meh.
poor management, no time to teach the new members properly, customers are nice. depends which site you work to be honest. the busier the shop , the better you'll be as you work for the money you earn. in smaller shops, you end up working more than is needed and do not get credited or get paid for it.

Productive
I love working at greggs, you never know what kind of day you are going to have, it could be busy and it could be slow paced. There are a lot of different tasks that are involved in the job, the breakfast and dinner part.

well-organized trainning, productive and warm team
The well-organized trainning courses impressed me a lot. You will spend around 2 hours for the first few weeks to finish the online trainning courses, which include customer service, work standards, stock rotation, etc.
It is a really warm family, from manager to colleagues, you can also feel the company cares about its employees a lot.

you dont get set shifts lot of favouritism. area managers dont care if you have sny issues
area managers dont care about your issues .you dont get set shifts well some people dont but if you face fits they allow some to have set shift but not other .one rule for one and one for other . they expect to much of one person .doing sandwiches in the scale time is hard .have to stay over without pay to finish them. they moan at relevent things like didnt smile right way.. they make you feel bad when customers put fake complaints in to get freebies . you are just a number they dont care if you have family or health isues

Good
Got a bit overwhelmed sometimes at the customers expectations of speed and how they are rude sometimes. However the staff were very lovely and supportive.

Great place to work
Great company to work for, if you have good management. Other team members make you feel happy. It’s like you’re in a big family. Customers vary, can be very rude or be very nice, just depends on the area you work at. It’s good pay, but it reflects the work you do in store, early shifts can be at 6am, I normally start at 7am. You definitely need a good sleeping pattern for this job!

Non stop working
Staff worked like trojans for mimimum pay.
Non stop from start to finish. Not helped by the fact it was the only shop on the estate so no let up of customers.


I'm sure some of the Greggs shops have it easier, but not this one.

Sales assistant
Good employee discount of 50% on made food items, and 25% on bought in stuff. The only negative is I was a 16 hour contact that was enough, and there is no more guaranteed hours unless your management.

if you want to be a disposable asset join up
They dont give a dam about you your just a number all there bothered about is getting the money in, selling stale products as products sit in the warehouse for a couple of days before going to the shops

Gregg's really is family
It's incredibly stressful at peak times, but the staff really are like a family. I can't do the very early mornings, so they do the rota to help accommodate me. We all help each other and the belly laughs we have really help with the stress of the job.

Ok but not great.
It seems there’s a culture that they want you to believe they care. But it soon becomes clear your not cares about. Customer is god and your the insect that serves them. 15 mins break for 4 hour shift is great and 2 x15 mins break for a 6 hour shift. But far too often your put on a 545 hour shift so you don’t get the entitlement. But at the same time your expected to be in the building 10 mins before shift.
