Family feel and fab progression

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I've loved working at Dishoom. I've never worked anywhere in hospitality where they authentically care so much about your training and development. They really do their best to help you get where you want to go and offer you opportunities regularly to do that. Pay is industry leading, really can't complain about that. Feels like a big family, within a few weeks I felt like I had a huge new group of friends lots of which I'm going to be really good friends with for a long time. Free tasty food on shift and the cafes themselves always have a fab atmosphere. Customers really expect the experience to be amazing so it's a far more positive environment than other places I've worked. Hours can be long and it's very busy which can be draining but you're rewarded really well for the work and if you thrive on that dynamic fast pace you can't find anything better.

Pros

Free food, discounts, family feel, great progression, great pay

Cons

Long hours

Ruined by management.

Terribly managed place to work at from the awful GM to useless/unskilled department managers who got in those positions based on favouritism and friendships - not hard work. If your first language is not English don’t bother to work here because the whole management is. Many foreign people work here and are 100 times better but get nothing. Recruitment has been very bad the overall workplace is collapsing many great team members have left and are leaving and now only having people who have no experience. What a disaster of a place.. (It’s a shame because the company is great to work for)

Pros

Working alongside good team members.

Cons

Management, Management and Management.

A very bad experience

I worked here in Dishoom Manchester for almost 2 years and my experience has been very bad. The management is unbelievable - you really cannot believe the things they do and say in this place. People here work hard to make the company great but get let down by the managers. The bar was good nice bar colleagues and experience to learn skills but I wouldn't suggest this place to my worst enemy if I'm honest.

Pros

Good bar team and good company.

Cons

Very bad managers, alot of games and difficulties from them.

Active, friendly, fair

Dishoom Covent Garden is very friendly, you're always moving and it is a very hard role to be a food runner there as it is always busy, however, it is fair and you get what you put in, and the managers are always so understanding and supportive; you just have to communicate to those around you. I would recommend this role and company to anyone who can handle stressful days and love people and lots of diversity, that is Dishoom.

Good Workplace

I worked at Dishoom as an Apprenticeship Chef for 14 months, working in several sections. Overall i would say my experience was a positive one, the staff were hardworking, friendly and productive. I learned a lot about the industry and gained valuable knowledge through my roles and responsibilities .

Horrible staff and treated dirt by managment

Do not work here!! You get treated like dirt no self worth involved, hardly any one speaks English. Managment is terrible, no flexibility, no care for your working conditions.

Pros

Money

Cons

Everything

Productive, orgganized, busy

Dishoom is a great place where they care really about the staff. I learn a lot but there is not really much growth. With so many people to work with is great to stay in one position and remain. but not so much to move on to a next step.

Pros

Twice Staff Food

Cons

Too many people to work with

Very unhappy place to work

Overworked/unhappy staff Terrible work/life balance - most servers work ~60 hours a week Managers bully staff they don't like A lot of drug/alcohol dependency on shift. Unless your aim is to make a lot of money fast, avoid at all costs.

Pros

good pay

Cons

long and hard work

Small company where you can learn a lot and in a nice atmosphera

Nice company to work for, listen and follow the elder workers there because they are really kind and willing to teach and help you. One of the most important thing there is to be able to work under pressure and keep calm in busiest time.

Pros

Free meals on shift(delicious)

Cons

Quite busy in the evenings
