    I worked at Wolf Camera full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get to play with all the new cameras

    Cons

    Pay was OK on a yearly basis, but not consistent.

    Advice to Management

    This is a camera store. There should be desirable cameras on the shelves, and not outdated video games.

    Pros

    Wolf Camera gives good employee discounts. Also they give nice incentives for meeting sales goals on cameras or products. Monthly sales competitions with great prizes.

    Cons

    Sometimes business is very slow with a lot of down time. Depending on location you could have a hard time selling specific cameras.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. I enjoyed working for the company and would recommend it to any college student trying to make some money while in school.

    I worked at Wolf Camera part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The job was easy but looked good on a resume. I started working at Wolf right when film development was on the way out so it was a lot of digital printing processes. I worked part time but also made commission.

    Cons

    Management was usually horrible. Especially upper management.

    I worked at Wolf Camera full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The customers, some people working for the company, it's selling and selling can be fun. A few but not really good employee discounts, not too bad health insurance.

    Cons

    The decisions upper management made contributes to the failure of the company. There are also some indication (search online) that upper exec's paid themselves very nicely. As a store manager 55 to 65h per week was normal. 45 was the minimum mandated, 40 were paid and for each paid holiday payroll deducted 8h regular pay and added 8h holiday pay. So bottom line no paid holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to school
