    Mitchells & Butlers Chef, July 2022

  • Best thing

    The team as a whole is like a family - I couldn't name one person there who I don't like and it makes it a very enjoyable and healthy environment to work in.

    Worst thing

    Unfortunately the kitchen is quite understaffed and therefore I personally get more hours than I can sometimes handle without sufficient breaks in between shifts.


    Mitchells & Butlers Chef, July 2022

  • Best thing

    Social aspect of the job
    Good people
    Flexible shifts
    OK pay in regards to the industry as a whole
    The actual job is quite fun and every day is different
    Rewarding when guests are happy and you get good feedback.

    Worst thing

    Unsociable hours
    Work too much
    Difficult to stay in contact with friends and family
    Often expected to work without breaks and over my hours (unpaid)
    Little recognition for doing a good job but immediately noticed and bought up on any small mistake
    Constantly short staffed
    Contacted and expected to do things on days off - can never really switch off
    Lack of training when you start - thrown into deep end
