    I have been working at Mom365 part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to work with precious newborns and do their very first pictures. The company provides you with all the equipment so you have no overhead costs. The poses are very easy and they really help with sales. My manager is always sending or saying encouraging messages to me or the whole team. About every other month she has contests and we can win gift cards! When the births are up and you have new families you can make really good pay, at least I make more than I did making more than I did working full time at an office job.

    Cons

    If births are down or right after Christmas sometimes sales are low. You have to be prepared that low births and certain post holidays sales will be lower.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe raise commission for photographers who pass a certain amount in sales so they know the higher the sales the more potential for future pay. More incentives or contests to keep us motived...

    I have been working at Mom365 part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work with some fantastic coworkers, Our DM is one of the best bosses I'v ever had. I love training new people and seeing the joy in moms eyes, and I get to photograph babies.

    Cons

    Not knowing how your day is going to be tell you get to work. You could have 1 baby or you could have 15.

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see an increase in commission.

    Pros

    Working with newborns
    Excellent management
    Flexible schedule
    Creative job
    Excellent training. If you do what you're taught in training, you will succeed. If you don't do well here, then it's your own fault.

    Cons

    Some long days, some short days depending on amount of babies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Our DM is Incredible. She loves her team like family and does everything she can to help people succeed.

    Pros

    This job is very flexible. You need to get off early no problem. Working with babies is awesome! You get out what you put into the job. If you have a good attitude and work ethic you will do very well!

    Cons

    Paid only twice a month is not fun. I wish the pay was a bit more.

    I have been working at Mom365 part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There really are no positives! The latest scheme is to ask current employees to post positive reviews on glassdoor to get their rating back up! The positives you see are coming from Managers and employees who are scared of those managers!

    Cons

    Minimum Wage - Treated like crap- and constantly expected to drop whatever you are doing to fill in when asked, if you don't expect to be fired or replaced and given the slow days at the hospital

    Advice to Management

    Skip right over the district managers and start talking to your photographers! oh the secrets we can tell! Pay us what we are worth which is NOT min wage!

    I have been working at Mom365 part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hospital staff is amazing
    Love working with the babies
    Great starter job as a single mom
    9 times out of 10, I was able to have "mom" hours

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours (unless you're the only employee covering)
    Pay isn't all that great

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be that when an employee is out on medical leave, take steps into getting someone in to assist when needed. My coworker has been out for nearly 2 months and I've not had any help come. Granted, my hospital is a low volume hospital but like everyone else, we have days where we get extremely busy. Not only do I do the photography with this company but I am also a contracted employee with another company within the hospital. My manager is aware of my other position and said that if I started feeling overwhelmed, to let her know. I'm still waiting. I worked a total of 52 days straight before I was able to get 1 day off and that only came because I was in the emergency room with my child all night. I loved working for the company and after quitting last year, when a position became available, I jumped on it. I'm not going to sit here and down the whole company but honestly after all of this, when I leave the company again, I will not return. I'm dragged out and it's taking a major toll on me personally.

    I worked at Mom365 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Part time work, flexible schedule,

    Cons

    young trainer, well informed & knowledgeable, we were at different places in life, drama each day...pay not enough to live on or start to like on

    Advice to Management

    Pricing scared off most moms, starting at $499 was too high for all parents and with barely a day old baby. Baby will be cuter the next week. Pitch college students.

    I worked at Mom365 full-time

    Pros

    working with the hospital staff was awesome. I learned quite a bit from them regarding hospital etiquette, caring and calming newborns etc.
    loved working with babies and parents
    loved taking pictures

    Cons

    all the pictures look the same, no creativity at all. standard poses you could get at any portrait studio.
    heavy on sales and numbers. If a parent said no you kept on them till they changed their mind. over priced packages
    some days would be there for an hour, sometimes till 7:00pm
    money really NOT worth the work you do.

    Advice to Management

    give more freedom to the photographers
    pay them what they are worth.
    and STOP trying to take advantage of tired parents!!!!

    Fun, exciting, great staff. This is a very independent style job.

    Hours depend on how many babies need pictures, commission based salary

    Pros

    Fun to work with the newborns. Have learned a lot about soothing and handling newborns. The nursing staff are your coworkers and they are great.

    Cons

    Pay is not worth your effort or time. You are supposed to photo every baby and if they don't purchase, all your efforts earn you Zero. Schedule is all over. They take days away even when you need them. This is not a career. Just a part time fill in position.

    Advice to Management

    Offer compensation for every baby photoed regardless if they purchase. And still have commission structure for sales.
