Job culture
Not a single weekend off in six months. Constant WhatsApp messages, on several groups that they make you a member upon starting. No regard for your free time whatsoever, calls, texts, emails. Unrealistic deadlines, they don't care that you are on holiday.Constant issues with cash and stock and all ops team, including owners aware, yet no support in dealing with rather the opposite.Very cliquey culture and unpleasant approach to anyone who appears to actually have any knowledge of the trade.If you have ever worked for the respectable company then simply stay far away from this one.
Pros
Money seems good
Cons
No work life balance, terrible company culture, messy structures

Come across as caring about their staff but in reality they don't and will terminate your contract as and when it suits them. If you get to an interview its worth asking why they have had so many GMs in all their sites.

Thank you for your feedback - we constantly look for opportunities to improve. it is always our goal within Livelyhood to have fun and to look after one another. We do genuinely care about our people and in keeping with this culture, we were delighted that our contribution to raising the awareness of the fantastic work of the Licensed Trade Charity was recognised recently by the Licensed Trade Charity itself presenting us with an Employer award. No one is perfect, but we try hard, we continually learn and we're committed to hospitality and each other. We have also recently invested in the appointment of a Operations Director and a Learning & Development Manager at Livelyhood and we’re excited about the continued positive contribution of these roles on our company and for our people.Regarding your specific feedback on terminating contracts as and when it suits us, I would have to disagree and both myself and our Operations Director would be very happy to chat with future candidates about GM turnover and retention within Livelyhood. Feel free to contact me directly at email-us@livelyhood.co.uk if you have any more questions, ideas or feedback. Thank you for all that you did at Livelyhood,Emma

The owner doesn't care about the company or staff. The manager's are buffoons and the structure is shocking. You work ridiculous hours for p*ss all money and no appreciation. I would advise to stay well clear.

Thank you for your feedback - we constantly look for opportunities to improve. it is always our goal within Livelyhood to have fun, to look after one another and we love seeing our people succeed. It’s not always perfect, but we try hard and are committed. I am unhappy to hear about your feelings regarding your own experience and if there are specific issues, I would appreciate hearing more so we can improve things. Feel free to contact me directly at email-us@livelyhood.co.uk if you have any more questions, ideas or feedback.Regarding your specific feedback on care and structures, in recent months we have heavily invested in our structure bringing new standalone Operations Director and Learning and Development Manager roles into Livelyhood and we’re really looking forward to the continued positive contribution of these roles.It remains our focus within the senior team to create a culture where each person at Livelyhood knows that they are an important part of the Livelyhood Family. This is an exciting time in our company as we continue to grow our sites and our people and we will continue to work hard for each other, seek those opportunities to improve and develop and to engage our people. Thank you for all that you did.Emma
