productive, fast-paced & friendly

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Food and sandwich preparation during the morning where the three sandwich options where decided between the head chef & I allowing innovative new ideas to be trialed. Friendly service during lunch hours welcoming customers, offering food and suggestions on what is on offer that day. Good teamwork and communication.

Sacked due to COVID

Feel I was sacked unfairly as had asked for time off during COVID lockdown for serious health condition, was not offered any support nor training to help me along.

Terrible company with poor management

Worked too hard with inadequate training. Owners and relations run company with little care for the staff and a culture of trying to outdo one another with 'new' ideas.

Fantastic company to work for

I have worked for wilson vale twice and only left in the middle for promotion. Leaving to work for another company drove home just how good wilson vale is to work for. There food ethics and managerial support is second to none and there drive to always try new styles and adapt new food cultures is inspiring. Im hoping that our paths cross again in the future.

Bad Management, Cost over quality

I worked with Wilson vale for 10 months. I was treated very badly by colleagues and i didn't feel appreciated at all. I loved my role within the company and if i wasn't for the atmosphere i would have wanted to stay. The food was very much about cost over quality and sometimes i was genuinely embarrassed to serve the customers. Management were terrible. They made you feel bullied into doing enough work for 2 maybe 3 people on your own. The only positives were i worked with a lovely lady in front of house and the customers were very friendly.

The motto it’s all about the chefs

Poor area mangers turn up don’t want to do any work sending picture to each other on WhatsApp. bully there managers expect you to work extra hours for free. Don’t look after the chefs very poor training courses which are not local and all after you have done a busy days work.

Nice place to work

It was a very safe and nice place to work with my coworkers. The company provide training and apprenticeship while I was working there and support me to improve in the customer service. I was always able to count on the management and support when it was needed. I found the hardest part of the job when I had to load the trolley with some cans and confectionery, and when we had to bring food out from the kitchen during the lunch service because it was very far from the service place. I loved to work with my colleges as a member of team and share our experiences.

Pros

we had free luch

Cons

no breakfast time
