Waitress (Current Employee) –  Dudley18 January 2019
Working at the harvester is a fun job, where you have interaction with the customers. it's satisfying when the customer has had a good experience, to which you have contributed. You always feel like part of a team and so I've learnt key team-work skills as well as communication skills through interaction with the customers. The hardest part of the job is trying to satisfy everyone. As a waitress, you must serve the customers, as well as making drinks, and taking out food. This can be demanding when the restaurant is busy, however, I enjoy the challenge.
Pros
Discount
Cons
unsociable hours

Harvesters was by far my favourite work environment to work within, The atmosphere was always upbeat and happy and the emplyers always took pride in their customers and facilities.

Pros
Friendly management, discounts when eating out at any of their pubs.
Cons

Waitress (Former Employee) –  Chorley, Lancashire23 December 2018
When I worked here the manager wasn't very pleasant. It was a good job as it was busy and was good at flexible hours to work around college. The hardest part of the job was being busy and understaffed.

Long hours, basic pay and no advancement in career
Chef (Current Employee) –  Derby, Derbyshire2 December 2018
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.

Good first job
Waitress (Former Employee) –  Milton Keynes15 November 2018
A typical day of work can get busy but you get to meet different types of people and gain more experience and skills. The management is good, however, sometimes different situations could be handled better. The hardest part of the job is making sure you are keeping up with orders when it is busy. And the best thing about the job is you get to know different people and gain experience at the same time.
Pros
Gain good work experience
Cons
Gets busy

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
