Area managers and other "supporting" roles such as auditor etc are never available to help, you are expected to work above and beyond your contract all the time, pay is bad and work life balance doesn't exist
Pros
None
Cons

Poor company to work for, expect extra work for no extra pay. Bosses don’t help with developing you as a person. Work all holidays and Christmas with no extra pay, don’t pay out bonuses
Pros
Not many
Cons
Long hours, no incentives, Christmas Day expected to work

Salaried pay at a minimum of 48 hours usually towards 60 hours a week for nothing extra. Constantly increasing targets making it impossible to achieve and very demotivating.

Worked at The Young Vanish for a while and was glad to get out of there as soon as I could. Both kitchen and Assistant manager were totally incompetent, both were too busy being friends with their favourite members of staff. It's a very clicky environment to work in. If your face doesn't fit then you're left to do everything. Favoured members of staff were allowed to pretty much do as they please, so you were left to pick up the slack. Most members of staff were either friends or related and everyone loved to slag eachother off and gossip. The building gets in that much of a mess that you work through breaks to catch up. Avoid!!!
Pros
Nothing
Cons
The staff

Mitchell’s and butlers is a great place to work, they have different brands you can work for. They offer great rates of pay and plenty of opportunities to move up to management if you wish/ are capable. They also give you a 33% discount code to use at the other Mitchell’s and butler sites every day but Christmas Day.
Pros
33% staff discount
Cons
Unsociable hours

I have worked for Mitchell and butlers for almost three years. I have made no advancements in my career after showing an interest in the apprenticeships. It is good for a part time job but staying there for a long period of time will drive you insane. Personally my manager has treated me with nothing but respect but i feel that the company could appreciate their staff more. The job has given me a great amount of confidence. however, i will not be returning to work for them soon.
Pros
keep tips
Cons
underappreciated
