As a renewals consultant it was very evident that there was high pressure selling, and the base wage was next to nothing, consultants relying on ripping people off so they can them selves get a higher wage from bonuses.

It is a fun place to work. The people that you will meet there are very nice and enjoyable. The shift work that you will do will be difficult if you need to have specific days off as they probably wont accommodate for you. The hardest part of the job is dealing with non compliant customers who wont listen. The most enjoyable part is when there are few to no people around and you get the chance to chat with coworkers.
Pros
free meals, good benefits, staff accommodation(still have to rent)
Cons
very late or early shifts, either very busy or very quiet.

could be better, promoting staff based on their ability will be a good thing instead of who is liked. staff appreciation could be better with more attention going to the operational team.

Really welcoming, a fun and happy place to work most of the time! Although work is not guaranteed which is a shame. Struggle to get home too after a night shift as nightmare with the trains. In the middle of nowhere but a lovely atmosphere!
Pros
Free Lunch, WiFi, Shuttle Bus
Cons
Only temp

Early start 5am made sure all area's were covered. keys allocated to all area's complete work rota's, holiday/wage input on computer.
On the job training NVQ level 3 in management worked from the bottom to supervisors / managers roll.

Also people skills are needed in all area's.

The hardest part was to cover all areas when staff were off sick or on holiday and to prioritize the most important area's.

I enjoyed working here as everybody from all departments worked as a team.
Pros
Good benefits for all staff .
Cons
made redundent

Free Lunches

My day consisted of setting up events (mostly weddings), serving those attending this and clearing after, sometimes even setting up for the day after.

The standard of service is much higher due to the events being of such importance, which can make it a more stressful job for some
Pros
Food and drinks available in canteen, friendly management
Cons
Long hours without break, high pressure environment

If you like to feel totally unwelcome and you are looking to work in a place where you will work long hours with no tips or rewards until your soul is drained this is the perfect place for you!

The word team work there is a joke. This is the first time where I work in a restaurant where there is no communication or help between colleagues.


Most of the managers don't have a clue in how to lead a team and spend most of their time gossiping between them or belittling the new staff and the consequence of this is a total mess.


The changing rooms are always really dirty and in the staff canteen you have to check your cutlery and glasses to be clean !


The Club and clients are lovely; I wish they had a proper management to take care of this and change the place into a more decent one.


The working hours are really long and is definitely a hard job but it will be definitely bearable if you weren't make feel worthless all the time.
Pros
The Club, Lovely customers, Kitchen staff really professional
Cons
Horrible Management, really rude waiters, gossip rules, dirty employee' s facilities

The banqueting department recruits workers on a zeros hours based contract. Although there are some advantages to this it can be difficult to find work as there are not always enough shifts to go round for everyone.

Power hungry management leaves employees feeling unchallenged, unsatisfied and unheard. No space for progression. Staff banned from using any facilities. Completely stuck in a time warp!

It’s been an amazing year to work into the Club, very challenging and interesting.
I am an experienced Chef de partie and I believe that today my knowledge and my expertise are strong enough to go to the next step. To apply as a sous-chef. I have worked within fine dining and brasserie kitchens for 5 stars hotels those past 5 years. I have made my skills as a seasonal chef for 4 years from the traditional French restaurant to the international two michelin stars restaurant into the must famous destination of France. I have developed my skills to be able to work under pressure and with a high expectation of quality. I have a constructive and practical approach to problem-solving.

I have that dynamic attitude at all times which can give inspiration and motivation to the team.

There is a distinct lack of opportunities for graduates to start and consequently advance in the office environment of the company. The company has no available graduate scheme.

The restaurant management team is supporting only people who they like, no matter professionalism and great relationship with team and guests. Restaurant team are mostly relatives, which explains the excluding of new team members. Sadly, a great company and work environment.
Pros
Establishment
Cons
Team ignorance
