    • In 2010, pay for a Sears portrait manager ranged from $14 to $16 an hour, reports, versus the $9 to $10 hourly wage that Sears' studio photographers typically earn.

    Other Retail Wages

    • Most U.S. states match the federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, although several states pay more, according to July 2010 data from the U.S. Department of Labor. As of May 2008, the median hourly pay for retail salespeople was $9.86 an hour, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, with people in general merchandise, clothing and department stores earning around $9 an hour.

    Where to Work

    • Sears maintains its headquarters in St. Louis, but operates portrait studios in more than 1,000 locations throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. It advertises its portrait studio job openings on a website independent from the main Sears site (See Resources).
