Kitchen Associate in Kingswood, Bristol
Paid the bare minimum, very clique, moaned at for the smallest things, short-non breaks (even when pregnant). Changed rotas at every short notice causing me to be confused of when my shifts were.
Shift Manager - Branch Manager in London, Greater London
Originally fun but to corporate in the end
Was originally a fun place to work. Hard and long shifts but that was what was expected. Pay was good and targets achievable. As time went by the targets got harder and the freedom less. In the end was just stack it high and sell it cheap. No allowance was.made for cleaning lines or customer service. Doing weekly stocks including counting each sachet of condiments. Over time the care was on screw every penny you can. When I started it was on good, clean and safe pubs. Not like that when I left
Pub Manager in Streatham, Greater London
Tiring but enjoyable
Good atmosphere to work in but depends what location you work. Late nights can be a bit tough but shift lengths are no longer than 8-9 hours for the longer shifts. Good benefits scheme and share scheme, paid holiday and very flexible shift work.
Kitchen Associate in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire
Fast paced but boring. Hours aren't evenly distributed. Management are okay but some staff think they're better than others which is intimidating and doesn't make it a nice working environment. Don't get free lunches just a 10% discount which is nothing, no pros to the job.
Bartender/Waiter in Cardiff
I worked here for about 6 months with the promise of going full time after that but was refused as we went through 3 pub managers and god knows how many shift leaders in that time. Such a high turnover as no promises were kept, hours were long and you were lucky if you got your scheduled breaks. Most managers in the office doing nothing, leaving one shift leader to burn out while she basically handled everything. Some of the kitchen staff were horrible and so unprofessional, making crude, cringeworthy jokes at LGBTQ+ members of staff - and never pulled on their behaviour. The pub managers didn’t have a clue what they were doing, good staff were overworked and underpaid, lazy staff were left to coast through their shifts.
