Bad company to work for, poorly organised, no training provided
Catering trainer (sessional) (Former Employee) – Sheffield – 31 October 2015
Rewarding experience working with the kids, unfortunately that is the only positive thing I can think of to say.
The kitchen is very poorly equipped for the amount of students, very little training was given, no feedback from management on how I performed in my role, was misled as to when the job may become permanent, poor pay.
Center itself was rundown and dilapidated.
The center was under staffed, however staff were frequently taken out to go and work at NACRO Doncaster despite cover being available from another branch. Staff frequently having to cover areas outside of their vocational expertise, which was no good to the students.
The senior management was non existent. One member of staff commented that you would get more sense out of the kitchen bin than form the area manager. Other areas of NACRO were exceptionally inefficient notably payroll, it was a struggle just to get paid correctly and on time.
I would not recommend working for this company. The only benefit would be to gain experience to get a job elsewhere.
free lunch, friendly staff
lack of management and organisation
