Studio Sales Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC (US)
No Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Cary, NC (US)) in November 2017.

Interview

I applied for the job on indeed. Received a phone call about a week later asking if I’d like to come in for an interview. Once I got there I filled out the application which basically just asked basic information, education, and work experience. After filling out the application I waited for about 20 minutes while the manager helped a family pick out portraits. It allowed me time to relax and get a feel for the atmosphere. When the manager was done she came over and we began the interview right there out in the open, there was no office or interview room. The interview lasted about 15 minutes and overall gave me the feeling I got the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was emailed several months after applying. I honestly couldn't recall when I'd actually submitted my information. The email stated the possibility for an interview and to call for more information. When I called, the in-person interview was set for about a week later. They said it would be at least a week before getting an answer, however, I received an offer the following day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Toledo, OH (US)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    30 minute interview, one on one with the branch manager. I was asked pretty in-depth questions about how I would deal with customers and children, a lot about up-selling (as thats a huge part of the job).

    Pros: Friendly atmosphere, time and a half for extra hours, benefits, possible advancement if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons: Its seasonal, and you get no vacation time around any holidays. They call it a black out period. I was told to expect long days around the holidays (14-16 hour days). You're expected to work weekends.

    Studio Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations in August 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the job and heard back about a month later. The interview was easy; got there a little early and my interviewer was late (she was still on her lunch break). Went through all of the motions, had the job outlined and was given a brief tour of the studios. I had the misfortune of doing my interview in while they had customers in the studio. The photos were amatureish and the staff seemed more concerned with making the sale. I later found out that the studio pushes REALLY hard for high sales averages from associates with steep consequences when they don't meet them.

    Interview Questions

    • The one question they seemed keen on getting from me was how I handled children.   Answer Question
