A lot of this does not apply to me because I was freelance and did not even work in the actual studio, but instead I was a salesperson at their promotion stand Cribbs. All the staff I worked with were extremely friendly and very helpful. Pay is also very generous if you can get sales and leads

Clifton Photographic is a great company for a family like environment with work that will keep you busy but that is enjoyable and offers the potential to be very financially rewarding. There are various departments from sales and marketing to the creatives such as Make Up Artists and of course the Photographers, and the company will always help to play you to your strengths. As a freelancer, work is flexible around other work and family commitments however does mean that work isn’t guaranteed (which is the nature of freelance work in general). However, any new openings in the company will always consider existing team members first. Highly recommend.
Pros
Uncapped Bonus/Commission, Flexible, Rewarding, Great Social Aspect (lots of team building events), Enjoyable.
Cons
Work is dependant on what’s available so not guaranteed for freelancers.

Worked in the promotions and sale team for about 16mths and finally left early this year to get full time work. Although never made the big bucks, some if not most of the staff on the promotions team were earning £25 plus per hr. work life balance is fantastic and I still managed to earn well and save well. I would recommend this job to those that can sell, work hard and are very focused.
Pros
Great pay and work life balance .
Cons
Early 9am starts

I worked at this lovely and personable studio for over 5 years. In the end we lived to London but I would have stayed a lot longer with Clifton. I worked in a few of their departments and was always treated well and with respect. They do demand, getting onboard with customer service and hard work but the pay and trust they place in you are great reward. I worked in marketing, sales, viewings and management. Great place to work.
Pros
Team spirit, creativity, pay, and relaxed
Cons
I had to leave

Worked in the sales side of the company straight from through A levels and onto University. I worked my way up through the ranks of the promotions team and finally left 4 years later having managed both promotions teams individually and together. The work was always flexible and well paid so long as you are focused and learn to sell. A good company to work for withbfair management
Pros
A great place to earn, learn and become management. Friendly small company that wants to succeed.
Cons
The position is freelance so no sick pay but otherwise pay is good

The shifts, hours and days were good and generally you can pick where and when you work. The studio is creative and staff lovely If you are looking to work hard and can be flexible with shifts and locations, this is a great job for you.
Pros

Cons
loong Journeys to work but compensated by short hours

Good pay if you are good and great for students as can pick shifts. Good training required however a bit more patience with new employees may be a good thing

Pay isn't as good as it's made out, it's hard work and completely crushes your soul. You have to be so pushy and unnatural, everyone looks at you like you're scum. Unreliable, unstable. Also have to pay £100 retainer which is ridiculous. Received no training which was promised and got left to it. Slimy company. They hire anyone, they just want bodies. Constantly hiring because people are constantly leaving.
Cons
all of it

I really enjoyed working here as I made some good friends and liked working as a team. We also built up good rapport with some of our customers and I enjoyed the feeling at the end when you have made a sale and the customers have had a lovely time. In a normal day we would call at least 80 people, depending on how long each phone call lasted, and normally book about 4 people on average into the studio for their photo shoot. The hardest part of the job was to convince the customers to sign up and book in. A lot of people were either very nervous, or worried about the overall cost so we had to go through all the details thoroughly.
Pros
Team Lunch if hit bonuses, Friendly staff, upbeat place to work

A low turnover of staff is usually indicative of a good working environment, and this is certainly true here. A diverse workplace which has elements of production, creativity, sales and administration. There is a very friendly and helpful management team from the top down, who are always on hand to advance your skill set.

A small independent photographic company in Bristol, arranging family and individual makeovers and photo-shoots. Pets were also allowed. We looked to give customers and experience with something they can keep for a lifetime.Cusomer care, organisation, good phone manner and manners were all essential.
