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.
Long hours and stressful
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!

The balance between work and social life isn't great, rota's are done in advanced but are 90% likely to change meaning your plans don't always go as expected. There are lots of good days, that make you feel like you are making a difference but then there are those days that make you question whether or not you need the job. For some people it's a great job, it always helps when you have a good team of people around you, but tensions can run high like any job.

Not a great balance between work and social life.
Worked at The Hawth Park Inn Crawley for a few months and it was the worst few months of my life. Constantly got messed around with my hours and pay. They do actually owe me money still. Managers are disgusting horrible people that put you down and made more than one member of staff cry at work
Did not enjoy working with in the company hours are long and sometimes shifts get cancelled after an hour of working if it's not busy shift and winter is dead time not a lot of hours or shifts physical and mentally demanding job
Working as a team
Long hours little pay
- My typical day at work was serving guests and cleaning behind the bar. - I learned how pour drinks behind the bar. - I didn't get along with the managers - The hardest part of my job was the angry guests and sometimes when I had messed up, I would feel a bit embarrassed. - The most enjoyable part of my job was the conversations I would have with the guests.
Conversations with guests
When I was working with Harvester George Stephenson I enjoyed working with the customers and the work members. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was when the customers was satisfied with the service they received. A normal working day would be you have you're own section because I worked front of house and then you handled that section such as cleaning tables, serving customers, taking orders and handling money.
