Featured Review

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

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Wahaca full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great family atmosphere and clear goals for the business

Cons

The food can cause rapid weight gain

Advice to Management

Bonus structure heavily incentivises managers to stay in sites rather than progress into operational roles
