I worked at Mom365 part-time (More than a year)
Convenient/flexible schedule, great pay potential (commission or hourly, whichever is more), involvement from managers, you are a part of a team but work independently, working with babies and families is amazing, can move up within the company quickly.
Hospital settings can be unpredictable. You may have to wait a long time to get into a room. If you're in a hospital with a high birth rates you can work longer hours than expected. Some days you may work an hour and the next day you may have to work 8 hours. This can change often.
Advice to Management
I've worked in two different districts and had the opportunity to witness the difference. My old district (Baltimore), the managers were very involved and we could reach out to them at any time and receive feedback quickly. In my last district (North Carolina), it was as if you are totally on your own. The managers would reach out sometimes but no follow ups. The photographers there did not follow company policy and they had lost their contract once before and I could see why. There was no involvement from the managers, except emails about weekly and monthly sales or photo tips. In my Baltimore district we did great with sales and I feel it's because we felt supported and we were always updated on anything happening within the company or our manager would just call to see how we are doing, personally or with work. Nothing like that in NC and the sales, I personally feel, reflect that. Management there really need to become more active with the photographers in this district and make sure company policy is being followed at ALL times. Because word of mouth travels. If someones love one has a bad experience with our company at one hospital it may prevent another love one or friend to instantly decline us based on what someone else has experienced. Which results in lost sales

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mom365 (Baltimore, MD (US)) in August 2013.
The manager will ask general questions to find out about your integrity, social skills, and comfort level with photography and sales. They want to make sure you're comfortable handling their expensive photo equipment. Your ability to comfort mom with showing we are professional photographers and produce quality photos. And your comfort level with sales. Because you will have to sale, #1 part of this job. Because you could possibly earn 25% (depending on district) of each order you get. And I've had total orders in a day of over $1500. So they want to make sure you'll be comfortable with what's required. But it's a outstanding company to work for and they will not pressure you to sale but it's understood that it's required. They want to make sure you will present yourself in a professional manor at all times. Because you not only have to interact with families but also all medical staff on the unit.
