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

    Pros

    The pay was good, lots of overtime opportunity
    You don't need any prior photography experience, all the training is taught within the on-boarding week

    Cons

    Bad hours, not consistent
    Some days I would need to get to the office at 5am and I would leave the office at 7pm. Yes I would get overtime but it's difficult to manage work-life balance.

    Pros

    great learning opportunity. paid drive time and gas card. sometimes creative work.

    Cons

    lack of communication between schools and office. Pay is not what it should be for talented and reliable workers. no raises. when raises did happen last year, it was a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Cost of living increases? A pay structure that makes sense for people using their own equipment and wear and tear on cameras and vehicles.
