Horrible managers and overworked
If I could give 0 stars for management I would!Its the same type of rude,unfair,racist managers everywhere.They only look out for their own people.Job is very tiring,some of the customers can be extremely rude.

Fun, free food but overall stressful
Demanding but fun job with lots of training! Made friends for life through this job. Only issue was the management, at the beginning they were great but changed management who just had motives and favouritism from the start. They never supported my mental health issue and terminated my contract after I had a mental health breakdown due to personal issues that were affected by working here.
Line Chef in Leeds
on 8 September 2022
learnt new skills and asian cuisine
overall a nice place to work but there were a few bad people. I learnt how to work in a fast paced environment and how to use equipment like teppans, woks and deep fryers
Line Chef in Manchester
on 6 September 2022
Extremely busy and underpaid
Pros: Some colleagues are nice and helpful. Some managers are helpful and willing to teach.It's chill when it's not lunch or dinner hours. You can learn everything really quick - if you want to. Cons: Underpaid - especially kitchen staffLunch and dinner hours are crazy. Unreasonably number of chefs (4-6) facing ~100 guests. You have to send at least 40-45 dishes in 60 minutes. Shifts are not scheduled well.
