Fast paced kitchens with demanding customers and busy days and evenings. It's a hard kitchen to work in but if commitment and passion is shown the company with be on the first line to help support and promote. Great place to express creativity and exchange ideas. The owners and head chefs always encourage every one in the company (waiters, kitchen porters and chefs, ...) the get hands on a new recipe idea.

It's FINE for hospitality.
Can't trust the management or your colleages, people culture is sneaky here. Matters aren't dealt with correctly, lots of bias amongst management and staff, SUPER COCKEY crowd of people is the culture need. Nobody is supportive and everyone gossips dangerously. Pay is decent for the job, but management don't know what they're doing so they make your job double as hard instead of easier.

Bad culture
Not well managed. Lots of staff turn over and not a lot invested in back of house making work more difficult. Staff moves from site to site often. Wages very poor for industry.

Productive And good companions
Always arrive on time and tried to always help my coworkers. I had help from my colleagues, they helped me improve and understand better what it was like to work in a restaurant
