To be avoided

All Hospitality companies have a had a difficult time due to COVID, Ch&co must have been one of the first to demand staff take four weeks unpaid leave. They went through 2 painful redundancies of support staff which has left the few remaining as disengaged, heavy workloads with unrealistic profits and no job security.

Pros

The team spirit with colleagues

Cons

Unachievable work loads, staff have been reduced too low and it’s all about volume and bottom line profit

Worst company I ever worked for. The managements are under qualified, rude, unprofessional and treating the employees in poor manners, I do not recommend this company to anyone.

Productive and fun work place

I have learned many different aspect of hospitality services, the online training was essential to deliver the best customer service possible and also work in a safe environment. The hardest part of the job was to lift heavy boxes upwards or downwards the stairs. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendly environment with most of the staff members.

Pros

Free Lunches

Cons

We were short in staff while busy times.

Unreliable

Made everyone redundant even though we could have been furloughed. There are much smaller companies that still have their staff furloughed. Really bad senior Management.

Disappointing

Things started very well but when your face no longer fits you are quickly isolated and forced out. Shame the company feels it appropriate to answer all reviews with a generic response copy and pasted.

Nothing at all

Untrustworthy, liars and time wasting.

Bad experience

Don’t have expectations. There is no support from managers. Politics works, it matters who you know. Doesn’t matter what you know. Overall unprofessional.

All about profit over staff

Don't waste your time with ch&co all management do is lie, lie and lie. Every under management will do anything to reach the top. If you love the catering industry work some where else STAY AWAY.

Pros

None

Cons

No support
