I have been working at Lifetouch

Pros

If you have a passion for photography, it's a great place to work

Cons

The downside being, if you have a bad District Manager, you're just stuck. Lots of 'more more more' mentality. more sits, more numbers, policies and rules change weekly/monthly

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Lifetouch

    Pros

    I have the opportunity to improve my photography. I have met amazing people, both customers and other employees.

    Cons

    Uncertain schedule: We dont know our schedule from one week to the next whether we have work or not

    Daily schedule: in the course of a 6 hour work day, we have up to 30 sits ...lately its been closer to 24 with 2 photographers/sales consultants....thats an average of 12 per photographer....leaving us 15 min to photograph families and show our work..its just not possible

    Not enough time to do our jobs, let alone well
    Long hours 2-3 hours of drive time, set up days are brutal, work day can easily run 10-12 hours
    Customers, even in a church setting, can be very cruel.

    Give up the best part of the day, losing time with family to do this job and grossly undercompensated for it. Church division works evenings and Saturdays. By the time you get home on a Saturday night after working all day without a break...the earliest you get home is 7pm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to pay employees better. Create better opportunities for advancement, Leave Saturdays and Sundays alone. Dont schedule anything after 4.

    I worked at Lifetouch

    Pros

    hiring hopeful and well meaning people.
    making marvelous portrait memories,
    The oportunity to learn a decent job at a low but liveable wage

    Cons

    dissapointing so many hopeful and well meaning people with abrupt changes in philosophy, leadership and management. Ask how many LNSS pesidents in the last 6 years>
    Convoluted customer service that ruins the memories the photographers try so hard to create
    Right place at the right time means doors open....but rarely. and slam just as fast

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take a little risk, for gosh sake.....Esop is not the be-all end all, but also is investment money for the future of all the new folks that hope to have the opportunity you had. Thwy are losing faith fast.
