  • Best thing

    The team I work with daily are brilliant - fun, helpful and a good bunch of people. Some of the managers are great too and always help and get stuck in. Discount is great especially as a student!

    Worst thing

    The management are difficult about silly things. For example I’m a full time student doing 5days a week/35 hours and then then expect me to work every Saturday and Sunday on top of that meaning I wouldn’t get a day off for weeks. I’ve made it clean my studies come first but that means nothing to them. I have never worked with anyone as lazy, poorly mannered or unhelpful as one of my managers is but the manager above her is worse. In a review session about my work ethic I was never told a single positive, only negatives and after discussing this with my team they were disappointed and ashamed as they all feel I’m a brilliant team member who takes on the tasks others don’t want and cracks on with work. In general- management hugely lets the side down, we don’t get paid enough to get treated so badly by them and frankly the turn over of staff js so high mainly due to management not being flexible when there is definitely the ability to be. I’ve been there 6 months and I’ve seen multiple staff come and go in that short space of time.

    Mitchells & Butlers Front of house staff, December 2023

  • Best thing

    The customers and the team around you, generally a great bunch and customers are on the whole very understanding.

    Worst thing

    Head office havent a clue what is actually going on in the business, it is far too top heavy with more consultants/advisors than one can shake a stick at. There is a total lack of understanding of the cost of living and the relationship with rates of pay, with the hours worked by their teams and the demands that these place on the teams. In addition the senior management have no understanding of the impact of their decision, how their unrealistic labour targets are impacting the delivery of the brand and fail to be operations led to coach staff/management on how to achieve the targets more effectively. The link between sales growth and labour costs/control is totally lost on the current Operations Director in the brand that I work in. The rates of pay are frankly insulting and demeaning and the Management by laptop culture of the senior team will prevent the brand achieving its end goals. The store based teams need more practical training on how to actually perform certain tasks, for example interviewing.
