Barista (Current Employee) – Blackpool, Lancashire – 18 January 2018
Constantly being called in to work to cover shifts on day off No bonuses, very little staff benefits 20 minute break only even if you work 9 hours and anything upto 14 hours. Job advancement is quick but training is appalling. Low pay.
Starbucks supervisor (Former Employee) – Monmouth – 7 February 2018
I worked in the Starbucks, monthmouth for a very long time and I had 6 different managers there and my last one ended up getting rid of me. Loyalty means nothing, the hours are awful, the are ALWAYS short staffed and you will often need to cover shifts or feel guilty if you don’t. Terrible training as they allow supervisors to run shift without the basic barista training- I would say definitely avoid- especially Monmouth services
Sandwich Artist/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Stockport, Greater Manchester – 6 February 2018
Euro garages is easily the worst company i have worked for, Management has no clue what they are doing. hours are long. you don’t get breaks. they watch you and listen to you through cameras and microphones. treated like a slave with no benefits. we are open 364 days of the year and pay is the same. The occasional nice customers is the only positive.
poor management, long hours, no breaks, average pay and spied on 24/7
Min wage but expect you to give them the earth. Minimal staff on shift no matter how busy. Speakers and cameras in the stores watching and listening to you. No recognition Work all the hours under the sun and they will still get rid of you if your face suddenly doesn’t fit. Won’t fix anything when things break. 0 hour contract “Bonus scheme” in place but dosent get explained to you. Ask for sales ideas, send email after email with the ideas and nothing happens to support the store from trying to get sales higher.
* My second day at work when i was still picking up things slowly. it was so busy, had a queue of customers in front of me when i was on Till. also Regular customers complaining about missing items on shelf.
* I learned that how to manage a typical day like this by being very polite to customers and apologising for the wait to be served and for the missing items. and from that day all those customers started calling me by my Name.
* Hardest part of the job is when you dealing with Drunk and very Rude Customers.
* Enjoyable part of my job is that i enjoyed talking to people.
There for 18 months and just got treated like dirt. Manager was shocking and didn’t care about staff same goes for area manager, if it wasn’t to do with the store doing well they didn’t want to know. Never work for Euros again!
Greggs Team Member (Former Employee) – Oxfordshire – 22 December 2017
After being told I would be given a 40 hour contract, I was placed on a 16 hour contract instead, the manager favortises one member of staff who he is friends with. Play is terrible for what you have to deal with Maneger and supervisors do not support staff in any way whatsoever No job security as was told if I didn't do overtime hours when asked then they would find someone who would Not given full training and always told that I will receive certain training and it never happens.
Free hot drinks at work
Long hours, unsupportive staff, terrible wages, no job security
General Bakery Assistant (Former Employee) – Stevenage, Hertfordshire – 19 December 2017
Worked for this company for 3 months and never again. My hours were dropped without warning was treated really bad by the boss and the area manager was useless. Got sacked for no reason after a review and was told I was never on time for work never worked well in a team when I only worked with the manager and a supervisor never the other team members and my work was not up to standard even though I cleaned the place washed up and loads while the managerest didn't do anything.
great job volunteered here for 2 years had fun decent pay amazing everything is good, typical day is working 9-5 and working on various projects on which i learnt a lot. from starbucks to subway to esso. even client meetings.
Cashier/Sales Assistant (Current Employee) – Sunderland, Tyne and Wear – 2 December 2017
Euro garages seriously need to look in to the fake promises theyre offering. Staff in the fuel stations get no benefits, no discounts in store, no training. The contracts are zero hour and minimum wage. They have an open door lone working policy meaning on night shift you have to let everybody into the shop and sign a disclaimer to say youll agree. Obviously working night shift alone in a garage with the door open causes so many problems for the staff and police are called pretty much nightly. They have no regard for the safety of staff who are the ones that are actually running the place.
Terrible job with highh expectations and poor treatment from management and customers
Bakery Assistant (Former Employee) – Reading – 15 November 2017
This is BY FAR the worst job I've ever had in my life and that is saying something, lets put it this way: Being a cleaner again is starting to look high class... When I used to work there, the job was horrible, work hours were confusing and ridiculous, manager seemed to do nothing better except literally yell at me for standing around even though I was at the cash register waiting for customers to arrive. Customers are always rude, like the lack of food or cold food is our fault. Area manager is always yelling at us employee's.
Its a job?... If you can call it that I guess...
Poor pay, treated like garbage by management, terrible and confusing work times etc
Cashier (Former Employee) – Hampshire – 11 November 2017
They do not care about you or your safety just money . Avoid them at all costs . You can end up being left on your own in a busy garage if someone goes sick Can't have a break or go to the toilet . Can end up working a 16 hour shift if someone goes sick . Very little training , No support from Manager or Area Manager .
Non except plenty of hours because no-one wants to work there !
