Great environment to build your experience in catering
Kitchen Staff Member (Former Employee) – Bracknell, Berkshire – 27 August 2017
You are given a decent amount of duties to carry out in the kitchen. Making recordings for daily temperature checks, wastage, and items approaching their sell by date, as well as given tasks to fetch things from the pantry/walk-in fridge and freezers, do salads and other prep in advance. During closings, there are many tasks to complete, such as deep cleaning and disassembling some equipment for washing.
Staff were very friendly and offer various tips during cooking and working with the team. Communication is vital in a kitchen that can get very hectic around lunch time.
The only matter which was rather irritating was the unreliable schedule. The online version NEVER changes, which is annoying, since there are instances where you need to check it almost everyday on the staff wall, to make sure things haven't switched around. If you've come in to work to find out your shift has been changed till later or your shift isn't on that day at all, it sucks to be you and you've just wasted your time.
Opportunities to move up in the work-place, plenty of training, great for people starting out in catering
Unreliable online rota schedule
