Waitress (Former Employee) – Abingdon – 17 January 2018
I actually looked forward to going to work, I enjoyed working with the staff and most of all I loved the interaction with the customers and making their time at pizza express the most enjoyable I could. even though I worked evenings and weekends I was able to spend quality time with my baby and I was able to walk my son to and from school without rushing, I was free to go to all of my sons shows and consultations at school through the day.
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – London – 7 January 2018
Setting up tables, organising prep, making sure everything is clean & workable. Learnt to serve orders, multi task, interact with customers more. Management was alright. Workplace culture was productive and pretty busy. Hardest part was attending to customers needs at one time sometimes the staff was minimal. Making someone's day was the most enjoyable
ASSISTANT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Kent – 3 January 2018
Job was alright, full of politics which is never fun. Power tripping managers, as well as an expectation to work more than your contracted hours unless there was someone to cover your days off. Little to no recognition from upper management.
Waiter (Current Employee) – st martins lane – 29 December 2017
The best part in the waiter job is to get to meet all kind of people in the same day. The work is value with minimum wage what makes it a challenge to provide an excellent service in order to earn a good tips.
Chef (Former Employee) – Swansea – 25 December 2017
Treated like a slave, Hard labour job. I worked very hard to be given unfair hours and unstable pay, not to forget the unpaid hours i have to chase. no looking after staff whatsoever, with big nasty attitudes of managers.
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
Trainee (Current Employee) – Manchester – 6 December 2017
Great Staff Members, they are helpful and funny. The hardest part of my shift is working alone in the kitchen washing dishes, the management is top class, the most enjoyable is that you get staff food during your shift, which is amazing and from what i learned it's to be more reliable and confident.
Waitress (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 24 November 2017
The job was fine although the salery is terrible especially as a young person. However this is similar to the other Italian chains that i have worked at. If you are good, you can make good tips is about the only perk.
Food on shift
Low hourly rate, don't know shifts far in advance (sunday for monday)
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
Duty manager (Former Employee) – Leeds – 1 November 2017
I was very lucky to work with a great team of people so all the usual challenges of running a busy restaurant were shared. had great support from my manager and across the local area. had I not left the area I would probably still be there.
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.
