Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The organisation was good, the work depending on the role is different. I started in Nov and never really got to do what my job description was, no one would tell you what was going on

Pros

Looks after staff

Cons

lack of communication

Horrible management

AMV is hands down the worst place I have ever worked. The work was not the main issue. Getting paid was. They get you to sign a contract stating you will be paid within 30 days of sending your invoice. They expect you to follow all the rules of the contract, but they can't follow their end of it whatsoever. I would constantly have to remind the owner to pay me after those 30 days have passed. They expect you to come to work without getting paid and then become angry and hostile towards you when you politely ask to be paid for the work you've done over a month ago. They have absolutely no care for paying the hardworking employees of the company. They completely overlook any kind of organization of the invoices sent to them, to a point where the employee is the one that has to tell them what has been paid for and what hasn't. The owner is constantly making unprofessional and inappropriate jokes that make everyone in the room feel extremely uncomfortable. Overall, the company has absolutely no care for the quality of work they put out. They crank videos out like a factory, so the turnaround times are very quick resulting in very low quality product. Editors are paid per finished video so they try to get them done as fast as they can in order to move onto the next one. Some of the employees were actually very knowledgeable and kind, which was nice. But very little people actually stick around long enough, because this employer is THAT bad. The work is constant, so you can definitely make good money. That is, if they paid on time. Overall, I'm sure there are better places to start - 

Pros

Gain experience, constant work

Cons

Very difficult to get paid, stressful

Extremely Lacking Management

This company is a joke. its the Costco of wedding video/photo companies and the owner is one as well. he makes extremely inappropriate jokes about clients and family members when in the editing room. The pay is mediocre at best (compared to jobs in the same category, not minimum wage). Its a trap for students who want to gain experience but don't know what they are worth. when you realize how much other cinematographers, editors, and photographers are making for the exact same job you are doing, it's eye-opening. the owner tries to pay new employees less and less as new ones come in. Even talking about how much money everyone is paid, is taboo and "wrong" according to the owner. If you work here, gain experience fast, and get out.

Great experience but very poorly managed

After working for the for a season, one can experience and know what to expect from the company. They will guarantee you work and provide it but.... you will be putting in a lot of free hours, the pay is monthly but after the first couple months they will start to fall behind and if you ask about it they will come up with excuses and start booking you less, it’s very good experience and some of the employees are very nice and knowledgeable. Over all it’s very poorly managed, and good luck getting payed on time. Experience is okay.

Pros

Experience

Cons

Management, payments, job security

Get your feet wet and get out ASAP

You'll meet some great talented people who you can learn from and make some mistakes on someone else's dime. A typical day looks like show up 1 hour before you are to be at your clients house to pick up their cards ( unpaid ) youll get a map of where to go and what shots need to be taken and special request. At the end of the day you need to go back to the office and return your cards (unpaid). You wont get paid for the first 30 days. Then you will see some money come in, and then you will start to see some bounced cheques follow. If you ask management on a status they will get their backs up and start to give you excuses. Management does not respect their staff or their clients. I have heard remarks from management mocking their clients after they have left a good chunk of money on the table for them. If you love what your do and want to be a reputable photographer/videographer find somewhere else to work for who has solid values and good work ethic.

Pros

good for experience but don't stay longer then you need to

Cons

Internal Communication, Management, Delayed/No Payment/
