Stressful work environment when busy
Portrait Studio Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 July 2017
The job consisted of letting clients know of the packages offered, making appointments,confirming appointments, taking the clients pictures, quickly editing and helping them choose the best images depending on what package was chosen, then proceeding with payment, letting clients know when their prints were in for pick up, calling old clients to increase clientele, handing out promotional material to potential clients when the studio was not busy, maintaining a clean work environment, sorting images alphabetically when they came into the studio, opening or closing the studio. Maintain communication with management.
Not enough time with clients was given per session, therefore it made the job very stressful when it was busy.
The training was not sufficient therefore when I was left alone, it made work difficult and stressful.
I learned how to pose adults, children and infants for a studio shoot.
I was often alone in the studio, which was not ideal when many clients came in and needed to be helped.
learning new photo shoot techniques and poses.
not enough time with clients when it was the busy season, not enough employees when busy.
