I had fun working there, it did get stressful on a busy night but you learned to control it and still keep the guests happy enough to come back again
Avoid this place at all costs. They charge you £30 a shift to work for them and take ALL your card tips. Your expected to serve 60 people in one section during a shift. it is awful.
1 small lunch per shift
I’ve been working with Turtle Bay almost for a year and can’t stress enough about how good it is working with this company. 2 months of training for a manager position and it was really great. My own site is one of the bests and getting even better. Good pay overall (could be better) but can’t complain. Lot’s of hours by option but always with loads of fun
Environment, food, teams
There were good and bad things about the job but by the time I left it was mostly bad. Teams felt very disjointed and we weren't really allowed to talk on shift so hard to make friends with each other and in the long run communicate properly. Long hours but did get unpaid breaks. Can be difficult place to work if managers don't like you. Life balance became hard because of doing up to 12 hour days so was exhausted constantly.
ok pay, customers are nice, good training
long hours, unpaid breaks, management issues

Loved the job working as a bartender at turtle Bay was fun. You have to be able to work fast under pressure. It's extremely fast pace long hours.short breaks. Tips are amazing.
Fun, busy, friendly, good food free, pay, tips
Busy, long hours, breaks short, staff area not great
Good company with a great bonus scheme. Progression it is quiet hard to move up, unless your ops manager likes you. Then you can be pay rised and promoted fairly often and quickly. Best position is deputy manager or below. GMs tends not to stick around for long and are disposed within six months.
Lots of fun, free meals, quartly staff party events.
Progression, long hours, no work-life-balsnce.
I did my own rotas. But was pretty much made to work 70 hours plus. I was told to sack and get rid of who ever I needed to , but when I did it was held against me. Managers asking you for numbers for drug dealers ‘ to help them through shifts’ I fell ill and asked for time off due to be burnt out. I was given holiday instead of sick pay then ‘let go’ as I was too ill. Horrid company to work for
I recommend turtle bay to work ..if your a chef who like working under pressure .you will learn a lot there how to work with specs and turtle recipes
This company exploits it's workers by making them feel guilty when they are asked to perform ridiculous feats at work. They lie during the interview process and also rush this process to secure a signature on their work contracts.
All aspects of the job.
Who is on a salary is taking all the hits for the labour cut. Managers have to do waiters and bartender shifts, plus all the rest of the KPI they are assigned. Doing mental hours for very poor money. 16-hour shifts, and nonexistent breaks.
Long shift, poor wages
Terrible pay, terrible management, they will use the fact that you have 0 hour contracts against you and you can go weeks without a job, especially if they decide to pay favourites. They will occasionally give you inhumane hours, I once did a 15 hour shift(you don't get paid for you don't get paid breaks either). Getting sick pay is an extremely unnecessarily difficult process. Many cases of harassment have been reported and nothing has been done. Avoid working here at all cost.
