Horrible company. Extremely low pay, management, lack of equipment. I actually had to use some of my own equipment to do my job as Lifetouch refused to replace it. I can honestly say that I have never seen a company run any poorer than this one. I wouldn't waste my time with it. It only took me about a month to figure out how bad it was.
Scheduling no longer ideal. I had another job in the same field that paid more and guaranteed minimum hours. I did like my job, but the pay, erractic scheduling and the on calls that were always treated like hours but not paid as such unless you were called in made it hard for me to stay
Team leaders were unprofessional and rude. Making it very hard to learn. Lack of patience. Goofing off and wasting time during training. Therefore everyone didn't get to practice.
I worked for Lifetouch as a studio photographer in Ohio. Pay and hours were so low that I made less money than it cost to drive to work. Scheduling was also an issue, as the schedule was always changing and not posted until Sunday, so there was no way to plan a life in the future (family events, or college).
I worked as a printer in the lab in Chesapeake, I enjoyed the work . My problem was the changes in management and some managers undermining you to make their selves look good.
There are better jobs out there
Currently still employed, but looking for other employment. Job is EXTREMELY seasonal, in my area I really only worked 6.5 months and the hours are unpredictable-you might only work 3 hours or it might be 10. There's not a lot of room for advancement-as a school photographer the only "promotion" is to be a sports photographer, which is just as unstable/temporary. Good company, just zero opportunities for growth or stability.
It was just a seasonal opening

I haven't left yet, however when I do it will be due to a serious lack of growth potential and the unpredictable nature of the job and its responsibilities
