Featured Review

Current Employee - Manager

I have been working at phs Group full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Compliance is fast paced and can be challenging but it is highly rewarding. You get to work with great people with a strong team ethos led by an experienced leadership team. Lots of development... opportunities for the right people - clear business direction, supportive leadership, vibrant atmosphere, market leaders.

Cons

None - approaching a ten+ year work anniversary and very proud to be a part of the Compliance and wider Phs group.

"Kitchen"3 Jan 2020

Current Employee - Chef

I have been working at S.A. Brain & Company part-time for less than a year

Pros

Very flexible with time off for child care. Fixed shifts given which were a god send for child care arrangements.

Cons

Wanting to get staff out early to save hours then shouting at staff when deep cleaning wasn't completed because our pay was stopped.

Advice to Management

Additional hours need to be made for kitchen maintenance and cleaning. It's all very well that you want a 5* kitchen but employing chefs who can't cook an egg and kicking chefs out early who want too... clean down properly isn't going to work.
