Dreadfull company

Long hours, no job security, bullying culture. Nothing good to say about this company. They appreciate no one. Promise the earth but fail to deliver on all counts. If you want a long term job then look elsewhere

Good interaction around the food with the school teachers & childrens

Leading a kitchen team of 2 catering assistants, my task was to boost the quality of the food and service to keep the contract with our clients. Along usual cooking and service, I was responsible for: office work, online food ordering, weekly stock takes, incomes, cash up, weekly banking & bagging, closing week, week and period flash report, staff rota.. We received a very good appraisal from the school governors who were very impressed of the quality of food and service provided to the school. Therefore, a new contract was signed well in advance with our clients. Reason of leaving: only 39 weeks contract, the income was not viable for a long term. I had 2 choice: becoming relief Chef manager for Pabulum LTD or Head Chef for Blue Apple Contract Catering LTD.

Very difficult to say anything positive .

Sadly lacking in communication, between management and staff, at every level. The pressure and stress of the job, is definitely not reflected in the salary.

Pros

Long holidays .

Cons

Very low wages.
