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

Pros

Great team environment, very supporting. Lots of opportunities to grow and learn new skills in different departments. Freedom and flexability that is traditionally associated with an outside sales position. Challenging and demanding for part of the year and more relaxed in the non-school year times (summer, Christmas, etc.)

Cons

Durring slow times one is required to do work that may be out of normal duties. Lots of wear and tear on your vehicle that could be better compensated for.

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

    Pros

    Entry level job, good if you wanted to gain experience.

    Cons

    The "customer is always right" mentality resulted in a lot of customers treating the employees pretty poorly. Morale was low and resentment was high. It was ridiculous what customers expected for the prices they were willing to pay. Also, it was pretty clear that management didn't value employees as people, but only as part of the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    If you treated your employees better instead of catering to unreasonable customers, your employees may last a little longer.

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

    Pros

    Working with babies and young children all day. Sales are easy if you are in an area with good economic growth. You can work at more than one studio for extra hours if you don't mind driving extra.

    Cons

    Hours are never steady and change drastically throughout the year. Ratings are based on how much you make per sale, which may be out of your control due to the need to pull in random customers who are not prepared to spend much. You may be forced to work alone, which requires always you to complete all studio functions without delay (answering phone calls, shooting sessions, greetings customers, booking appointments, selling photographs...). Some studios were less professional than others, with drama happening often.

    Advice to Management

    Consider smaller training groups. Also take into consideration the number of pulls a person sells when calculating their weekly/monthly averages. Make more studio members full-time employees so they have more benefits and higher work efficacy. Promote your studios through local television advertisement during slow times of the year.
