Fits for now
It's a straight forward job spec for someone who has been in catering for a while, sometimes the menu feels very generic with little thought going into a wider variety being made available over the menu cycle.Little scope for creativity but needs ability to work out work flows. I'm happy for now
Dolce do not care about their employees. The Area manager is aggressive and unprofessional let alone unapproachable! If you tell her you are not coping you simply get “well other sites are managing ok” no support whatsoever! Avoid like the plague if you can!

Worst company I’ve worked for
Worst company I’ve worked for... and I’ve worked in retail! No support from management. Never want to know about problems you are facing. Never enough time to complete daily tasks. Moan at overtime but this is needed just to complete daily tasks, if we didn’t EHO would not pass us. They say their staff are important but we never feel it.

Disgusting company with no morals
Where do I start!! Absolute shambles of a company. Started off full of promises and fantastic quality food and portion size with plenty of choice the fruit was kiwi,banana,cherries,pears,melon, grapes,pineapple, apple & oranges to begin with, the last 2 years it has been apple or orange that’s it! Drinks was milkshakes, milk, juice & water this soon changed to just water! Cheap food used & portion sizes same for reception & year 6. Management should be renamed Bullies, they make threats you will lose your job if you don’t abide by what they ask of you even if it’s against health & safety. They have no concern if you are short staffed tell you to get on with it, cut hours and pay whenever they feel like it and if your sick they say you can’t have time off and pressure you into returning if you are off. Grievance procedure! What is that??? HR brush everything under the carpet & ignore any complaints. Area manager is a bully & a drama Queen, bullies staff in all schools and makes idle threats to them all. Takes food from your kitchen without budgeting for it and tells you to cook meat from frozen if its brought in frozen but should be cooked from defrost! No management skills what so ever & talks her way out of any complaints. She is banned from the majority of her schools so how HR do not accept she is a problem is beyond me. Either that or they just turn a blind eye to this as well. My advice STEER clear of this appalling company for your own sanity and mental health, slave labour is a thing of the past but not with Dolce

Awful company to work for.
Cut hours as much as possible. End up working hours for nothing in order to finish your job. Awful company to work for. Would definately NOT recommend this company.
