Can be rewarding, however ST Austell slowly ruining Graze.
General Assistant (Former Employee) – Graze Bath – 26 September 2017
I worked at Graze Bath for a few years, under both Bath Ales management then St Austell. Current managers, who are still from Bath ales era and are great. However it has become obvious they receive little resources from St Austell to carry out their job as effectively as possible. Unfortunately it appears since the St Austell takeover many key members of the Graze team have been pushed out or left the restaurant. Pay and benefits are less under St Austell, particularly for those under 21. Staff discount of 40% off food has been reduced to 10%. Since St Austell takeover, they have found it hard to hold down a Head chef, the new one is extremely rude to foh staff. Saying all this, there is still a good team there, that at times are fun to work with. Busy shifts are very rewarding and the tips are very good, supplementing the lower wage rate well. Hours are flexible but expect late finishes on a Saturday.
Poor leadership from St Austell
