Manager on Duty (Former Employee) – Epsom, Surrey – 30 June 2018
PizzaExpress is great for students and part-timers. Minimum salary, however six years ago, you could make almost the same money in tips, that's if you worked in a busy restaurant, of course. Not sure of the culture these days though.
Manager on Duty (Current Employee) – Abingdon, Oxfordshire – 20 December 2017
A very nice place to work with a nice atmosphere and nice people. Management is extremely important and luckily we have a good one. It can be hard when busy and people can get frustrated but overall its good. Also free pizzas as staff food
Good progression and rewarding if customer service is your forte
Waitress/Manger on Duty (Current Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 6 November 2017
The job is customer service orientated. There are chances for progression if you work hard and a chance for extra income. When progressing to management, there is a lot to learn and very good experience. It improves your ability to be confident and improve skills with service. It is a physically tiring job and the hours can be unsociable but the customers make it all worthwhile.
Free meals, chances to win prizes with incentives, extra income
A decent place to work if you can deal with the tradeoffs
Manager on Duty (Current Employee) – Essex – 23 October 2017
Not an awful place to work, but youll have no social life and if your partner works regular hours it may cause a problem. Ive met some great people working here but management overall has been poor. i must note that area management is very good, its just restaurant management that is so poor.
Manager on duty (Current Employee) – Manchester Central – 3 February 2017
Awful place to work, wouldn't send my worst enemy to work there. There is a general unrest within the company, where a vast majority of its staff are itching to jump ship and get as far away as possible. Sadly, when I first started to work for this company it was a respectful and decent establishment. It is nose-diving into the ground.
Waitress and Manager On Duty (Former Employee) – High Wycombe – 7 November 2016
I had a very encouraging and thoughtful manager who cared a lot about his staff and always wanted them to do well. We had a lot of fun but were also extremely hard workers. We cared about our restaurant and looked after it well with a regular cleaning rota for all members of staff. I was encouraged to become a Manager on Duty and was given a lot of guidance about this role. I thoroughly enjoyed the role but unfortunately gave it up to focus on my degree. I miss working here desperately as the team were wonderful and amazing. Everyone was very kind and it was just a very pleasant place to be. A lot of staff would come in on their days off. Hardest part was trying to juggle the managerial role as well as my degree but my manager was very thoughtful and understanding and made me feel okay about stepping down from it. The most enjoyable part is hard to say because it was such a pleasant place to work and be at daily.
Manager on Duty (Current Employee) – Street – 10 March 2016
Pizza Express is a well known high street restaurant chain, who look after their staff well. In both restaurants I have worked in, I have enjoyed working with all parts of the team which is obviously a positive for the management team.
