  1. "Great Place of Work!"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance
    Current Employee - Communications Specialist 
    Recommends

    I have been working at Legacy Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training system, organized, helpful, and accommodating location manager, co-workers are energetic and friendly

    Cons

    systems can be slow at times, but that comes with having a lot of clients, so it’s understandable (but it does NOT interfere with quality of clients needs)

    Advice to Management

    if the systems get slower at some point it MAY interfere with the quality of completing clients needs and then, they should be considered to update the system or find an alternative etc

    We are thrilled that you enjoyed our training program. It is important for us to give our new hires all the skills and training they need to be successful in their job. As far as our systems being slow - I am not sure what you are referring to because we use the latest in technology. ...

    I worked at Legacy Studios full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall, most of the people are nice.

    Cons

    While all of the coworkers I had during my seasonal time at this job were nice, it didn't make up for the amount of overtime that was mandated and the poor hourly rate I received. I can't speak for others, but I only made $12, which is not livable -- at least not where I live. I was also told when I started that there would be opportunity for overtime, when in actuality, they would be forcing overtime due to poor time...

    Advice to Management

    First and foremost, hire more people when you receive more jobs and don't treat your workers like workhorses. Overtime should be OPTIONAL, as stated in my initial interview -- not mandatory, but that's just my opinion. Overworked employees will never produce good output, and 12 hours days 5 days a week is not doable, and shouldn't be enforced. If the work can't get done in 8 hours, then you either need more employees,...

    Thank you for your comments and I am sorry if you misunderstood the job requirements. When hired, the pay was clearly discussed and was advertised in the ad. The overtime was also noted in the ad and was discussed in the interview process. This is a seasonal job and requires a significant ...

    We appreciate all the hard work our photographer do! When hired we are very clear that this is a full time position but it is only seasonal. We photograph school pictures and thus follow the calendar of schools. Our fall season is definitely our busiest time of year. We are always ...

    I have been working at Legacy Studios part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and relaxed work

    Cons

    A few too many bitter people about the transition.

    Advice to Management

    Hold a few meetings and find out what the senior photographers have in mind to make the transition easier.

    Everyone is so welcoming and helpful I was so nervous on my first day of training but that quickly went away I have never had a job where the people were so friendly and I am truly so honored to be apart of it.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Legacy Studios full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Consistent Schedule, lots of potlucks

    Cons

    Randomly, without notice paychecks would be paper and not direct deposit. Lack of transparency. Not enough support from upper management. Not so great health insurance options.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and let employees know what is going on. Telling people they're taking an unpaid week off with just one week of notice is unethical.

    I have been working at Legacy Studios part-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Experience in photography, meeting new people, something different everyday, travel. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    Too much travel and you're only given $0.25/mile. I wasn't told that most of the jobs would be more than an hour away from the office and my home. I also wasn't informed that this was a mostly seasonal job and they only start you at $12.50/hour.

    Advice to Management

    My manager just left and he had no idea what he was doing. The new one seems like a huge improvement but I'm still pretty disillusioned with the company. Management should try to make their employees feel like this could be a career rather than a stepping stone job.

    I worked at Legacy Studios part-time

    Pros

    Such a fun company to work for. I got to interact with children of all age ranges everyday and I worked alongside some pretty awesome people. I had a great work/life balance and that was so important to me. I was also still able to keep my other job. They were so flexible with my schedule. Great company to work for!

    Cons

    There are no cons for me.
