had a great time working at giraffe. employees are developed and made to feel part of the family. when i worked for them the focus was on hospitality and not about hard selling to guests.

The managers are so supportive and amazing to work with, they chuck you in the deep end but also assist you if you need it. Our customers are also amazing and so friendly

Es un sitio genial para trabajar. Hay un buen ambiente de trabajo. El personal es muy eficiente y amable. Tienes café y bollo para desayunar.
Lo mejor sin duda es la rapidez en el servicio, y que tienes la posibilidad de tratar con gente de distintos países.

En general es un sitio genial para trabajar.

Stay away from this company. I've never in my life experienced such a horrible company to work for, never got any training and then when you would mess up the management would bully you. They don't care. The management are bullies, one particular guy Supervisor was the biggest bully I've ever met in my life. I had money stolen from the staff room, they never did anything AT ALL and laughed it off. Shouting at you, swearing, and the management did nothing. The day I left this company was the best day, away from these bullies and didn't feel no stress from constantly being targeted .

Es una buena empresa para empezar en el mundo de hospitaleria pero es importante seguir adelante con mejores restaurantes cuando ya tenga experiencia ya que las horas son muy largas y no hay via social.
Pros
Ser manager
Cons
No hay descanso

Not for chefs , if u are a chef then just avoid this Company,
Once a very good company to work for but not anymore,

They are treating chefs as slave, as a head chef you have to work morning till close with just one chef working with you and u might not get chance to have a glass of water,

money is good but be careful again they are not trustworthy, u might not get paid your holiday money.

giraffe world kitchen was a fun place to work however after 6 months of working there, the place was due to close at the end of june. However it shut down 7 weeks prior to this with only 6 days notice. The newcastle team I worked for and with were great and it was a shame the place had to close.

I worked sometimes over 50 hours a week. I was responsible for the dishes I was issuing, for the cleanliness of the kitchen and the safety of the staff, I was reporting, I was counting the stock and I was making orders for the kitchen and the restaurant. As Head Chef, I did not have full training. The company's budget was limited. I trained a new staff. We worked in a very small group. He gets along well with the employees.
Pros
break one hours or two
Cons
full time

Pros
Yes
Cons
No
