Great - until it wasn't.

Poor management, which their head office back instead of their other employees, great coworkers though. Very much 'we're a family!' vibes, but don't let that fool you.I could write an essay about how they've shafted so many of us (pre-covid and post-), but I'll spare you.

Pros

Staff food - yum

Cons

Definitely wouldn't recommend

The salary advertised is a lie (as it assumes everyone will receive service charge). Worked there for a month but was not given an employee number so I was unable to earn that extra 12% of each order, meaning other people earned money from me. The managers were extremely unprofessional (coming in hungover and snapping at you) as I heard them talking about firing employees for being "annoying" YOUR JOB IS NOT SECURE! And don't even get me started with how unpredictable the hours are. You could be booked to work from 10 until 10, but forced to take a 2+ hour break so the restaurant does not lose money, meaning you will have to wait at the restaurant as you don't have time to go home but will NOT be getting paid. Staff meals are also a scam. You are only able to order anything off on the menu (apart from starters) for your first 2 weeks before you're literally only allowed the cheapest items with restricted ingredients. You can also only have one meal, even if your shift was not cancelled via a whatsapp text or 12+ more hours.

Pros

Some free food/ no uniform

Cons

Everything else

Love the company and it's values

I joined Pho 6 months ago and I genuinely cannot rate it enough as a company. I have been given a lot of support when needed in my role but also the autonomy to grow my role and make decisions. They really embrace their employees personalities and the service is far from robotic as it is in most branded restaurants. Great family feel and strong values in place!

Pros

Free meals, Family vibe, lots of support given, Staff Parties!

Cons

honestly none!

Fantastic company to work for

A fantastic company with a great culture. Insightful management who encourage personal development. I was hired to open the Cambridge Branch and learned a great deal about the Pho food and culture very quickly. Be open and observant, and know how to work as part of a larger team. The Vibe and company ethos are excellent.

Pros

Fantastic work outings and celebrations

Cons

Weekend Hours

Cliques, favouritism, bullying

Do not work for this company. The teams are made up of cliques. If they don’t like you they will push you out. No support from management. Long hours which means no life outside of work.

Pros

1 free meal

Cons

Long hours, low wages

Productive and live environment

A typical day at Pho is very productive and live. Employees are always trying their best in what they do and everybody is always happy and gets along. Working at Pho has taught me a lot, especially customer service skills and how to deal with certain situations, At Pho i do not think there is a hard and easy part of the job, you just do your role and most of the time i do personally feel everybody enjoys their role.

Pros

One meal a day is free, Staff are lovely to work with, Management are professional

Cons

Long hours, Restaurant closes late.
