The social side of working here was fantastic. I met a lot of great people and the company so a lot for their employees. However I feel I was never truly accepted, which is odd in a HR team. I would often come in to find people gossiping about you (or others) and the head of HR would always make a thing of walking past the window two or three times if you had a meeting (of which there were lots given it was HR)
Pros
Socials, Christmas, lunchtime restaurant
Cons
Gossip culture, negative team ethos, stab in the back mentality of some

It's a good place to work
People are friendly and ingredients are local and fresh so it's a pleasure as a chef to cook fresh food with good ingredients

Not the worst of the companies to work for, they are corporate which does give you benefits regarding job security etc but it does make any process longer than it needs to be

Not a bad place to work, could be better, for example the facilities aren't the best and it's not always reliable in terms of having a full staff team each day.

Disappointing tenure at a company that showed little care in showing appreciation for good performance and were slow to recognise or offer opportunities for progression.

Place where I worked was awful and being accused of situations that eventually mounted to nothing. If I was allowed to help I would still be there now.
Pros
Great head chef
Cons
Poor customer service and owner

Worked for this company for 2.5 years. the first 6 months was okay, the net 2 years were heartbreaking. NO chance of a pay increase. Ops manager she was lazy and had no idea what she was on about, everyone reading this will probably know who. NO development in place, cant be promoted in house have to College no matter how many times you have proven yourself to them. Only ever see the ops manager when something has gone wrong. Only the GM's receive gratitude for hard work which then makes people feel like whats the point working. Fullers say they are passionate about fresh food yet its frozen and bought in. They lie on job advertisements saying its local. If your outside of London in one of their sites trust me your produce is NOT local. Support from Ops managers and Exec Chef is next to 0. The company wants to see blood sweat and tears over and over again just for the fun of it. They do not stick to agreements, just tell you what you want to hear and then when the task is done, ignore emails and calls to get what your owed. Such an unfaithful company and its not so much the GMs, its the people above them who call the shots. Take my advice, you would rather be on the dole than work for this "family" company.

The position is fast paced yet the back up and support is minimal. Finding good staff in remote locations causes a bit of stress especially during summer peak periods. Long hours.

Fullers has some incredible managers. They are kind, compassionate, encouraging, and will work with you to empower you to produce the best work you can.

Unfortunately, these managers are few and far between. If you find one, stay there, because although Fullers has rigid standards for service in their pubs, the same cannot be said for the way GM's are encouraged by higher management to operate. Cloak and dagger mentality is rife, with promotions becoming not about skills or experience, but if certain people like you or not.


It is really sad. When I first joined over a decade ago, the company seemed to a place to work hard, grow, and be rewarded fairly. I only wish this was still the case. Maybe under a new operation director they can get back to the company they were when I started.

It is expected to have a high turn over of bar staff, but you KNOW there is a problem when you see a high turn over of management, which is what I saw while working there.
Most of the training was done online.

I did not enjoy it most of the time.
