Great
I find working for Mitchells and Butlers great as you get to work in competitive environments and can be transferred between different Mitchell and butler restaurants without having to re-apply

Good company but they don't pay enough!!!
Because you have to do a lot of things for example delivering the food cleaning the tables in and out,serving behind the bar,collecting glasses all the time,so you don't have a standard position in this business.

Great place
I've worked for this company for a few years and it can be stressful at times but its overall great, the company have a lot to offer especially for those who need help with personal problems they have a helpline.

eventful workplace
Each day is different, but can be fun if you're working with the right people.
Not much recognition for good work, or any type of feedback at all.

Not much progression opportunities

Worked here for 1 1/2 years
Management is okay, friendly enough. Some people I worked with weren’t the best, most were wicked. Job/life balance is atrocious. Pay could be way better

Good long-term job
In-house management really look after you, however the company as a whole pays less than the average of other bar jobs. The team really pull together to read targets and that is the best aspect about this job.

Awful
Rude aggressive management, no in-house training and expected to just get on with things no breaks on Sunday on a 14
Hour shift and very poor pay . Where do the tips go as staff never see them !!

Awful management
I’m no going to lie here, probably other sites would be better. But when a manager says to you I shall train you in this and this and make your career bloom. Then, goes on holiday, doesn’t do anything for you. Disrespects you to other staff and guests. Is no manager. Then gets rid of me just before my probation ends because I didn’t for-fills job. (To which other staff as well as herself didn’t do either on countless times) guests were amazing and friendly and would always have time for them!. Staff on the other hand are quiet clicky and if you don’t fit in. Your out. Try to avoid this place. Pay is shocking for what work needs to be done. And the hours you put in. No rewards at all for hard work. Guess managers just look after their own backs. Avoid

good staff, terrible managment
People I worked with were all nice and friendly and 1 or 2 of the supervisors were great but the management staff are terrible, do not care about the workers and it seemed like they actively went out of their way to be awkward.

Shocking
Would never work for this company again. So stressful. Wouldn't always get breaks or time to eat. Expect you to work stupid hours. The pub I worked in had 6 general managers come ago and countless relief mangers in the 9 years I was there

A wonderful company to work for.
All good but the branch that I worked at there were no opportunities to progress and work my way up to where I wanted to be so I left.

Staff were friendly but I had issues within the workplace with one particular member of staff.


But other than that I enjoyed working there.

Disgraceful
Poor non existent managers who don't care for anyone who works for them. Long hours, no praise when you do amazing work, no chance to progress your career, they speak to you like your nothing & blame all business faults on the staff taking no responsibility themselves. DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY IT WILL WRECK YOUR LIFE.

Lovely people, good part time job
Day to day is fairly similar, jobs are simple and easy to pick up. Staff are lovely, front and back of house. Learned good customer service skills. Pay isnt the best but can somtimes make it up in tips and good discount for plenty of other restaurants. Hours are very flexible, management always there to help and fit hours around the individual.
Pros
Lovely people, interacting with customers all the time
Cons
Pay
