A typical day at work for me would be making sure everywhere is clean and tidy and making sure tables are clean and ready for customers. Taking orders and serving food and drinks

I worked here when I was 18 now being 22, my branch was the literal pits, bottom of the barrel kind of pub with customers being the same. Management was insanely bad because he didn't care about his job or employee's - thankfully got sacked. Health and saftey in the whole building was atrocious, everything was filthy, old, colleagues were rotten. Its been reburbished now but been told the atomosphere of work hasn't changed. I quit after a month, and only worked there 2 days a week. Rip to anyone who goes to this branch, I wish you good luck!

My experience working for this company was very good. The managers were extremely outgoing and they were unbelievably helpful if I ever needed guidance.

I really enjoyed being a part of the team
I would open and close the bar, and also do shifts waitressing. The staff really do work in a great team and all of the shifts i worked there were busy.

Too much work load forced upon individuals. I was heavily pregnant, and was waitressing 10 tables alone which is between 40-60 people at any one time.
Pros
50% off food
Cons
Rubbish pay

if you have no life outside of work then this is for you, the tips are great but that's about all. as in every job you make it what it is but you will have to learn to live with out sleep from all the hours you have to do

The balance between work and social life isn't great, rota's are done in advanced but are 90% likely to change meaning your plans don't always go as expected.

There are lots of good days, that make you feel like you are making a difference but then there are those days that make you question whether or not you need the job.


For some people it's a great job, it always helps when you have a good team of people around you, but tensions can run high like any job.
Pros
33% staff discount in M&B Brands, Tips are good.
Cons
Not a great balance between work and social life.

Worked at The Hawth Park Inn Crawley for a few months and it was the worst few months of my life. Constantly got messed around with my hours and pay. They do actually owe me money still. Managers are disgusting horrible people that put you down and made more than one member of staff cry at work
Cons
Working there

Duty plane to work with lack of management. You’ll be sent home with quiet even if you’ve just arrived to start you shift. And called in to work at a moments notice.
Pros
None
Cons

- My typical day at work was serving guests and cleaning behind the bar.

- I learned how pour drinks behind the bar.


- I didn't get along with the managers


- The hardest part of my job was the angry guests and sometimes when I had messed up, I would feel a bit embarrassed.


- The most enjoyable part of my job was the conversations I would have with the guests.
Pros
Conversations with guests
Cons
Long hours

When I was working with Harvester George Stephenson I enjoyed working with the customers and the work members. The most enjoyable aspect of the job was when the customers was satisfied with the service they received. A normal working day would be you have you're own section because I worked front of house and then you handled that section such as cleaning tables, serving customers, taking orders and handling money.
Pros
Enviroment, Company

Used this as an opportunity to build on my people skills. Pay wasn't great and long hours. Didn't feel like they cared about their employees. Wouldn't choose this as a career.

would start by setting the bar up for the day making sure it was ready for service.

i would help out in the restaurant and the kitchen.


Serving customer would be the main role but also closing the bar down at the end of the day
