    I have been working at Sir Speedy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a laid back environment. I get along with my coworkers and clientele very well. Working with digital technology has been a good learning experience and mostly fun. It's helped me open up and become comfortable talking with clients and helping them solve any problems that might arise during pre-production, production, and any possible post-production problems.

    Cons

    The biggest con is my hourly wage. I don't get paid what a bigger company would pay. Getting a raise is difficult with a small business. Sometimes, the work is tedious and I'm just struggling to finish it. Another con is the constant problems with the digital presses. It's frustrating when we have to frequently call tech support. The commute stinks. It can be tiring going home.

    I worked at Sir Speedy part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Loved my manager and coworkers. Fun work environment. Great place for learning and on the job training. Taught me a lot about customer service and providing excellence.

    Cons

    Low pay at the time --- minimum wage, but now it should be more comparable as I was in high school at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin on!

    I worked at Sir Speedy part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small mom and pop shop (franchise) supported by a large overhead company in theory.

    Cons

    Small mom and pop shop not up to date on software or hardware.

    Printing is a dying business and companies like these need to adapt to changing times. Advertising to an older client base will only work for so long.

    Advice to Management

    To Corporate: Help your small shops out by providing better incentives to update their machines (better contract deals with the big printer companies), provide marketing experts to help set up displays, purchase worthwhile ads and appeal to the right market base.

    I have been working at Sir Speedy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn production. Flexibility due to absentee owners. Feels like a step back in my career. Not much else to like.

    Cons

    Hired to do design - production was too busy so design farmed out and I was forced into production. Better benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to do more with less.

    Interesting work, excellent location and flexible with hours. Had some good learning experiences in the graphic design area.

    Pros

    Helpful, work hard, meeting new customers and being helpful, great for first time production artists to learn the ropes of working and printing within this environment, they will train the right individual to succeed at their job

    Cons

    Sometimes irate customers if their product does not come in on time. Where I worked the owner butted in on conversations and disregarded what I had said to the customer already and over wrote what I had done for them, priced and helped them in a completely negative way while I was left to pick up the pieces and help them in the best way I knew how, listen to them and give them what they wanted.

    Advice to Management

    Help the employees to become better at what they do and do not talk bad about them to customers and please do not interrupt a conversation to interject something that is not relevant to the customer since you never talked to them from the beginning. Pull the employee aside and ask some questions and ask if they can help you sell the customer what they want.
