Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Wendover, Buckinghamshire – 11 October 2017
The hygiene is awful, house keeping do not clean rooms properly, they do not wash the mugs and glasses that have been used properly they just rinse them in water, and they use the towels that guests have used to dry the cups and dry the bath out. It has completely put me off ever wanting to stay in this hotel.
You only get breaks if you smoke which pretty much everyone does, as I dont I was cleaning when everyone else was smoking. The actual management itself is very unprofessional and needs to be under new management.
Waiter (Current Employee) – Portsmouth – 8 October 2017
I usually work lunch hours and take food out to customers, It can get very busy and demanding but I enjoy the responsibility. The management is really good, always making sure i'm okay and helping me out with any issues. the hardest part of the job is dealing with angry or unpleasant customers, but the best part of the job is making sure customers leave with a smile on their faces.

I enjoy working for fullers smith and turner as it is professional. I can show my own hours. I get on well working with the team. I get to do online courses. I get to talk with the general public. It has helped with my confidence over the years.
GM (Former Employee) – Portsmouth, Hampshire – 18 September 2017
Really good to work for at first but in resent years the have become greedy. No work life balance and are just giving there managers more and more work and have shifted all responsibility on to the managers would not recommend working for them anymore.
Bar Staff/Waitress (Former Employee) – Hillingdon, Greater London – 10 September 2017
Awful place to work! Expected to work through lunch hours or breaks, after 2 days of starting left completely to do shifts alone, weren't shown how to do certain things then was told off for not doing the certain thing. 'Clicky' staff, rude assistant managers and a lot more!!
The job was mostly during peak times and as therefore i was always on my feet and doing something which mate the job enjoyable and all my colleagues were very friendly and we worked very well together.
Bartender (Former Employee) – Liphook, Hampshire – 16 June 2017
Fullers was a great place to work for experience as you work hard and always get to meet new people. I progressed quickly through fuller's becoming a supervisor and then a bar manager before working in the kitchen.
General manager (Former Employee) – London Heathrow Airport, Greater London – 31 May 2017
A lot of promise, no training a lot of request. Good value and vision on paper to make shareholder happy. They don't care about their employees. They care only to sell their beer at over inflated prices.
Chef (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 8 May 2017
Awful management, they only seem to care as long as money's being made, who cares if you work 7 days a week without a break, nobody in this company. Poorly paid but good training provided and good progression routes. As somebody else stated, you only get breaks in you smoke. One of the perks is staff tips, which then again would better each month if people could do their jobs properly.
Bar Staff (Current Employee) – Salisbury – 24 March 2017
Normally work there afternoon and evening, service pint for a regular costumers and enjoy talking with a new people, management is really attent to everithing and every month we organize a lot of good and fun event, the hardest part in the job is when is not a team work but when is a good team is the best part.
