Fun workplace

I met some nice people while working there, however, management wasn't the best and i had lots of issues related to the shifts as i was a college student.

Best Place to Work

I joined the business 5 weeks ago and have been given the best welcome possible - it has been joyful. Great locations to work and a team that are genuine and care about people, I couldn't ask for more.

Commis Pastry Chef in Bath, Somerset
on 22 December 2020
Did not work out for me whatsoever

Everything was fine working there at first, but through time, I came to realise it was not my ideal workplace. It made me feel worthless and depressed. I wasn't treated fairly and the hours were too long for me. I'm just glad I'm not there anymore, I really am. I was doing everything right task-wise, but even though this was the case, 'apparently' I was doing things wrong. It was like I was being picked on for no reason whatsoever. I would definitely never work as any form of chef again after my experience of working there, it was horrible. I would never recommend working here to anyone at all.
