At the Portrait Studio, a typical day includes scheduling appointments, taking in appointments, photographing families and children of all ages, and selling the photos. All coworkers are very nice and helpful even if they don't work in your department. hardest part of the job is you usually work alone, and sometimes it gets very busy in the studio so time management and great customer service skills are very important. Best part of the job is being able to personalize each session for each customer and capturing special and unique moments for all of them
JCP is going under in the next year or 2 & it shows. Middle management in my store (the ppl *IN* the store full time) isn't terrible but upper management is clearly completely withdrawn & indifferent. None of the equipment works, nothing gets replaced or repaired, training is at best schizophrenic, pay is barely acceptable, no hrs...management will straight tell employees they're down to $15 on accounts so no one can have extra hours. Insanity.
Management doesn't value their workers. I worked there as seasonal and felt completely over worked and drained from working at the department. There was a manger who wasn't fond of anyone of the seasonal staff and asked for me and a co-worker to complete organize the graphic shirts by the design on them. NEVER has that been a requirement it was completely RIDICULOUS
