I worked at Photo-Me International full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You really don't want to work here. There isn't one Pro I could think of.

Cons

Very poor management, very French concentric view of the world. Zero opportunity for advancement, no project management. They've increased profits for the owner by cutting back people way past “the bone”. Internal systems are stuck in the 1970's, company culture is 1970's. Suits and executive washroom style culture, management silo's. Passport photo's are the only cash cow, and when EU regulations require biometrics company will be crippled.

Advice to Management

Replace everyone who has been with the company more than 7 years.

    I worked at Photo-Me International part-time

    Pros

    I got a higher wage than i should have for my age

    Cons

    My days did not get changed to accommodate for me attending college when I first started even though I had been told it was sorted. It took over a month for some of my holidays to get authorised after my manger was changed, I found out i had the holiday a week before I was meant to be off. When our store was being closed down all the staff there were not in the know of what was going on, so myself and another girl there stopped coming in, we didn't know if the store was open or not as to our knowledge it was already meant to have been shut. I received my last pay slip (which includes my leavers pay and due holiday pay) I have got none of it, I have been left with no money, I was due to be paid nearly 1 grand (which to me currently is a lot of money) and I have been left with nothing. I contacted head office and was passed to the 'correct' service to be told it wrong and to be passed over again (what a joke) my details have been took and apparently given to HR but they have yet to call me back. Wouldn't ever recommend working for them, management is a joke and sadly it's staff that suffer.

    Advice to Management

    Sort everything out, wouldn't recommend. Can find most of the products cheaper else where.
