A typical day at work consists of cutting labour costs so you are ran off your feet after every shift. You will be underpaid and overworked, but who cares because it's cheaper labour? Staff are not cared for at all and are treated like they're robots, but we do get a 33% discount every month which is a positive - but is questionable as you're getting discount to pay your money from this job, back into their company.
Incentives are off bounds for Greene King. Except for the double pay excluseively to Christmas Day, and only Christmas Day. You work 13 days in a row with one day off and receive nothing but a minimum wage pay check at the end of the month. I think the only thing remotely good about the company is that the staff still seem to want to see their pub strive. My team members were and are great, even during the hardest of times.
The hardest part of the job is definitely the customer to staff ratio, due to the company putting pressure on everyone about cutting down on labour.
I have to say the most enjoyable part is the relationships you build with the pub regulars, and that is it.
GreeneKing would be a good company to work for if they actually started to consider the robots they have working for them, and how they're effected by every decision they make. Stop being a greedy company and treat your staff like they should be treat.
