Restaurant Assistant in Livingston, West Lothian
on 2 May 2022
great staff with bad pay
lovely people with a fast pace environment, very repetitive tasks with little to no change from day to day. can get boring and/or frustrating very easily
Restaurant Assistant in Shepton Mallet, Somerset
on 16 May 2022
Worst job
Worked here for 8 years with no promotion or pay rise in that time. Short staffed so leads to taking staff of any standard on resulting in high staff turn over. The good workers are not looked after. You’re expected to do many different jobs that would require 2/3 people normally. Competitive rates means minimum wage you might get a pay rise of an extra 50p an hour after being there for years. Would No recommend working here very high stress

About the business not the staff
Job was different to advertised and hours were more than advertised which were unachievable as a student. Other staff always complaining made me feel like insecure at work
Seasonal Sales Assistant in West Midlands
on 28 April 2022
Fast paced but family feel
For school leavers you will learn the foundations of any job and the dos and donts of a work environment. Can be very fast paced but if handled in the right way you will enjoy every minute.

Graet place to work
Great place to work, supportive management and good career prospects. Good work life balance. I have worked for the company for around seven years up to management level. I have learned a lot.
