- About eight Customer Service positions
Grandpa’s has been in business for 36 years under its original ownership. The business is open seven days a week from Victoria Day weekend until Thanksgiving.
“New hires help customers dress up, pose, show them their photos, help them select mats and frames,” says Jessica MacNeill, who is returning to work at Grandpa’s for her 10th year. “In their second year, they learn how to use the photo programs and take customers’ pictures.”
About 20 to 25 people work there every summer, and most are university students. “Don’t be discouraged from applying if you have no photography experience,” says Paul Gunn. “We don’t hire based on photography skills – we can teach that. We hire based on people skills and willingness to learn.”
