Good Staff, Bad Managment
Bar Member (Former Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 7 February 2018
You're just thrown into working here, there isn't any training. If you do something wrong you're often made to feel awful about it, despite not being trained at all. Team leaders get rude and stressy at you when you ask for a break or ask a question. Higher staff members are often very blunt with customers and don't look happy at all. When a higher member of staff is in a bad mood, it has a massive impact on everyone else and I think they fail to see that. I really enjoyed working here, but the staff attitude is absolutely awful - it wouldn't hurt to smile. Ontop of all of that, I wasn't paid on time and when I was, it wasn't all of the money I was owed. The working hours are ridiculous, I often felt it would be better to just move into the Hostel above Walkabout because I was there all the time over the weekends. Starting at 6pm and leaving at 6am most times I worked here is just not okay. Being given one break as well, in a 12 hour shift? It's absolutely ridiculous. It doesn't just effect you in tiredness, it also affects your work motivation and it doesn't help if you're absolutely knackered and you've worked your hardest and best. The pay needs to go up and everyone needs to be happier, other than that, it was great. Most of the time.
