  • Best thing

    The people you work with

    Worst thing

    20 minute break on all shifts, even if it's 10 hours. Closing is a 2 man job but only ever 1 on. Only paid for the hours in your rota even though most nights you're staying at least an extra hour

  • Best thing

    Worst thing

    over worked, relied on too heavily, aren't paid well, understaffed constantly, rotas are given out 1-3 days before week starts every week but have to give two weeks notice to have a day off, HR ignores complaints about sexual harassment or other issues, no service charge included, managers are paid only 20p more than team members, given ridiculous shifts (sometimes 3 hour shifts or shifts with 3 hour splits, open/closes back to back), expected to work when sick, many people made redundant while directors are given huge cash bonuses, food is NOT fresh, mental health is not taking seriously, no recycling done, uses tons of single use plastic, etc

  • Best thing

    Supportive team and general awareness of each other’s tasks.

    Worst thing

    Meticulous online training that half of it isn’t even relevant to my role. The PR scheme to market the company as friendly and welcoming to employees is totally contradictory to the overload of tasks and expectations on the very first day.
