    I have been working at Mom365 part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The photographer becomes part of the documentation of Mom and Dad's newborn photographs, of which they will have forever; and the beauty of this is they get to be a part of the photo shoot, to share in the joy of this experience, right in their hospital room.

    Cons

    The only downside that I see to working at Mom 365 is if you are not committed to giving 100% to the job. If you commit to all the tools given, during the training process and look at this job as an honor and a joy to be part of a family's history, there will be no downside,

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully when interviewing for this position, you can feel the desire in an applicant to strive to be the best he or she can be, both from a photography standpoint and a good solid respectful human being

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, your basically your own boss and part time is TRUELY part time. You leave the job by 2 or if you please you can stay longer.

    Cons

    Photography training should be more in depth
    If your not a photographer by nature it can be hard and if your not a sales person by nature it can be hard too. It's really a job for someone that can figure things on their own which is good.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to manager she's wonderful and helpful as can be but hope new updated photo gifts will be available they styles haven't changed since the 90's

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

    Pros

    The company has ruined their reputation so badly that there are no pros

    Cons

    The company has turned a beautiful thing into a nightmare for employees and new moms! My hospital was so understaffed that I was working 7 days a week but only 2 hours a day because the birth rate was so low! My take home pay for 2 weeks of work was 187.00 That's SEVEN DAYS A WEEK for 14 DAYS! It didn't matter that I showed up on time, every time! It didn't matter that my photo's were beautiful and I exceeded photo goals. It also didn't matter that I listened to the nurses complain daily about Mom365! When I discussed this with my manager she told me to BUY THEM COOKIES! So now I'm supposed to bribe nursing staff with cookies from money I don't have? The kicker to all of this is these fools are breaking federal law daily and were sued in Florida over this! They want you to drive to the grocery store to buy money orders when you receive cash payments and then go to the post office off the clock and not even pay me for mileage

    Advice to Management

    File Bankruptcy and change your name, you might survive for another 2-3 years with the contracts you have but the hospitals and photography community have caught on to your scheme. Your Facebook page is filled with negative feedback from parents because of your poor quality products. You've taken a beautiful moment and turned it into a nightmare for parents

    I worked at Mom365 part-time

    Pros

    Babies babies babies. Nice hospital staff once they get used to another new face since there seems to be high turnover.

    Cons

    Hard to make much above minimum wage due to the hours, number of births and the need to sell hard to a new mom. Also, corportate is unorganized and sort of leaves you to fend for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Rein in your DMs and support photogs instead seeing them as a burden. Tech support was unfriendly and un supportive when it came to equipment failure resulting in lost wages and lost sales. And be forthcoming with expected salary. I was sold a bill of goods on what my average hourly would be.

    I have been working at Mom365 part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have been a photographer with Mom365 for over 8 years now and have always loved the rewarding feeling I get in each room when I see the looks on parents and family members' faces while viewing their beautiful baby's photographs. As a Mom365 photographer you get to be a part of this very joyous time and provide parents with beautiful memories that they will cherish forever. It's more than just taking pictures and making a sale, it's becoming part of this important time in their lives and providing them with irreplaceable moments.

    The earning potential for this job is excellent and really put into your own hands, if you are motivated and willing to work hard and do your best, you will succeed and make good money even on a part time basis. As a Mom365 photographer you are self managed which doesn't mean there isn't any support out there for you if you need help. You are part of a large team of photographers from nearby hospitals that are always willing to help out if you have questions or need extra assistance, as well as a district manager who oversees these hospitals and continually checks on your progress to make sure that you are succeeding to your fullest potential.

    Not only do you get to become a part of every new baby's life for a short time, you become part of the hospital staff that will greet you every morning with a smile and often times a list of rooms waiting anxiously for you to photograph their baby. They see the beautiful work being done and encourage parents to get their baby's photographs taken before you even visit them for the first time.

    Cons

    While the hours can be flexible, there is no set ending time to your day which can cause some photographers inconvenience if they need to be somewhere and aren't done with all of their babies for that day. There are slow days and busy days so you never know when you will be done on any given day.

    Most people might think that the best part of this job is "playing" with the babies, but this is actually the hardest part. Patience is key and a top priority for this job as babies are often times uncooperative and become fussy during the photography process. But with patience and persistence success can be achieved. I like to say that this is the hardest job I've ever loved!

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

    Pros

    The baby pictures are adorable in most cases.

    Cons

    Outbound calls go2 moms who took pix. Some want2 order but a lot choose 2 hava family friend or relative take the same pix cheaper. It's hard to also suggest the partner offers, sell& meet the expected sales quotas.

    Advice to Management

    Give the reps the ability to give greater discounts or a free product to entice more families to buy

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

    Pros

    - Photographing babies is great!

    - There's no limit to how much money you can make, it's totally up to you. Your paycheck is 100% commission or an hourly fallback rate, whichever is higher. I never had to get the fallback rate because my commission was always higher, even when I was just starting out. From time to time there are contests and bonus programs that can make you earn even more.

    - It never gets boring because each room is different and there's always the potential for a big sale. You might go in a room where the parents don't want to buy anything and on the next room you sell a big collection and make over $100 in commission.

    - There's ongoing help for you to improve your performance. You get training, mentoring and workshops. I never saw myself as a seller, I only ever thought of myself as a photographer. But once I was trained, I was able to start selling immediately. You are given all the necessary tools to do well.

    - You're not micromanaged. My boss is really great, she encourages us and she is always willing to listen to us and solve any issues in the best way possible.

    The work you do is nice and if you dedicate yourself, believe in what you're doing and follow the steps they give you, you can make really good money for a part time job.

    Cons

    - If your hospital has a low birth rate, you might not get many babies to shoot

    Advice to Management

    It could be nice if there was some sort of program through which we could share and get rewarded for good ideas. I'd love to hear about the strategies used by the best photographers.

    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...
