The companies that use the PhotoHotel concept offer a number of benefits that will help you make the most of your hard-earned money, without many extra expenses. The main benefits at PhotoHotel are:
An average salary is around 1200 EUR net, without taking into account the top employees when calculating this average (we do not calculate on average those salaries of 4-5000 EUR that top performers get). In addition to the salary, an employee benefits from 2 insured meals + accommodation, their value being at least EUR 600.
In addition to the guaranteed minimum wage and sales percentage, each employee can earn additional bonuses, both financial and otherwise, when he or she reaches certain sales targets or performs specific tasks.
Employees of PhotoHotel partner companies are accommodated in rented houses, apartments or villas and are paid in advance for the whole season by the company. These places are near the hotels where the employees work. Therefore, one room may be shared by 2 employees and often, they share the common areas (kitchen, terrace, bathrooms, etc.) with at most 3-4 colleagues working in the same hotel or in nearby hotels. Employees only provide their utilities.
Two meals (lunch & dinner) are provided by the employing company, including during the free days, as long as the employees have a meal in the intended locations. Often, employees have access to dining spaces specifically designed for the employees of the hotel they work for.
Throughout the season, every employee benefits from the insurance and medical services available in the country and destination where they work. Employees of PhotoHotel partner companies benefit from the same medical rights and services available to any local employee from local and national companies in that country.
Each candidate, before leaving for their destination, participates in the PhotoHotel School, a training school in which they learn all the essentials for carrying out their activity in the destination. The assimilated information includes sales techniques, photo techniques, as well as practical simulations of the activities specific to the hotel photographer and the photo consultant.
Each destination or team leader regularly organizes team building for employees. These can consist of outings in the city, club parties and other exotic activities specific to each destination: visits to tourist destinations, sports, bungee-jumping, diving, karting, boat parties, etc.
