I have been working at Lifetouch part-time (More than a year)

Pros

The managers and employees are cool.

Cons

- You either get close to no hours or too many hours.
-They severely underhire during Christmas season and have no shame of begging you to come in while you are in class.
-They break the labor laws constantly on weekends and Christmas season.
-Managers don't really do their job.
-All they care about is sales and nothing else.
-Severely underpaid for all the work you put into the job.

Advice to Management

Actually hire an adequate amount of people during Christmas season. Actually appreciate your good employees and pay them better. If you can afford to pay your CEO millions of dollars of year AND can afford to give him thousands of dollars in raises each year I don't think it would hurt to raise everyone's pay. I know why everyone quits this job so quickly and I am about to be one of them.

    I have been working at Lifetouch (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you're just working for spending money and you have a spouse making good money then it's fine since you get the summers off

    Cons

    The pay is horrible, you have to work sick because not only do you not get sick pay you get points if you're out sick. So there is always someone there sick. Numerous occasions people have puked out on the work floor. Since people can take a good picture with their cell phone you would think they would try to keep experienced people. Nope, then they can hire someone in cheaper.They keep taking benefits away including some paid time off and holiday pay. To advance you need a degree but they don't allow any flex time to even go to school. You don't always know what hours you'll work or if you'll have to work Saturday so it's hard to plan anything especially for us moms with young children who need a babysitter.

    Advice to Management

    No point in it. They don't seem to listen.

    I have been working at Lifetouch full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Employee Stock Ownership Program for retirement, Company contributes 100% of stock. Company continues to grow through acquisitions. Lifetouch is a company with heart, organizes mission trips through World Servants, provides smile safe cards to grade school kids, is a partner with the center for missing and exploited children.

    Cons

    Because it is an ESOP company, benefits and perks are very small as the company watches the bottom line closely to keep profits going into ESOP. Various divisions in Lifetouch communicate very little.
