The Good the bad and the ugly
Kitchen Manager (Current Employee) – Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear – 17 June 2018
A stable job for someone willing to put the graft in, experience differs from pub to pub, sometimes you work for a pub manager who leads from the front and other times you work for an office bound manager who believes very much in the chain of command.
over all the company is very well ran, to what sometimes feels like ridiculous high standards with more red tape added each year, but that's probably why they are the undisputed overlords of the pub restaurant companies, its hard to keep up with all the policies and procedures.
very little scope to progress from kitchen manager with the recent removal of the regional catering manager role, unless you are willing to transfer to the front of house, expect to remain in this role for a long time.
expect to work very unsociable hours as a kitchen manager, working from late morning to early evening 5 times a week.
very unsociable hours, judged unfairly on results
