Really surprised a business like this has survived the pandemic so far. The senior managers are pretty much useless and lazy and don't even know our names. My manager is good, but makes excuses when most of the team havent had contracts for over a year. No one really trusts this company and we all work alot harder than necessary. They have lost peoples personal details, paid people furlough when they shouldn't of and the head office team are pretty much lazy. I can see why people leave this business.
Staff get on well most times with each other other.
Head office, no free food, no discount lots of bosses
Primark Edinburgh Site-BY FAR, THE BEST job I have ever had, from start to finish I have had a very pleasant experience, unfortunately due to Covid, our site was closed, that is the only reason I am no longer working for the company, but the way the situation was handled was fantastic, Management in constant touch to update us of any new information, grants etc. The actual work environment is just wonderful, Management are understanding, helpful, hard working, but still leave room for some banter, an easy-going, relaxed place to work and I am gutted to no longer work there. Pay is also good for the job you carry out - or I think so. You also gain some hospitality related qualifications which are completed during working hours. Flexible to suit employees commitments such as children or education.
Free lunch, staff discount, and free hot drinks during shift (how it was at my branch, unsure of others)
Primark site sometimes got pretty quiet
Until being made redundant due to COVID I can honestly say it was the best job I have worked at for many years. Staff and management were laid back, and always open to either talk to about problems or suggestions. Team colleagues felt more like family, cliche but true. Unfortunately, as mentioned, covid as ripped out a very well balanced team. Can't speak highly enough
Work life. Overtime pay. Good team to work with. Nice working environment
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Gather & Gather?
Management and higher ups don’t really see what it’s like at the bottom do they...no real reward for working in this kind of company and your efforts count for nothing. It changes all the time and I can’t say it’s for the better unfortunately. Nothing good or special here. It’s a job with a decent salary at the bottom and good hours. That’s it.
Poor communication. Non helpful staff. No acknowledgement for your consistent efforts
The manager allowed a sous.chef who he went out with outside of work to do what she liked.She sat with her filthy kitchen boots cross legged on the side were food gets prepared and he never said a word. But would constantly be down my throat for working my hardest.
Easy work, manage yourself
Very clicky, manager looks after his friends and expects everybody else to pick uo the load
I worked with Gather&Gather at their Sky location on and the whole it was a good experience. My team mates were lovely and we all got along. Downside was some days when absolutely swamped and not enough people to go around. This was however balanced with very quiet days as well.
out of the way location
I worked for them for 2 and half years was an annoying job as the manager would watch you struggle when short staffed and was a gossip. He was not afraid of confronting the female staff but the men no chance. Head office were very hard to communicate with
This place is a joke you don't get full training as the managers don't even know the job them self. Dont get full uniform no safety shoes given rips shirt managers don't have time for you and there food makes you sick and when I raise this issue they got funny with me and started saying you stated this allegation about are good . What about the unfair treatment in the workplace
There so no free lunch
