Looked after us during lockdown, fun enough place to work but has its downside with head office set budgets and such. Can be stressful when it’s unexpected rushes

The only good thing was the team at the time carried about each other and recall helped each other to survive but managers were discussing how they treat people and disregarding health and safety as well about not actually caring about quality of food or the customs. If you challange that you will be pushed out and people will be asked to write fulse statements against you to remove you which myself had done and I have evidence
Pros
Some good people
Cons
All of the above

Our team is good at our location, however progression is really slow. Ive been informed that I would be put forwars for progression several times but I have not achived the position. I applied for a job role and was put on a pay grade lower than the position applied for. I was informed it would only be for 13 weeks, during my induction. All the while I was expected to complete tasks of a position above the role I applied for. I was wventually stepped up after 26 weeks, however I still completemost of the the AM role whilst being paid for Supervisor.
Pros
Teamwork
Cons
Long hours, poor work life balance, low pay, overworked

Job is okay for the most part if someone doesn't mind sitting in potwash and wasting a lot of food. Some parts are enjoyable but generally a lot of cleaning and nothing ends up looking clean by the end of the day either way. Manager has been putting off basic requirements such as ordering work shoes for months on end when new staff got them immediately. Minimum wage and work often work from open til close. It is either boring and nothing is happening or restaurant is filled to the brim with guests.
Pros
50% off on shift, 30% after, opportunity for growth
Cons
12 hour shifts, not enough staff to work shorter shifts, manager plays favourites, appliances often broken, not very student friendly

Exceptionally poor management, cant even write a rota correctly, no uniform provided yet they moan about the colour of my chef jacket, wages are constantly tampered with by management, they will clock you out before you've actually finished your shift, sometimes by several hours, expect to be put on emergency tax aswell because the manager doesn't know what he is doing, every staff member I spoke to is unhappy at the way the business operates.
Pros
Absolutely none
Cons
Deceitful managers, unorganised, extremely poor working conditions.

I worked with a lovely team of people that were always welcoming and we did things like secret Santa and it was great fun when they changed the menu as the staff got to do a taster day of the new food. However it was also very stressful at times you can have very rude customers and sometimes when the managers are stressed it makes the environment at work not as fun.
Pros
employee discount
Cons
Long hours and stressful

On the weekends typical day looked the same every weekend , from morning I checked all dates of food to make sure nothing expired including those from fridges. Team was co-operative and it made work a bit easier as everyone worked on the same level no one was left to work harder .
Pros
50% off everything during break

Would not recommend. Poorly managed site (Livingston) and terrible food - to the point where I felt bad recommending anything to a guest. When the food came back with complaints and I asked the manager what was going on I was told “oh yes, the food we use is of low quality” seriously???

A typical day at work for me would be making sure everywhere is clean and tidy and making sure tables are clean and ready for customers. Taking orders and serving food and drinks

I worked here when I was 18 now being 22, my branch was the literal pits, bottom of the barrel kind of pub with customers being the same. Management was insanely bad because he didn't care about his job or employee's - thankfully got sacked. Health and saftey in the whole building was atrocious, everything was filthy, old, colleagues were rotten. Its been reburbished now but been told the atomosphere of work hasn't changed. I quit after a month, and only worked there 2 days a week. Rip to anyone who goes to this branch, I wish you good luck!

Childish management who treat work like social club and let personal preference get in the way. Will refuse to pay past scheduled time but refuse to hurry guests to leave even if it means the staff staying an hour and not being paid for it.
