Really fun place to work
Restaurant Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Nottingham2 October 2019
Really enjoyed my time here, difficult at times but worth it if you enjoy working in a fast environment. Hours can be unsociable but you end up socialising with those you work with so doesn't really matter

The worst place I have ever worked
Waitress (Former Employee) –  Nottingham7 May 2016
The management here is apalling.
My first few shifts were really enjoyable, perhaps due to the lovely colleague who was training me. However, once my short training was over I was left alone and had to figure it out for myself, and this can be tricky when there's a full restaurant on a Saturday night. The high up staff were so rude and unwelcoming, was very hard to build a rapport with them.
Also, they would change your shifts around and wouldn't inform you they had done so. Sometimes I would turn up to my shift and they would tell me I'm not working and asked me to come in tomorrow instead. To make it worse I had a 16 hour contract and they sometimes gave me 1, 6 hour shift a week..
On my final shift before I quit, I was covering a colleagues shift 10-10 on bank holiday Monday, it got to 5pm and I hadn't yet had a break, so I asked for one. Well, I got shouted at and told to wait. So I did, it then got to 8pm and I was feeling shaky and lightheaded so I finally got my manager to give me a break (after 10 straight hours of running around). As there was no space in the restaurant I had to eat my meal on the staff cloakroom floor. 5 minutes after I sat down my manager demanded that I had to leave my break and work through it. So I did, it got to 10pm and was told I had to stay. I didn't get out of the restaurant until just after 12pm. And to top it off, a table walked out and I had to pay £90.

The amount of stess is unreal, you're expected to bend over backwards and still have a smile on your face.
Pros
Tips and a free meals
Cons
Everything else

you can't tell how the day is going to be....
Deputy Manager (Former Employee) –  Nottingham, ENG6 January 2016
I started as a chef, and made my way to Deputy Manager. it is not a easy industry to be unless you are passionate. Unsociable hours, long shifts etc.. and even so having a genuine smile on my face when opening and closing the doors after sometimes a difficult shift. this company believed in me and i worked to the best of my abilities to re-tribute that trust. i worked there in total of 15 years.
Pros
free food
Cons
unsociable hours
