stress. Must be able to remain calm in any situation.
