Fun place to work, can be very stressful
Photographer and sales associate (Former Employee) – London, ON – 29 June 2018
When I first started working for Portraita unlimited it was called CPI Canadian portraits incorporated, when run by them it was very customer oriented, make the customer happy. When the company switched over it started going down hill and was all about money, sales, get people to buy things they don't want. It was a very busy job, you had to know how to multitask as you ran everything by yourself, when I worked out at hydepark they had the funfactory still so I alone ran the portraits; photographing clients, editing photos and upselling the customers. Plus doing the passport photos, upselling luggage tags and passport wallets and well as filling teddy bears and upselling outfits. I also moved around to all four of the locations that they had in London and even covered shifts in st Thomas and strathroy, I managed for a few months at the argyle, hydepark and Westmount location while the managers were off for medical reasons all at seperate times but when I was sent back to my original location they changed my hours from full-time to 6hrs a week so I had no choice but to leave. Since then they've gone down two locations as they couldn't afford to stay open as the company is tanking.
