Catering Staff in Scotland
I didn't last long here as the culture is very rude and inappropriate. No support for lower paid staff and no real support from HR. Any complaints get passed to area manager who passes it straight back to site to deal with. No progression chance as very much a family run site.
Catering Assistant - Part Time in East anglian
Worked in the east coast region for elior and never have i been talked down to more than i had here. I got shouted out for the most smallest things infront of the children and other staff members. Fuming rages because i had placed something a foot away from where it meant to be. Responses as if i was stupid when asking day to day questions. Manager was an awful person to work for, although okay to get along with (Sometimes) bare in mind i was treading on egg shells with this person most of the time. My first week there i never got shown what to do but was expected to know what i was doing straight away. (Because id worked in kitchens before, not a school before might i add) i got told i couldnt work on my own initiative, how could i when i hadnt been shown? I tried my damned hardest in that place and enjoyed it when things were good and on there terms but went sour when i had something to question or say. Noone should have to countdown from 10 and take deep breathes before walking into the workplace, i had mediation meetings with the manager and nothing had changed. I had avoided grievence proceedings to avoid further damage to my mental health. I had to get out of there. A good company if working with the right people and very rewarding seeing the kids grow from year to year. But as a company in the kitchen big no no from me.
Horrendous to work for.
Never worked for a company that wants and expects you to do 4 peoples jobs for one persons pay, when asked for more staff to do the required amount of work the response is always the budget will not cover it? When the lack of staff reflects on the service provided this is no way to run a business, never made sense to me why another member of staff could not be employed but they would pay the same amount as a wage in overtime that would pay that staff members wage? Site support ? Well its a bad job when you have to show the site support how to do their job that they admit to having gone on a training course to learn? All in all a shocking company to work for!
Catering Assistant in Durham
Stressful and over worked
Pay was wrong a lot!! Over worked barely got to choose when to take holidays and was often cheated out of holiday entitlement by manager. Complaints never took seriously. I loved the environment and people I served but team wasn’t very helpful very stressful very down grading and manager had a terrible approach to awful family circumstances kept ringing me to come back to work during a devastating time for myself.
