    I worked at YellowKorner part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Starting pay at $10, once you sell a big expensive photo you would get 2% commission.. Which is worth it. Management was very knowledgeable and helpful at times....

    Cons

    The 2% commission is only worth it when you sell an expensive photo that is at least $1,500. Anything under than that, the commission is awful. It is basically only for specific types of customers. Very hard to sell a beautiful picture that is worth over $2,000 to anyone. You have a quota to meet every week. They compare you to other coworkers and push you down. I quit my full time job for this job because I love photography and they were going to promise me 30-40 hours AND be an assistant manager within 3 months. I was looking for advancement within the company right at the interview and they liked my enthusiasm and they said that I was the person that they were looking for because they needed someone to step in as the store manager was going to another store. But the other store was never opened and 6 months went by after I got hired... And I got laid off because the store closed because they weren't making enough money and blamed me for not selling and not making enough money for the store when there was 3 other employees in the store. DO NOT APPLY FOR THIS COMPANY.

    Pros

    Dynamic Product. Luxurious Setting . Since you are responsable for almost everything you have to learn a lot and this makes you more productive. Not boring.

    Cons

    Rather Low Pay . Very difficult to get a good formation at the start and not easy to get problems solved on a higher level.

    Pros

    YellowKorner distributes fine art photography through retail and online. They are leader on their concept and there's a great pleasure in working in a culture-related environment. The company has kept some kind of its initial startup mind, and continues innovating through product development for instance.

    Cons

    It's a retail oriented business so you shouldn't join if you're not ready to be evaluated on performance.

    YellowKorner distributes limited edition art photography, so as an employee you are really stimulated by the product and there is a lot of culture and diversity involved in sales
