A wonderful place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
This one one the highlights on my career. The training is second to none. The organise weekly training for wine, cocktails and other drinks as well as special visits from reps to talk about product knowledge with tasters. The review is for the London Hawksmoor’s, I spent time in the Edinburgh branch and it is a different site in almost every way. It’s quiet, lack of training, no real support from management and missing that hawksmoor passion and drive. What a shame.

Pros

Training, true hospitality passion

Cons

Long hours, physically demanding job, you need to take it seriously in terms of product information, ingredients and where they are from and allergies as well as dealing with complaints.

Not the place to work for

The place is full of stressed people . If you've had experience as a good runner it's no different here.the head trainers like to put you in straight away with no directions and like to moan at you if you get it wrong even on your first day. NOT THE COMPANY TO WORK FOR AT ALL.

Extremely busy kitchen. Must be prepared to work very hard. I learned much about cooking on a large scale (400 covers) on saturday evenings. Worked with very high quality products.

Fun workplace, very busy

The workplace at Hawksmoor contained some lovely characters and great people but the management culture was ran on the premise of "if it's a problem, pretend that it does not exist".

Flexible and Fun

Amazing people, great flexibility and integrity. This is an amazing place to work, as they treat their employees with fairness and dignity. It is an incredibly busy organisation that puts their costumers in a pedestal (with no exception) and that means that we must have a proactive approach to their business as well as learn how to bend forward and backwards to make everything possible happen. Also, what makes this place special is the fact that they offer their employees great flexibility and support when it comes down to other possible career paths and qualifications, even if these are different industry areas.

Strong culture, weak business

Great for staff's personal development but the company lacks the same direction. Working hours were good, training was excellent but top tier leadership seem to be at the will of investors.

They recognize the skills you have and they are also willing to support your growth and help you build up your career if you are excited about doing so.

Pros

Possibility of promotion, company benefits

Ambiente de lavoro relajado y profesional al mismo tiempo

organización del plan de trabajo en una reunión con sus colegas. Conocer el menu , los nuevos platos. Trabajar de una manera relajada con los directores y pasar el break juntos también.

Pros

descanso para tomar cafe

Cons

lejos de casa
