Once I put in my two week's notice, the following two weeks I had sales averages of $129 and $121. Had they not reamed me so much on sales in general during my slump (and even when I was doing well), I would have stuck around, but instead: gone and proud of it.

I was at the grocery store the other day getting rung out for a $7 purchase when I realized that working at Sears Portrait Studio was like being a grocery store cashier. Except a $7 purchase would get the cashier in trouble for not selling enough per transaction no matter how happy I was with her service and no matter how efficiently she did her job.

Perhaps your sales average came up because the pressure was off...being stressed out does not mix well with this type of job-I swear those kids can sense it and don't do as well, which affects the sale.
I'm curious- what kind of individual average did the studio manager run?
