Fast paced workplace
Looking after guests and explaining the whole menu to them.
I learned how to deal with any situation which may arise.

It was a competitive culture as there was always deals for the guests to choose from.

The hardest part of the job was the long weekend shifts.

The most enjoyable part was the free meals.

Never work there again
It's a typical chain of restaurants, you are just another number to them, they don't value you at all and will literally work you like a dog during the summer months and school holidays. When it's not peak season, you struggle to get even your contracted hours. You will also be expected to produce excellent food, maintaining spec quality and ahering to the product bible and still keep pace with the flow of orders, working in a small galley, put up with extreme heat and all whilst keeping your composure 'cos you are being watched by management and customers.

Overworked and Underpaid
Hostile environment, heavy workload, understaffed, no paid breaks - sometimes no breaks at all. They skimp on paying for all the hours worked, as well as requiring excessive amounts of cleaning for unnecessary staff.

Poor management, as they are bullied by the head office. Upon filing a report action is rarely, if ever, taken.

Good place to work for.
I enjoyed working for harvester as it opened up new pathways for me. I was given a responsible job role in which I relished the challenge to be a shift manager.

productive place to work with strict targets to meet
decent employer, good employees to work with and a very good focus on training and development. The main focus is on what the running costs and safety within the business. mainly long hours working as a chef.

Awful.
M&b are one of the most dreadful places to work for, always under staffed, no help or support from management and no training given to new starters and the pay is pathetic.

Great management
You get 33% off all Mitchel and butler brands. You get paid a pretty decent wage could be more, but you can cover a shift or two to top up your pay pack.

dont bother
If you want a job where you are underpaid, overworked, belittled, under-appreciated and used, then go ahead and apply.
Worked there for over 2 years and have never been treated so badly in a work place.

promised a promotion, then the gm back tracked and made me look like an idiot. higher management are awful too, told them about the gm stealing alcohol and did nothing about it.

No sympathy
No sympathy to home life working with this company. If you have family issues that require you to stay off they will see you as a burden and have no understanding
