Not bad paid, but very stressful
The kitchen can be very stressful most of the time. But, it depends on how you take it and manage your stress. After a while, you can get used to it. The hardest part of the job for me was to start at 5 am in the morning. However, it's easy to progress and get promotions.

No work life balance
Paid weekly is a good, free food, downside is shifts are early, late, or mid only favourite staff get the consistant shifts and get a better life balance,the rest of us have to put up with it no matter what, even if you moan about it nothing changes. Most of the staff are lovely and helpful it's a shame the few that are favourite can't see what is happening.Apart from that if you can not let effect you apply to work, you make great friends and you can move to a different unit free food is a plus you also get to try new products for free which is good, it's so you can tell the customer if they ask

Fast paced but rewarding work
Decent pay and benefits package, sometimes can get quite stressful. Management is pretty good, and quite flexible with shifts. Free meals and coffee is quite nice.
