    I have been working at Lifetouch part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At least I have a job mostly doing what I like

    Cons

    Have not had a raise in 4 years, am not backed if there is a problem with a parent, always told to not be so helpful, know you have no authority to do anything to help a person, told you have to take a lunch but are not given time to do that when one is out in the field at one of the schools, can't work if you are close to going into overtime, company does not want you to work more than 30 hrs a week, poor management. Have few full time employees. ESOP is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop rushing to save man hours and let the photographers do their job for a better product that will be purchased by the client. I understand completely why people are not buying our pictures as they are sloppy. Teach the photographer to look at their subject and fix what is bad like a collar that is half in and half out, food on the face and so on. I do QC and know the photographer can not be looking at the client.

    Poor pay and excessive wear on your car.

    I have been working at Lifetouch full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Get to interact with a lot people. Overall staff can be quite friendly at first. The camera set up is foolproof and about as creative as raking leaves.

    Cons

    Poor pay and very little if any advancement opportunities. Favoritism is rampant. Some employees are given more hours over others. Having to drive very long distances to get to some of the schools. This will lead to quite of bit of wear on your vehicle. Benefits are lousy. My advice: avoid!
