Enjoyed working with the company the management team always made themselves available. Didn't feel their was much room for advancement though. The mileage rate was not enough.

IMAGE CAPTURE (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB6 December 2017
Depending on the month or week, you will always be busy doing a job order. you will never not be busy. I enjoyed this job because I love photography and editing. Also just seeing all the smiling faces on kids just lifted up your day when you're feeling low.
Management is very uplifting and positive, only very serious when need to be but other than that they are such wonderful people. The hardest thing about the job is to make sure you come across every defective detail. You need to make sure you don't miss anything and that the picture looks well, picture perfect.
Pros
Positive environment, easy and understandable jobs
Cons
you need a keen eye for detail. not suited for those who struggle visually

Repetitive task but has to be detailed and precise. No room for mistakes.
Keyer and Data Entry (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB16 November 2017
It was a light work where people are supposed to work in repetitive manner that requires detail orientation and preciseness. Aside from that, being an independent as well as team player are both important in the job. Management is good and they listen and adjust to employees' concerns. The hardest part is achieving a quota in certain areas and being exposed long hours in computer which results to eye strain and back/shoulder discomfort, however, proper body mechanics, exercises and relaxation are highly encouraged at work.
Pros
Repetitive tasks and light work
Cons
Has to meet daily quota of work in certain areas of work

Capturing school memories is a fun and challenging job
Photographer Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Niagara Region18 August 2017
School photography is a demanding job, both physically and mentally. A good photographer must be able to relax his/her subject and capture a great expression in a short time. She must be able to work independently, be reliable, flexible and cheerful.
One of the benefits of the position is keeping the same hours as the schools ie Christmas, March break and summer holidays as in the schools.
Working in a different school every day with different staff and administration keeps the job fresh and exciting.
Pros
working in a different place everyday
Cons
transporting heavy equipment

Mostly fun
Photographer (Current Employee) –  Brandon, MB16 August 2017
I've had the opportunity to work for Lifetouch. I love the job over all but the amount of work and pay for a seasonal job, isn't enough. most of the time the schedules aren't made until the week before. most of my coworkers had more than one job as the hours were unreliable some weeks. Other than the hours that we were given and the amount of time we are given to give our other employers notice, overall the job was enjoyable and fun to do.
Pros
Lively and upbeat work settings.
Cons
lots of traveling with no guaranteed end time to your days.

Poor pay
Photographer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB29 January 2017
For the amount of work that one does during the day, the pay is very poor. You are to be set up and ready to go before the schools open. You must photograph every student before the end of the day.

The management was quite pathetic. They basically tell you to get out there and good luck with the day.

Training is fantastic, but in the field itself with no support just starting out was tough to do.

I left this company because the pay was very poor.
Pros
Fun atmosphere
Cons
Poor pay

Great people to work with as well as atmosphere
Photographer (Current Employee) –  Belleville, ON15 January 2017
While this has been a great company to work for, such as the people, atmosphere and even some photo contests you can enter. I have to say that it doesn't pay well and comes with plenty of down time, not really suitable for someone raising a family, but perfect for someone who needs semi-casual work.
Pros
New location every day, freedom to creativity during Grad season
Cons
Low pay, not enough hours to support a family

Great satellite location management and office staff
Photographer (Current Employee) –  Red Deer, AB30 December 2016
There is a lot of travel required for the position of photographer, and for the fall season photography no special vehicle needed, a spacious car is perfect. But to go on to grad photography, a larger vehicle (mini-van) is lovely. Company does have a van for travel use when travelling for several days or long distances. Training is provided and is thorough for knowing the camera system, but a person will continue to learn how to trouble-shoot the program used and learn how to deal with the staff and students at the schools. This job requires a person with a positive attitude, steady head, and LOTS of patience, as well as someone who does not mind sometimes waking up at 4 am to drive 2-3 hrs to location.
Pros
Good pay, good management, encouragement to continue
Cons
Early mornings, long hours, difficult and picky customers

Low pay. Boring work
Group photographer (Former Employee) –  Regina, SK23 December 2016
I didn't enjoy this job. I was the group photographer. You tell hundreds of kids where to stand and you get them to smile.

This is basic point and shoot photography not advanced professional photography.

You work with very young women. It has a high school vibe. Managment is great though.

Trainning was longer than it needed to be. This is a two month job. They pay you 2 bucks less an hour for drive time (unless you refuse this).

The girls liked this job, but I never did.
Pros
Rental cars
Cons
Most of it

Entry level photo job. Unorganized!!!
Photographer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB30 November 2016
I enjoyed the travel and photography. I really liked that they always offered to provide a hotel for any out of town work. Staff and management were hit or miss. Very unorganized! High turnover.
Pros
Photography, travel, hotels provided for all out of town jobs.
Cons
Unorganized, stressful, high turnover, long days.
