Poor management
Disgraceful company with no respect from the top to the staff on the ground. HR department has forgotten what the core principles of HR actually are and are more about protecting senior management and money. Total disregard for the ground force. Shocking comments from a Regional Director whilst covid redundancies were happening. This guy was so insensitive to state, in front of staff losing their jobs, that he was gutted that he would now have to buy fuel from ASDA!!!

Awful
Worse than you can imagine, no sick pay, feel bullied for going home sick or calling in, feel bullied into coming in when they're short staffed, supervisor and management undermine and belittle you in front of both other staff and customers, as petty as the 16 year old they hire, physically pushed by a supervisor and constantly verbally assaulted by them even when manager is present, don't care about any staff unless you are one of the favourites, don't honour contracts, unfair and wrong pay payroll always wrong, wouldn't wish working here on on my worst enemy

Great opportunities for starting the catering ladder.
Great opportunities to enjoy the overall experience of catering in a busy environment.
Staff are very hard working & friendly & a joy to be around, helping where they can.

Institutional bullying
If your face didn’t fit or you wasn’t one of the manager’s favourites you was never likely to succeed.

I applied for a role in a sister site and a 3rd party stated I was never going to get the role.

DO NOT DO IT! (you have been warned)
The informal interview prior to starting the job you apply for is extremely deceptive, so do not be fooled.
Yes , they provide unflattering uniform and food but many other catering establishments provide the same without the BS.

Given details of job requirements, but started the job and overwhelmed with many other duties that you are not told about in the interview.

Some staff can be very unprofessional and petty, and becoming

Almost bearable (depends how much your willing to take)

Expect unauthentic friendships and tittle tattle.

Management have no respect for staff, but expect it in return, unjustifiably.

Never in my life have I worked for an organisation like this and never will I again.

This company is a regrettable establishment, that you would not get yourself involved in, if you want what's good for you.

Disgraceful management who cover eachothers mistakes and hide behind other reputable entities to carry out their appalling practices.

If you still decide to go ahead and work for this organisation.

you have been warned, not to do it to yourself!!!!!

The staff turnover I am sure is ridiculously high!

Management doesn’t care
Management is selfish and doesn’t really care much about their staff. Work environment is very stressful and not worth the hard work as you often suffer in silence.

Busy work environment
A busy work environment that had varied tasks to be completed on a daily basis. I learnt to adapt and do well under pressure for the various tasks. Work atmosphere was nice and bouncy

Nightmare
The most toxic environment I've ever experienced. Never paying correctly, manager is bullying staff, being disrespectful and blackmailing people. Everything was okay till management changed, "20years of experience manager" and still dont know how to speak with respect and on professional level. If you care about yourself and your mental health please stay away from this place.
Pros
No pros
Cons
Not paying correctly, zero support, very toxic environment, always doing job for 2-3 people without any help, being punished for taking day off, none is listening, bullying, inappropriate language

Happy atmosphere, good work, good management, on the job training on different jobs. Good company to work for.

Pros

Head Chef
Do not work for this company, don’t believe what they say as it is totally untrue
you are not treated well , As for the Head Chef he has no people skills at all and a racist ,Working as a team that is a big Joke ..... The other staff who worked there are okay , but talk behind your back

a lot , no communication at all . No prospects what so ever... I would rather be on jobseekers then to work with Baxter Storey.

Best job I have ever had
I absolutely loved working for BaxterStorey. This was my favourite job I have ever had. I was only doing a maternity cover sadly so I was only there for a year. If this wasn’t a maternity cover I would still be there now I love it!!
