Good place to learn

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
While at Dominique Ansel Bakery I learnt a lot about pastry. However that’s where it ends, the executive chef while I was there showed a lot of favouritism, he was unhelpful, he didn’t train staff he didn’t like, he spoke badly about all the other management staff to junior staff members.

Pros

Meals at work, staff discount

Cons

Long hours, no paid overtime

Nice experience

DAB is a sweet spot! Good product and nice people, the environment is easy going and dynamic! A bright kitchen with windows ❤️ Hours can be long but it s not always... not longer than any other high end shop in london anyway...

Terrible place to work

If you care about your mental sanity, don't work here.Long hours, no appreciation for your work, treated like a contemporary slave, no place to evolve in your career, poor management, disorganisation, lack of communication, negative environment, cheap salaries.

Pros

free lunches, decent equipment

Cons

long hours, poor management, unorganised, cheap salaries

Fun workplace

Doors open from 8 to 8 and days are pretty busy considering the nature of the products we offered customers. High quality food and clientele. Excellent team work and chefs brigade.

Pros

Staff members

Cons

Long hours

Was a good first time job

when I was working there it was a 6.30 am - 9 pm sometimes 10 pm job. I have learned a lot from this job and I appreciate what they had taught me in a year. At that time the management was not up to standard so i left the company. The hardest part was definitely the time as i didn't get anytime to myself to do sort out my stuff for college. The enjoyable part was the chefs that taught me how to become a good chef and how not to become a lazy chef. Also I enjoyed being able to become a chef de partie for about 6 months in the savoury kitchen as it taught me a lot about how to kitchen works such as if you do not have enough mise en place or if you did not order enough ingredients the kitchen would not function.

Pros

fun kitchen and good chefs to learn from

Cons

very long hours
