Waitress (Former Employee) – Woking – 7 February 2019
(Only based of beefeater not the joke whitbread company) Staff issues can be obviously seen by the guests, management had no idea how to run the place, money loss every day and treated there staff like slaves, have no respect. Have no credit or reconciliation. Only words for this place is awful.
£40 for you and a friend to eat and review the food.
General Manager (Current Employee) – North England – 17 January 2019
Recent changes and cuts have seen the restaurants and hotel arm of Whitbread lose their direction and identity. In a sales declining market where companies must make every cut and efficiency change to maintain survivability. The lack of investment, labour cuts and poor support to operations has seen results drop ever further, especially around guest and team satisfaction. This is inevitably further accelerating sales decline and whitbread now consistently performs worse against the market.
Operations Manager Graduate Scheme (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 6 July 2018
as the graduate scheme we were promised progression and discussion of analysis and management. in reality its a use of extra man power where they need it and crazy hours - finishing at 11pm and working again at 7am, at the time the 1 hour commute minimum was not a consideration for wellbeing.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Twickenham, Greater London – 4 June 2018
Hospitality is never easy when it comes to work life balance and dealing with the public again is not an easy task. Whitbread itself is a decent company with some benefits. Having moved from one of the whitbread owned sectors to another, I was able to keep my long term employment rather than start again. However I've found in both sectors there has been a struggle with hours and what hours the management team are given to work with, leading to over stretching and under staffing.
Front of House (Former Employee) – Cambridge – 1 May 2018
I had this job as my first one after my Degree and I really enjoyed it. You do enjoy it if you like people and like everyday to be different like I did. However, they usually have lack of stuff which makes you have to work a lot more, than expected, sometimes you will have to go to work in your day off.

Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Tamworth – 30 December 2017
Great hotel and prospects, if you want to progress. You work alone and it's shift work it is rewarding and has good incentives. You work within a very busy fast paced business and need to be able to th ink fast and your guests come first.
