Current Employee - People Team

I have been working at wagamama full-time for less than a year

Pros

from the minute i joined wagamama i felt so welcome and part of the family and did just fall in love the company. working here is like no where i have ever worked before, from the amazing food,... restaurants and most importantly people. wagamama have such a clear purpose and vision that it makes it so easy to know what you are all striving to achieve and how you are going to get there. i love that you are challenged to be the best version of you, given stretch in your role but also that there is such genuine care for your personal life and well being too.

Cons

if you struggle with a fast paced environment then wagamama may not be for you

Current Employee - TMT

I have been working at Itsu full-time

Pros

the company really cares about us. They made sure we kept our jobs when coronavirus started. Always sending us emails to motivate us and keep us informed. It is very nice to feel that the company... really takes care of us when things are difficult. I love itsu even more now. I am proud to work there.

Cons

Long shifts sometimes, early starts and a lot of standards to learn but that's all; the rest is very good I think
