    I have been working at Lifetouch full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you like to travel & photograph new places then this job is great. A great place to start upping your game on portraiture photography.

    Cons

    The pay is 100%commissioned based. Expect to have a lot of down time & collecting unemployment. Your pay is solely relied upon the outside rep. bringing in new business.The company is old school with the issues that never seem to be resolved. Your travel expenses are paid for but you have to fork up the money for hotel, gas, and food initially. Your schedule is subject to change week to week.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate properly with all level of operation & omit favoritism.

    A fast paced environment

    Former Employee - Retail Associate in Sun Valley, CA

    I worked at Lifetouch part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I had the chance to meet families who most of the time were very happy with the way their photographs came out. The team was hard working and most exceeded expectations.

    Cons

    The wait time of appointments during the holiday season was chaotic with wait times of up to a half hour. Many parents were disappointed of this and thus created a stressful environment for the employees who had no control over it since staff was limited.

    Advice to Management

    Busy times of the year should require extra help.

    I worked at Lifetouch full-time

    Pros

    Pays for driving time Covers gas expenses Paid for mileage

    Cons

    Schedules are very last minute and can change last minute as well Company does not consider your safety and sends you to very sketchy areas No insurance is offered, yet you are required to wipe kids noses and be in schools with sick kids Told you are usually done by noon but there are many days that you are asked to stay for pm classes Very early mornings, sometimes leaving by 4:30am Company may send you 100+ miles in each direction for one day

    Advice to Management

    Do more to consider the safety of your employees when scheduling them in high crime areas.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    This job had good pay as well as decent hours, since I was only called when there was a prom in my local area. It was fun, working with students and helping the photographer

    Cons

    The cons of this position are firstly it was seasonal work. The work only consisted of a few months during prom season which is usually may through late june.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to offer more work elsewhere in the company when there are no proms occurring during the year.

    Working with kids is always fun and the benefits are great. It's a great company with great people and a solid working experience. Flexible schedules.

    Cons

    The pay is too low for the amount of time and driving that is spent.

    Advice to Management

    Higher wages and a little more organization would be great. Happier employees make more productivity and happier clients.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    sorry, there are none I can think of

    Cons

    This is a dieing company that uses you and spits you out, no benefits, no wage increase, no Future, save your time and energy and look elsewhere. the bosses and plant manager only care about the numbers, nothing else and if they have to step over your dieing carcass to to get there they have no problem with that!

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the core polices that Lifetouch once had, care about and take care of your employees and they will care about and take care of you! give something back & stop taking everything away!
