Exceptionally poor management, cant even write a rota correctly, no uniform provided yet they moan about the colour of my chef jacket, wages are constantly tampered with by management, they will clock you out before you've actually finished your shift, sometimes by several hours, expect to be put on emergency tax aswell because the manager doesn't know what he is doing, every staff member I spoke to is unhappy at the way the business operates.
Pros
Absolutely none
Cons
Deceitful managers, unorganised, extremely poor working conditions.

If you like lots money in summer great. Winter you will go from 48 down to 15 hours. Managers do not look after staff all about money. Too much course work

A typical day at work is sometime boring, and long but also fun, the hardest part of the job is that I’m working in a place that I don’t won’t to be, the most enjoyable part of the job is when I cook the food,

The job itself was rewarding but you had to work every weekend which does not suit if you have children and want to have a decent kind of life. Good easy to get to location though.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Long hours

Good place to work. very hands on you learn as you go, meal discounts for when your on break are handy, split shifts where a killer and kill your social life.
Pros
on shift discounts for meals.
Cons
Long hours

Normal shifts are about 12 hours in length, starting at 8 am and finishing at 11 pm, with a one hour break. when working in the kitchen, you expect pot washers and chefs to have a difference in pay as a chef will have more pressure and more work to do. But not here, you will get paid minimum wage and get laughed at if you ask for a raise.
Pros
There are no pros for this job!
Cons
Long hours, minimum wage, no social life.

The pay was the best i was on at the time but it was very hard work, the managers weren't overly helpful and everyone kept to themselves but it was worth the extra money compared to my previous jobs at the time

rewarding job for those who like to cook, but not for those who want to avoid stress. a typical day involves alot of cleaning and contant awareness of your environment
