Good progression and rewarding if customer service is your forte
Waitress/Manger on Duty (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 6 November 2017
The job is customer service orientated. There are chances for progression if you work hard and a chance for extra income. When progressing to management, there is a lot to learn and very good experience. It improves your ability to be confident and improve skills with service. It is a physically tiring job and the hours can be unsociable but the customers make it all worthwhile.
Free meals, chances to win prizes with incentives, extra income
Duty manager (Former Employee) – Leeds – 1 November 2017
I was very lucky to work with a great team of people so all the usual challenges of running a busy restaurant were shared. had great support from my manager and across the local area. had I not left the area I would probably still be there.
A decent place to work if you can deal with the tradeoffs
Manager on Duty (Current Employee) – Essex – 23 October 2017
Not an awful place to work, but youll have no social life and if your partner works regular hours it may cause a problem. Ive met some great people working here but management overall has been poor. i must note that area management is very good, its just restaurant management that is so poor.
Waitress (Former Employee) – Bromley, Greater London – 4 October 2017
Despite many benefits being taken away in last few months salary is still extremely good, especially for students or part time work. Transferring is easy unless management are unwilling to cooperate, so staff experience will depend on location, and fellow workers.
A typical day at employment for pizza express consists of serving food to friendly customers that often have children. I have learned valuable life skills such as how to deal with friendly customers and difficult customers. I have also learned to work as a team and communicate.
pizza maker (Former Employee) – London – 18 September 2017
first job is always difficult, building a carrier require a lot of passion and dedication. Very hard to learn and a bit stressful but after all good place to work. I definitely would work again Because I love pizza and the company:)
Great tips, good team work, nice working environment
WAITRESS (Former Employee) – Bath – 15 September 2017
If you work well and hard you will do very well here. Great tips. Literally. Financially and it is an enjoyable way of life if you like hospitality and don't mind unsociable hours. Tiring as running around on feet all day. Free lunch. Fairly good management from my experience.
Due to not sharing tips there is a tendency for the team not to work as hard for each other as they are primarily focussed on there own section.
Pizza Express is very hands on as a role from the Restaurant Manager down. The days are fluid, How busy you are and areas that needs support can change in an instant. Be prepared to get stuck in and reap the rewards long term. Plenty to learn and opportunities tp progress.
Just don’t give you the respect that you deserve as you woke very late and hard.
Cleaner (Former Employee) – Uckfield – 11 September 2017
I feel like you have to be used to late nights and long hours to work somewhere like this as it can be very tiring and boring. The manger doesn’t give you enough respect as you are the heart of the business because without you there would be no plates for the dishes to go on that would be clean.
