    Current Employee - Photographer in East Rochester, NY

    I have been working at Lifetouch part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to work with babies and children of all ages. Schedule is nice get home by 7. But you can sleep in a little since the studio doesn't open till 10. Management is very helpful.

    Cons

    Salary is kinda unfair considering the job we do. It's hard being a photographer. It's a rewarding job but I wish it was rewarding in our pay. Or if we could accept tip. That would be nice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. I know you try hard to make everyone happy and it's hard but I am a loyal employee and I appreciate my job.

    Senior Photographer (LNSS-School Division) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Lifetouch.

    Interview Details

    It was worse than a police interrogation ! "How gay are you?" (Which went on for about 10 min. because they would not believe me, even though I'm not gay. It was illegal & insulting to even ask this)! I have never been so humiliated in my life!

    Negotiation Details
    They wanted to pay me $8/hour (like a slave) & with my many years of professional photography experience I was able to get them up to $10/hour (even for a desperate pro photographer seeking work it's still insulting for a high caliber professional).
