Great place to work with great pay and work benefits too
A very good place to work, particularly if you are hoping to progress in the service industry. They were extremely accommodating with my studies and education with some managers and members of staff making extra efforts to help me feel included and aid my development. Long hours but very rewarding.

Poor hiring practises
Côte have an interesting concept when it comes to hiring and don’t seem to always employ people on their ability to do the job or the ability to excel and build on the company’s reputation but often hire because of the applicants look ie young and conventionally attractive.

poor management and inappropriate colleges
The management is the worst. They have more managers than staff, yet the place is not managed properly. You work so hard yet you are always under appreciated. Turnover rate is high as staff constantly leave

Hard work
A good job if you don’t mind rude people, some of the kitchen were incredibly difficult to work with as had ideas above their station. Pretend to be chefs but everything of note is made in batch in the hit kitchen and sent to the restaurant. Trying to be a fine dining restaurants on budget. Also part of the service charge goes to paying new management salaries, given a script to read off and lie to paying customers.

Es como estar en el ejército. Pero en vez de armas tienes platos
Cote es un excelente restaurante. Precios muy competitivos a muy buen precio y siempre en lugares emblemáticos. Los camareros son entrenados hasta límites increíbles. Todo está estructurado por un protocolo. Cuando digo todo. Es TODO.La comida es buenísima y empezaré diciendo que te dan de comer en todos los turnos.El sueldo es competitivo muy bueno.En el título dije como el ejército y me quede corto.Tienes exámenes a diario. Has de conocer los platos como tu mano. Cosa que esta muy bien porque evita que hagas el ridículo si un cliente exigente te viene con las preguntas pertinentes e impertinentes también. Mi experiencia no fue agradable porque yo tampoco daba la talla. No me gusta que me estén encima y me digan como tengo que pensar y responder. Soy más natural y me centro más en que el cliente esté bien antes de pegarle el rollo de los elementos de los que está construido el plato y vender por vender. Yo voy más a la parte humana del negocio. No por ello diré que sea un mal sitio porque no lo es. Si tu eres una persona maniática y competitiva. Con un alto grado de tolerancia al estrés porque créeme que esos restaurantes se llenan como no puedes ni llegar a imaginarte. Eres muy organizado y preciso. Con una memoria fotográfica y coraje. En este lugar vas a sentirte bien. Si por el contrario no lo eres no vayas porque lo pasarás mal tu y tus compañeros. Tiene más ventajas y te cuidan .Yo pasaba por una etapa de mi vida mala y no di la talla pero me fui como amigo y con un gran cariño por las personas que trabajaron conmigo. Incluso con quien tuvo que despedirme. La pobre mujer se sintió muy mal. Pero desde aquí te digo. Hiciste lo que debías hacer y yo te estoy agradecido.

How would you greet an old couple? How would you greet businessmen? If you were to host a dinner party and could invite 4 people (dead or alive) who would you pick? Other than that pretty general questions: - Tell me about yourself - An example of when you worked under pressure - Describe yourself in 3 words - Why this restaurant - What makes a good manager etc
