    Hi guys,
    i have a jab interview with Our365 baby photography. Does anybody here have any experience with them.

    I currently only sell my stuff on the microstock sites but have been looking to break into other areas, esp portrait photography and thought Our365 could be a nice lead in and offer me training to eventually break off and do this kinda thing on my own.

    If anyone here knows anything about these guys, i'd love to hear your feedback.

    Thanks :)

    Don't know much, other than that they are very commercial, and really like hard-core salesmanship. They seem to hire a lot of MWAC's of questionable skills...

    At the interview, they will not care too much about your phoography skills or equipment. They are interested in your sales skills. I believe they used to be commission only pay. But I could be wrong.

    If the job is too easy to get then the pay is harder to get.

    When I had my daughter in Nov of 2010 I marked "yes" to 365 coming in. I was just too curious. I felt so bad for the photographer. She had ok equipment but she didn't seem to know how to use it. She also wanted me to spot her while she dangled my newborn from a sling. Yeah, That didn't happen. I felt bad for her so I gave her a 20 bill and said thanks but no thanks.
