Former Employee - Sales Manager in DFW, TX
Former Employee - Sales Manager in DFW, TX

I worked at Lifetouch full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work in the field with some very amazing people at the schools. If you are a strong self motivated individual it is a terrific opportunity.

Cons

Territory offices are EXTREMELY inconsistent. Old Lifetouch means male dominated, alcoholic drinking behavior, inconsistent management. condescending treatment, unclear money practices when it comes to commissions. So many cons it is really sad.
Corporately - appalling that these things are continually brought to HR's attention but continually go ignored. They have a corporate responsibility to demand better and to reprimand poor, unethical, and discriminatory behavior. They choose not to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the reports that come to you and act on them. Look at turnover, it doesn't lie. Where there is tremendous turnover, you have a problem. Get rid of Territory Managers that damage the company.

    Former Employee - Retouch in Galion, OH

    I worked at Lifetouch full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fairly good pay for seasonal retouchers
    Free popcorn on fridays
    Paid breaks

    Cons

    10 hour work days are common if the department is behind with saturdays not always being off
    Management is all about quotas and works the department to death
    Server problems tend to hinder work at the facility due to high traffic workload

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that your workers are human and have social lives outside of work. And that life isn't all about quotas and lying to your employees about being behind to make your employees work more to look good for corporate.
