I would highly recommend working for dolce, the management team are one of the best I’ve worked for and you can contact them anytime with any issue and it will be resolved straight away. Communication between staff and management is brilliant. I can’t fault this company. I have always been paid correctly and on time. Working hours are excellent especially if you have a family.
Pros
Free lunches

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!
Pros
Weekends off

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.

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
Pros
None
Cons
not enough hours or staff, treated appallingly

Worked around 7 years at school, 3 years under dolce. Loved my job but ONE error made by a colleague and I'm sacked as supervisor. 5 area managers in 3 years each with different views on the job. No one hardly ever turned up to see how we getting on. Poor support and left to get on with things. When something happens there super quick to get rid. Treated absolutely disgusting and left in a financial mess no thanks to this firm. Be very wary as dumped at drop of a hat at an instant. Appalling.
Pros
None
Cons
Treated you like rubbish

Tie you into a 1 year probationary period, want to leave they require training costs back. But won't think twice about letting you go without reason!
Pros

Cons
Don't care about their staff only management, min wage, other staff do sloppy job, not enough time to complete job

Really good family owned company to work for. Hard work gets rewarded with promotion and salary increase. Feel valued and like the fact the management can be approached right up to the managing director himself.

I have worked at Dolce for almost 2 years now and I thoroughly enjoy my job! The culture is great and you really feel like you make a difference. Management are very supportive and encouraging. The company has a great training sponsorship programme to help you achieve your career goals.

I've been working for this company for a year now. They work you hard and don't appreciate the work you do for them. They also don't like to pay you for overtime worked. They over look you for promotion and bring in people that have never done the job and straightaway put them in as a supervisor. I wouldnt recommend them acompany

Dolce is a great company the leading brand!! However they got very big too quick which has resulted in extremely poor area management this company has a leading example and the potential to be exceptional however better employee care and more attention to detail is paramount until they correct this company is extremely poor to work for. Understaffed poorly paid no gratitude the list is endless. High staff turn over there’s big changes to be made it’s getting there but no where near just yet. Such a shame really as enitile

Dolce will hire anybody, if you have no experience in a kitchen or have never worked a day in your life, Dolce will hire you, they are not picky! This reflects on the day to day runnings of the kitchen, your pushed to your limits and expected to go above and beyond. Management are a bunch of wet wipes that are also winging it but like to think they are something. If your really desperate and prepared to loose all self respect, this is the job for you
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything

I enjoyed my time working for DOLCE at Alecdon Primary School. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the children at dinner time. Management was good and the cook was excellent to work for.

Worked with dolce for 3 years until our school Tupe to another company last year, dolce are a fantastic company to work for I always found management down to earth and approachable in every way, very professional and know how to run a business and the computer system is amazing. I would not hesitate to work for them again in the future.
Pros
Good life/work balance and supportive
