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

    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.

    I worked at Mom365 full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work is easy and it's good work for those coming out of high school.

    Cons

    Definitely not something you can turn into a career. The supervisor's really don't listen to their employees and treat them as if they are dirt on the ground. And there have been No Raises in the last 10+ years.

    Advice to Management

    The attitudes of all the team supervisors need to change. If you want employees to do their job efficiently then they should be respected. Too many times i have seen people mistreated because they had issues with standing or sitting to long and are told to deal with it. Or even when someone was pregnant and uncomfortable they were told they cant adjust themselves in their seat or prop their feet up to relieve pressure from sitting in uncomfortable chairs.

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

    Pros

    - Hours are great. I start each day at 10am. I leave when all the babies have been photographed. Normally around 2 pm, sometimes earlier, sometimes later.
    - If the hospital is busy and in a good area, commission is relatively easy to make. I've never made minimum wage - I always make enough in commission that I don't make the fall back rate that is minimum wage.
    - Working in a hospital setting is nice. Hospital treats me like staff.
    - Some flexibility, you can request certain days off in advance if needed without being told no or made to feel bad. My hospital has multiple staff that work it, so we cover each other when needed.
    - Paid via direct deposit twice a month.
    - Benefits
    - I like that I work most of my hours while my kids are in school. I also work four days a week, on the four days that work best for me.

    Cons

    - Fussy babies are hard to photograph. You NEED to have patience for this job. Sometimes you'll have three rooms, and in all rooms mom is nursing babies - so you're left waiting a bit for when baby is ready. The babies control how these photo shoots go.
    - We're in hospitals 365 days a year - you might work holidays. They do offer holiday pay though and normally it's only a few hours out of the day for you to work. It doesn't personally bother me.

    Pros

    Good if you like babies but

    Cons

    bad if you actually want pay. I haven't actually even worked a shift.

    They told me there was a 3 week waiting period and I'd have to take all sorts of vaccinations and then a 2 week training period. Though they were paying, the pay was a joke. They were offering a "minimum wage" of $9... The minimum currently is $10.50-$11.00. As for the so called commision, they're offering you 20% of $150, seriously? I'd be doing all the work, they should at least do minimum wage + commision or 50% commision.

    Pros

    Independent working environment, commission-based wages. Plus, you get to play with babies and cameras!

    Cons

    Time-management can be an issue because you are forced to run on baby time! While the commission-based wages can be a huge plus, some days just aren't great sales days.

    Pros

    Working with babies is amazing.

    Cons

    You never know what your schedule will be. They call you in all the time on your off days. They nurses can be very hard to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to fix turnover and nurses relationships with the photographers. Plus fix the pay scale. These photographers work hard for little pay.

    Pros

    Creative fun job and very satisfying making beautiful memories for families that they will always have. You get to hold babies!

    Cons

    Sometimes babies will cry no matter what you try and that doesn't make for good pictures. Never knowing how much money you will make.

    Pros

    Love photographing newborns. Got to meet many nice people from the hospital.

    Cons

    Work overload with minimum compensation. Pricing for their photo packages increased a lot so costumers weren't excited to pay for them and you get paid based on commission. No true motivation from managment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involve in motivation photographers and increase salary!
    Get newer equipment (the computers and camaras were really old and slow).
