Family feel. Horrific management
Front of House Staff (Former Employee) – Exeter, Devon – 3 March 2017
I was part time, amazing family feel (even though I was kept out of the loop on EVERYTHING)
Wages were good for my age, but was worked to the bone, they will work you until you drop. There was no recognition of good work but they would nitpick everything you did just to find a bad point.
Constantly understaffed, even though they kept telling us we were very overstaffed.
Timetables never out on time, the bi**hiness between some supervisors got way out of hand, if you weren't besties with supervisors or management be prepared to have shiza rained on you
Never fired a single person, but instead made lots of people leave by giving them no hours, making them feel so unwelcome or by telling them that they were going to fire you in a few months so you need to start looking for a new job.
Area manager very quick to sweep things under the rug, after putting in my notice, refused to work my period due to my leaving circumstances. Made a formal complaint and was paid for my notice period, holiday and a couple extra days and got told "because everything is now sorted I hope there are no bad feelings towards the company and I trust you will take no further action" felt like I was being paid off.
Free food isn't free if you're on a short shift (4 hours).
Most of your time will include cleaning, being shouted at for not cleaning, not having enough time to do everything and hating working there.
Good for a temporary job to get you through a couple months, but definitely not a permanent position.
Literally everything else
