What people are saying about sick pay at Zizzi

  • Best thing

    The majority of customers are respectful and understanding when things get really busy and short staffed. They’re friendly and not all of them will leave a tip but don’t let that bother you. Because the real reward is getting to interact and bond with customers. For example, giving them small compliments. It’s rare to come across customers who are rude, aggressive, or the typical Karen who demands to speak to the manager.

    Worst thing

    Unpaid breaks, and not all the team members you work with will like you or give you an easy time. Managers may be difficult to work with and may blame you for not doing something on time or doing something else when you weren’t told to. Every day is different.
    Improper training. I’ve been at my current job for nearly 2 months and I still haven’t been trained on packing takeaways or making drinks or answering the phone for bookings.
    And I still haven’t had a 1:1 with one of the managers. I need to know what I’m doing well and what I still need to work on. They don’t give the time of day to conduct these. To at least check on your employees and their performance.
