positive and fast moving atmosphere
Server/Waitress (Former Employee) –  West Midlands14 May 2018
days included housekeeping duties and handling of hot food and drink to customers.

the hardest part of the job was the long weekend hours due to the fast turnover of the restaurant.

the atmosphere was fun and friendly and I gained skills including time management and how to prioritise.

Too much concern for cost cutting/Low moral
Chef/Cook (Former Employee) –  Ayr, South Ayrshire17 August 2017
When I started I really enjoyed the job for the first 8 months or so then cutbacks and poor management with hours being cut or changed on short notice being a constant drain on employees. Front of house and Kitchen staff both mostly friendly but certain individuals would lack and rely on others too often
Pros
Friendly co workers
Cons
Long/Late hours
