    Employee, November 2021

  • Best thing

    50% discount off food, free food using 4 point system on shift

    Worst thing

    You can’t clock out until after you receive your food, even if it’s busy and you wait 20 mins for food, leaving only 25 mins for your break. Rude managers particularly the younger ones, takes too long to get new uniform, people call in sick whenever they want you you are expected to cover for them and work their shifts. Basically not allowed to ask for weekends off, they get suspicious if you do and only give them off to favourites. Constantly understaffed and the managers are running around like headless chickens wondering why when the answer is in their face. Long hours, breaking your back for only £7.50 an hour only to get treated like rubbish. Avoid. Even if you can set your own schedule and it’s good for students, it’s not worth the stress

    Management, breaks, pay, hours almost everything down to the staff and the actual job itself. If you want to feel valued DO NOT work here, you are treated as a number and your only purpose is to make money and you’re just a ‘labour cost’ to them.
