“Flexible working hours but mad pace of work and not many opportunities to get on”

I like the fact that the shift patterns are flexible Dealing directly with customers is enjoyable mostly

There is not enough staff for the amount of work, so that means we never get proper breaks, if any and the work just doesn't stop. The top management don't really care about their staff, they have no people focus whatsoever. We are just numbers to them. There is no obvious way to progress careerwise if you start on the customer service side Management in general do not seem to have any proper training in how to manage staff

We're in a catering sector but there is no discount for staff. How does that work!

“A decent working system in place, with some faults”

A rather less known, but prestigious and large group. They have a lot of good systems in place that make everyday work easy and stress free. They have decent pay and benefits. And the management largely stays out of your way.

The hours can get very long. The work can get very boring. And if you stick around for a year or so, both of those things will start to happen more frequently. This can slowly becoming boring, soul crushing work for a large multi national.

Nothing to write home about

“An appalling company that treats its staff like sh*t.”

Leaving and going to a job with prospects

The lies, the convenient forgetting to pay the staff, the illegal dismissals. The degrading ways in which the client is referred to as "the enemy" they are not your friend...WTF

They pretend everything is ok. The fact they claim to be concerned about nutrition and then use packet mixes to feed children in schools whilst acting like its normal practice

“Disorganized lying bullshit company”

Handing in my notice

Working with low standards and lying to the client, unprofessional unsupportive company, processed poor quality food in all schools

How they lie about employing nutritionists to keep the menu healthy when really its all out of salt/sugar/preservative loaded instant packets of very poor quality fast food

“"You look disgusting"”

Finding out they're the worst most discriminative people to work for ever and swerving them in good time.

EVERYTHING. No training. Rude. I was told I can't work in FOH because I have stretched ears and they're horrible. No help. Rude. They have no idea what they're doing with their staff. Oh and did I mention RUDE?

The on going vile attitude towards staff. Oh and to the woman on the phone who said "can I just ask personally, how do you expect to get a job with holes in your ears?" I don't like to justify myself, but I've found a new brilliant job, surprisingly in hospitality. Who actually let their staff have personality and do not judge them on their appearance. I hope people see this company for what it is. Discriminative assholes.

“driving wages down while driving sales volume up.”


Exploited workforce. Bullying management. Lousy product.


“Worse Company To Work For”

There IS No Good thing

Poor Management, Poorly Organised, I was a Manager for the Cleaning, and Guess where we Sat and done everyones wages? Thats Right PC world In Thurrock Lakeside.. How Disgusting is that.. Very Shit, ,If there wasnt enough money my Manager would tell me to cut hours from staff and don't pay them..

All of it

“Low quality low pay”

leaving and learning how to develop and further your skills working with companies that care

Cheap processed food and ingredients, a lack of compass staff ability and knowledge, lack of caring, cowboy methods, low standards poor product

How they get away with such dirty unprofessional kitchens

“Just dont bother”

The cleaners are really nice people

No organisation, really bad sickness rate no cover cleaners

How they survive

“Treat saff like mugs and when staff ask for help the anwser is we will replace you”


The management don't care all about them

Being left to run a cafe when it's busy on your own joke

“Awful bullying company try calling H/O, you can’t get support from hr they tell you unless your management”

Not one thing

The management and even make a rota in two years

How awful such a large company can be
