Okay but lots of work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good pay as first job but very demanding, working extra hours with little reward.Manager is alright but little communication and not much help. Most shifts left alone at kiosk.Early morning hours til late afternoon, be prepared for hard work.Really needs more kiosk staff working at the same time.


Free meals with break

Don’t work here

Since day one it’s been a shambles- training was due to be at one site the night before ended up at the other side of the country. They have values they don’t stick to.No clue on how to run a business or accounts. Unrealistic targetsLoan working Need I go on…

Easy job, bad management

Easy job if you have any experience in the hospitality sector. Management is out of touch though. Expect to be over worked and under appreciated. Free food is a bonus.

Wouldn’t recommend.

Training was given but its different when you actually start working. Also lots of online training I did in my own time, but other places I’ve worked they would incorporate it during my shift.For a kiosk team member it was too much stress, the workload was way too much for the hrs you were given, so i had to stay an hr/ 2 hrs behind every shift. Didn’t even get to take any breaks, most of my shifts i didn’t even take time to sit because there was so much to do. Don’t be fooled by the paid break benefit! It’s not worth it, plenty of other jobs out there, find a company/job that will respect you and your time. Worst part was the freezer, you had to get things out for defrost, walk in freezer was shared with tesco, so often freezer would be full of their stuff. Spent ages taking their trolleys out just to get to ours, just wasn’t pleasant! Manager was fine, no complaints there. Lone working so didn’t meet any co-workers. Overall wouldn’t recommend.

Just Don't!

When I first started the job there was no lone working...as time went on lone working became more of a normal thing.Work load is unrealistic and if you go for your break it will put you behind.The expect far too much from one person to complete during a shift and the stress for such a basic positions isn't worth it...I would understand some stress as a Supervisor or as a Manager but for a Kiosk Team Member it makes the job seem even more of a joke.You more or less go over your rotad time which can't be helped and your lucky if you get paid correctly at the end of the next week.I go over my rotad time by 4hrs and they refuse to pay it. Claiming it wasn't authorised however that's not stopped them paying it for months before hand.They complain about labour and expect hours to be cut but don't lower the production expectations or daily tasks that must be completed.If you don't get paid correctly or do anything additional for work at home unpaid it works out as you are working for less than minimum wage.I'm currently looking elsewhere for work at the time of writing this review because I value myself worth at this point just holding out until I find something else hopefully better.Not to mention clearly their business model isn't working due to them wanting to franchise of the kiosk at the time of this review which is all public information and promoted on other sites and social media.

The sites that I worked at had little to no management and lots of staffing issues. 4 out of 5 days a week you were on your own and the kiosk job has little to no customer interaction so it was very lonely. There was very little interaction between the staff and management as they only communicated through WhatsApp, and even then you would be lucky to receive a reply. A significant lack of communication between management and area management


free lunch, good pay


long hours working on your own.

Busy, nice people

Really busy place but the people were great. Pay could have been better and opportunities to work in the kitchen which was good experience. Would recommend!

Tiring and exhausting

Working long hours by myself. Impossible to finish task in timely manner. No benefits. No service charge. Rude customers. Flushed and rushed most of the time.

Not great to work for.

Lots of failed promises from day one, a line manager who seemed cool but turned out to be unprofessional, rude and made it clear he didn’t care about his staff. Kiosk Team Leader was excellent but I presume because he was also new. One of the worst ways I’ve been treated in a job, by far. I also needed to sit sometimes (declared my disability in interviews) and was fed the line “you’re just too lazy”.

Do not work here

This is by far the worst company I have ever worked for! It started with much promise, but went downhill so fast. The management at the company is terrible, they pretend to show care for employees but actually have zero understanding of their workers. To the point where almost everyone I worked with are miserable and want to leave.The communication from the company is awful and what they expect from you is completely unreasonable. They are constantly redefining the levels of productivity, making it harder and harder to complete your day in time, and then complaining when you go over your hours. You will very often be made to work by yourself mainly because they have such staffing issues. Meaning you will go from working long hours with no work life balance to them hiring new staff and having your hours cut. They also made changes to my contracted hours without my agreement and were completely disrespectful when I challenged it. This place is to be avoided at all costs!

bad management , bad benefit, no support

- pay never right- rota constantly changing without notice- management don't support you or provide help, left in the dark and to fend for yourself- manager mistreats and doesn't respect, favourite certain people- system for clocking in constantly failing which affects pay i.e they don't pay for the full day only partial

Lasted 2 shifts

I worked 2 shifts, being tall they would not accommodate my height for the work benches and I was hunched over for 8 hours a day. After 2 days and being told they would not adjust or provide additional equipment, ie a raised work surface I resigned


Nice ream


Not accommodating to everyone's needs

An awful, awful company to work for. Unrealistic physical workloads, unrealistic targets for making food that all gets binned and then are surprised when you seem unmotivated. Do NOT work here

Good work life balance but no security or respect for staff members well-being.

The job itself is extremely stressful as senior management are purely motivated by financial targets and are happy to set unrealistic targets for staff despite never having worked in the kiosk or actually attempted to complete the tasks they have set. The pay is poor considering the exceptionally high physical workload, very unlikely to receive a break as most shifts are alone and targets are such that you will be expected to work non stop for your entire shift to meet them.


Free lunches, work life balance


Poor senior management, unrealistic workload expectation, poor pay relative to expectation of workload.

No late nights

Some kiosk can open at 6am and close at 8pm depending on storeExpected to go above and beyond but don't get supportedOnly cares about targets and profits, not staffs wellbeing Doesn't advertise having to do lone shiftsSets unrealistic targets Not the best training


Free lunch (if you actually get a break). No late nights


Micro Managed, Lone shifts, unrealistic targets, No support, lack of training

Too busy for the lack of support

The hours are inconsistent, some part time staff working 8-16 hours and others working 30-40 weekly. The training is minimal. Customers complain to staff members and management provides zero support/response. And overall they just don't have enough staff to adequately complete the work load.

Fun Workplace

Fun place to work with amazing staff. Little benefits other than free food. Very little tips due to change in systems which very disheartening. Overall good place to work. Busy days can be stressful.
