General Assistant (Former Employee) – Scotland – 13 January 2019
I tupe to elior from a supermarket chain, were the mangers are more professional than elior uk unsatisfactory mangmant at all levels, unsatisfactroy communication and support for tupe employees. Unsatisfactroy unaform 1 pole shirt two aprons for a five day working week, no logo on pole shirt to let the wider public know tha you work for elior uk.
Elior uk is quick to sort out problem out that they have with inployee,but when it come to sorting out employee problem their are to slow to sort out, like onece a mouth to get on my view to get my payslip.

Chef (Former Employee) – Taunton, Somerset – 27 December 2018
When I worked at Elior, i enjoyed it very much but then it got rediculous, I wasn’t paid for 3 months, as soon as I was finally paid they fired me, and my boss said I wouldn’t fire you If I could decide, which he lied to me, when I worked nights, the people before me left a mess for me to clean up, which took about an hour to clean I only had a short time still people was coming in to eat, no help what so ever with anything, they put me straight in the deep end as soon as I started there’s so much more I could say.

Catering Assistant - Part Time (Former Employee) – West Midlands – 8 November 2018
- no training, left to just get in with things. They moved me to another premises “ so my hours didn’t have to be cut” 2 weeks later they cut my hours anyway. Faulty equipment and even though you report it it never gets fixed. Not supplied with a uniform and then got a disciplinary for not wearing my uniform (figure that one out) Had an ops manager turn up 1 day to ask for more voluntary hours to be cut but then I was told that if I didn’t agree to doing it voluntarily they would do it anyway and wanted my answer there and then. Not given chance to discuss with my family if we could afford my hours to be cut again.
Lone working, no training, dirty equipment, faulty equipment, management are a joke
Manager (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 17 October 2018
I worked as a manager for Elior for a year and it was one of the worst years of my life. I was bullied and harassed by the client and they did nothing, finally removing me from the post because the client said they wouldn't have me there. No support till it was too late. Had to beg for essential training including food hygiene and H&S. This company are about £££. That's it. They will work you till you break and have nothing left to give anyone. Avoid them.
Kitchen Assistant (Current Employee) – Branston – 11 October 2018
It's easy to pick up, you just mainly do food preparation and washing up. It's hard on your back bent over the sinks and on your feet, standing up all day. There's nothing really hard about the job. Depending on what shift you do, tea time shifts, you cook more and wash up on your own, morning shifts, you're with the chef and other kitchen assistant all day until you finish. 8am-4:30pm your typical day is sandwich making, textured food making, washing up and cleaning. 10am-7pm your typical day is washing up, clearing the dining room, more washing up, bit of food preparation (chopping vegetables, grating cheese etc) cleaning and then the final washing up and cleaning, once tea has been served to residents, on your own.
Long hours, on your feet all day, in the sink 90% of the time
Night crew (Former Employee) – Wirral, Merseyside – 8 October 2018
I worked for elior at Tesco Wirral. I loved my job but was fighting a losing battle with staff and manager. I used to go in and be expected to heat up food that had been already heated up and sat out for the whole shift before me. Tesco managers used to tell me to go and do a shop and cook fresh food. Every night I used to scrub the place including all the mugs as they where disgusting. Customers where constantly complaining about the manager and day staff. In the end it wore me down and I got out. They are not a good company to work for and expect you to work long hours on your own. I done a 12hr shift with no break as I was on my own.
Bad management, long hours, health and safety issues
Catering Assistant - Full Time (Former Employee) – London Borough of Islington, Greater London – 27 September 2018
Found the company the best out of all the catering companies I've worked for as they are supportive, its hard for the company as the clients can make it difficult and limited spend for Elior to work with. know its also made great if you have a great manager like I did. Catering can be hard work as poor hours but this is the demands of the business and clients needs, people forget that when they complain about the business.
I've learnt so much from the company, only left as I relocated and needed to job in a different part of the country and at the time Elior were not recruiting in the area.
Culture: if you are good at your job, reliable you can go far within the business, there is too many lazy people in the catering business and expect alot of money and not work for it... all the negative comments tend to be from those lazy bunch.
I've had excellent training and support and thank Elior for everything and hope one day to return.
Free lunches, training and support
early starts due to demands of the clients business needs
Administrator (Former Employee) – Harwell – 24 September 2018
A typical day included answering e mails and taking telephone enquiries regarding hospitality requirements, also working on till at lunchtime. Liasing with chef regarding day's menu and typing up and printing out of these. This was a busy environment with lots of last minute changes Overall management was good but sometimes frantic. I learned to operate very quickly within my role to prioritise my duties The workplace had a good culture towards customers but not always staff. The hardest part was to sometimes manage time as there never seemed to be enough. The most enjoyable part was meeting customers and engaging with them.
Close to home and free fresh food
Sometimes not enough hours to complete my duties on the day
If you'd like a contract, and correct wages, this is NOT for you
Kitchen Assistant (Current Employee) – East Anglia – 21 September 2018
I'm just a kitchen assistant, but it definitely doesn't feel that way, constant calls on days off, starting from 7am. The responsibilities for minimum wage, due to managers pushing their work load onto you, is just madness. The budget given doesn't in any way cover the cost of food, if you wish to use half decent ingredients. Wages are never paid correctly, but followed up with a poor excuse, if your able to contact the correct person eventually. And no contract, for some reason, 8 months in, and plenty of asking. Yet they will gladly state I'll only get paid 20 hours for a weeks holiday as per contract, although working 40 hours a week since starting. I was employed to do 20 hours a week, but almost straight away was offered the 40, never expected them to mug employees off that way.
