    I have worked for Ritz on and off full time/part time since 1996. Due to an injury from another job and being on work-comp I am not currently working there but I intend on going back when/if this whole ordeal is over. One thing you will find is it is a great plce to work to be able to build up your gear.

    i don't think i'd have the patience to be able to work at ritz. The elderly people who are switching to digital would drive my NUTS!

    Speaking from experience as a Ritz Camera emplyee. The person who decided to market any digital technology to senior citizens should be immediately executed.

    Sorry Charlie, you are OOYM! The disposable income in that bracket is amazing. Good service and patience pay off very well. ;)

    No kidding..

    If all your customers walked through that door with an intimate knowledge of your products, then you would be useless wouldn't yah? We are all headed down that path some day... respect now and hope it returns in the far future.

    btw... many would say the same about the spoiled young too.

    From past experience working at a camera store, I can assure you that you will love it, however, you will gain a multitude of experiences that will make you just want to burst when you try to explain what you believe to be the simplest common, over, and over, and over again. But the best part is when you get repeat customers and the first thing they say when they come in is "Hello __(insert your name here)___"
