Team Member in England

Overall goodGood and nice environment but have a lot of trouble with pay, management are very reluctant to add any extra hours that you work. Also remove hours you have worked without notice and then you have to fight to get the money. Very poor that the management change the hours after you have worked them. Apart from that, nice staff and nice customers and a good atmosphere

Don't work hereUnsociable, long hours, understaffed and under-trained. Never in a work place have I seen a manager leave before the K.P. You’re not cooking you’re refrying and reheating. Look for something other than Yo! Sushi as there is no substance to work here, no pride is taken.

Little work life balanceUnder new management and they are very clueless. Constantly on laptops ignoring staff that need help. You will have literally one staff member on the floor to accommodate customers, drinks and the front door seating/bookings. Also 2, maybe 3 if lucky working in the kitchen. Customers often complain about the lack of service or time waiting (maybe if we could get some help). The company have gotten extremely greedy and only care about profit and cutting labor, hence working alone often. Even senior staff who have worked for a long time often get ignored or told they are wrong when it comes to simple things like colouring of chopping boards and knives. The restaurant has become an absolute mess resulting in losing one star on the hygiene rating. Brexit has made it extremely difficult to get any of our stock so often upset customers because their favourites aren't available. Also managers are totally fine with skipping ingredients in certain dishes because they would rather sell it than not make the money even though it's not correct. The standards have dropped severely causing staff who loved working here to leave. This was once my dream job and now I can't sleep at night being full of dread for what the next shift holds.

The job itself is okay, but the hours are ridiculousCoworkers were lovely, and some of the benefits are nice. The work is pretty easy. Worked in the kitchen and FOH.However staffing is a constant revolving door, always understaffed, and it's not hard to see why. Rota is given very last minute, sometimes not confirmed until it's already in effect. A lot of very questionable stuff going on here, way too many amount of hours per week without prior agreement for example, sometimes less than 11 hours respite between some shifts too. Shifts are almost always long (9-12 hours usually). Not worth the money/ benefits for the trouble, they'll work you into the ground if you let them.

Busy and unique experience as a serverThey don’t do interviews instead opt for (unpaid) 2 hour trial shift which is horrible in my sense. There were no professional questions (no manager on duty for severs) a staff server asked me to work alongside the staff servers. So I tried my best and did so much non stop work alongside 2 only servers and hoped to get at least a little response back from manager but got no response back. I love the brand but this was just an awful experience. What I learned is that they had 15 more people coming for the trial shifts in the span of next few days. So basically get trail workers( who won’t get job) so you don’t have to pay for real workers….. ridiculous
