Bartender/Waitress in Worcestershire
Team and workplace are lovely
Lovely friendly workforce and relaxed with uniform, you are allowed to express yourself which I think is amazing. Had good safety and PPE in place when the first covid lockdown hit however when the lockdown was lifted my job was taken from me due to me having to get another job during lockdown so I could afford to live. My manager was unforgiving and threw me to the dirt. I was upset as I enjoyed working there and wanted to return. Unfortunately it wasn't dealt with very professionally I was "let go" via WhatsApp. No P45 sent either, disappointing as I thought it was a professional and engaging company whilst we were on furlough.
General Manager in Cardiff, Cardiff
A culture of "Loungy-ness" - A complete lie
The company prides itself on being Loungey and being fun. It is a complete show. Ops managers are despicable and you're regularly stabbed in the back
General Manager in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire
One of the best jobs I’ve ever had
Loungers is a phenomenal company to work for, as a General Manager you have so much freedom to do things your way! Obviously you have to stick to some form of code of conduct but other than that it’s basically your site! The company has gone through an unprecedented time this year along with many others but I have never felt mor security in a job before! The operations manager is a cut above the rest and really makes sure that you feel supported! Obviously it’s a little stressful at times but what job isn’t! I couldn’t recommend this company enough especially those looking to progress
Head chef in Witham, Essex
A confused place to work
Very confusing place, upper management don’t know what each other are doing, one will tell you one thing and the other a completely different thing. Staff handbooks say one thing ops tell you completely different.
Sous Chef in Bristol, Bristol
Worst kitchen I've worked in to date
Hours were terrible, no real training given. Management didn't seem to care about staff at all just about how much money the kitchen was making. The overall culture in the kitchen was toxic and anti social due to how stressed everybody was.
