Working across three separate coffee shops, often under pressure, I served customers, ensured hygiene standards were upheld, and supervised operations in an Oxford University staff cafe. Great communication and people skills played a key part in the success of this role
My day started at 10 30 am, I start by helping to serve breakfast, t 11 am we start clearing the breakfast to prepare for lunch which starts at 11 30 am and finishes at 3 30 pm. However my shift finishes at 2 30 pm but sometime I stay behind to help with the cleaning. I learn to communicate with the customers, learn what most person order so I will have their order before they even get to the counter. management was great has they kept us up to date of all change that might affect the smooth operation of the staff and work place. The work culture was relax and comfortable working with persons from different backgrounds The hardest part of the job was Cleaning up, especially Wednesday and Fridays when we do burger or fish and chips. Meeting the customers and seeing their satisfaction when you know you have done a great job and or when they come back to comment the food or the service.
free lunch and drinks
Four hours shift.
Typical day at work would be filled with interaction with customers, providing fast and friendly service. Job gives you opportunity to work as a part of the team as well as on your own. Management very understanding and highly involved in daily operations. Long hours might be the only downside to the job. Meeting and connecting with new people is definitely the best part of the job as well as being a part of fun team.
you will be understaffed and stressed out on on busy days because of this on quiet days, prepare to clean whats already just been cleaned. you will be promised the world and get, very little on the plus side staff food is fantastic the staff are mostly lovable if you can get on with the right people you will do fine
long hours is an understatment
They using people to the end. Long hours with short, unpaid break. My typical day of work starts at 8.00am, then I had break around 10.00am and no other break till finish - around 6.30pm. No possibilities for promotion. Worst place I ever work.
Free sandwich for lunch
To much to say
Shops are located in various locations, nice and desirable overall looks but immense food wastage and stressful, long shifts. Career advancement is available when you are doing what it takes.
Free coffees to employees
