    I have been working at Jessops full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get to meet interesting people. Money off cameras and accessories. Free printing service when the managers off. Staff have similar interests in photography.

    Cons

    Very long hours for minimum wage. Zero hours contracts as well. Boring work day when few customers come in. No phones allowed at all for the lower employees. Head office and the web team are completely useless and the sales assistants are the ones who get to deal with the complaints. Always being told to boost sales and add ons which is incredibly hard when no customers come through the door.

    Advice to Management

    Actually count how many customers come through the door
