Treat you like dirt,twelve hour shifts four days out of five .to many young untrained staff that don't have passion for the job.to many kitchen staff thinking they know everything basically too many chiefs and not enough Indians and with that goes the quality of the food.on really busy days you can work 12 hrs without a break finish after midnight and be back in the kitchen at 10 the next morning...keep clear
Pros
can't think of anything
Cons
long hours, for what you have to know and do terrible pay

I had to quit after a few months of working there as I was extremely bullied by the management, they were disgusting nasty people. The job itself is such hard work as it is crazy busy and massively under staffed. They constantly go through staff like no tomorrow as it is such a TERRIBLE place to work. The restaurant needs to be shut down in my opinion. There are so many complaints from customers, the food is disgusting, the whole place is unbelievably dirty and I knew of many customers even getting food poisoning from the place! I would cry everyday I worked at that place. I remember a few times the manager dropped food that was supposed to be given to a customer and he picked it off the floor and served it to someone. DISGUSTING !!

I wouldn’t recommend working here!! General manager and assistant manager are rude and don’t Care about their staffs well being! Aslong as they have their money they don’t care. They Had a nfs inspector come in unannounced and I was made to clear out a cupboard which hadn’t been cleaned in 12 years!! The kitchens just a disaster waiting to happen the foods all left out and mixed between raw an cooked There’s no organisation what so ever we end up doing our own thing as they never put a floor plan out .

got employed as 'bar staff' then stuck on the pot wash for the whole time i worked there, empty promises of moving to the bar once new staff was hired then shortly after hired new bar staff. i lost two stone working there through stress and for a 18 year old male at the time to weigh 9 stone isnt healthy
Pros
nothing
Cons
working in a hot sweaty kitchen, being spoken to like dirt and having to purchase your own drinks to stay hydrated.

The management is not the best. I would say that the environment is not a supportive one. The team are what makes work ok. If the team were not so supportive it would make day to day work a lot harder.

My days at work was simple you go in clean tables deal with customers and take the food to the customers that's was my works days. I have learned work as part of a team. The management was good they told you what was right and wrong to do .the hardest part of e job was trying to catch up with the cleaning after the customers left.
Pros
Discount
Cons
Long houre

a typical day at work would be your are doing what you need to be doing then 3 different managers would come round and tell you to be doing something different then moan when your previous jobs were not done, the hours in the kitchen are good but they do not put your personal life into the equation. They under pay you, The mangers are rude to you even if you have done nothing wrong, and even your co-workers are rude and rumors get spread. the Sovereign harbour one is not a good place to work. You have to pay for your lunch, you dont get paid for you breaks and because legally you have to have a 20 min break ever three hours, the Harvester will deduct your pay for breaks even if you have not had one.
Pros
learning new skills
Cons
ridiculous hours, under paid and rude managment
