Job in the kitchen
The hardest part of this job is comunication with managers.( not everywhere). Depends what and how many people you have in that kitchen to be a easy shift.

Don't bother, you're nothing more than an employee number to them, they'll never truly care about you, i know it's corporate, but wow they've taken it to a whole new, very low, level!!!

Do not work here. The management don’t care about the staff only the money and for minimum wage the hours that you do and the tasks that you get assigned are horrible
Pros
33% off when not on shift and 50% off when on shift
Cons
Long hours and ridiculous goals

It’s good if you have not out of work life
Working in this industry is very fun and teams are always full of happy team members. But it’s very rare if you get a Saturday off without booking it off. You have long shifts sometimes no breaks. The CEOs of the business are constantly cutting hours so you’ll often only be on with one other person in the kitchen and it’s hard they think it’s do able which it is but it takes a lot out of you and these up above people need to realise this! this!

Sales Focused and friendly team
Long hours but worthwhile when working with a great team, very busy workplace with good training i got the hang of my job very quickly. Learned a lot about customer service and how to work in a team, learnt how to deal with stress and endure pressure probably the hardest part was the constant busy environment.

Bad place!
Really bad place to work. Management is all for themselves (himself) there’s no work life balance. Long shifts, You Get talked about if you don’t or can’t cover shifts, not aloud more than 1 person off on holiday at a time, all frozen food! I know someone who got barred for leaving, she informed me that this is the same case for myself! Ridiculous. Everything about this place is not a good
place to be ! Absolutely shocking wage too for the job provided by myself

Food dates also get changed here, it’s against the law!
