    With a salary of $19-22K per year, it should be considered a volunteer position...

    For Chicago, non-profit or not, that is slave wages...........that's about what Starbucks pays for a basic barista.

    That's $10 an hour full time. You can earn more than that working at the mall.

    Yesh, I've seen similar, where you are the designer, the shooter, and the editor (video related), but it pays as if it was one position. Yeah, one will likely get a large salary increase for making coffee in the office.

    I didn't realize non-profits paid bonuses. I wonder if they offer benefits, like health insurance. But the job market being what it is, I bet they get a lot of MFAs applying for the position.

    I am constantly reminded that I am old. I thought the position was to manage a darkroom. Didn't realize digital workstations and inkjet printers constituted a "lab".

    In my former position at a university we paid more than that for student lab assistants, but the work was one hell of a lot more fun and satisfying than working at a mall!

    In modern terminology at university photo depts, IMHE, a computer room that has photoshop installed and fine art quality printers is commonly known as a Digital Photo Lab when there is also a traditional film photo lab in near proximity.

    It's that "modern" that gets me every time.
