"Better Time Here Than With Main Rival"

Aug 9, 2021 - Bartender/Server in Chilwell, England, England
Recommends
Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

Pros

Better than Wetherspoon.
Slightly better money than rival.
Treated better by management and head office.
Good discount, on food and alcoholic drinks.

Cons

0 hour contract. Still low wage for the work/abuse received from customers. Long hours, sometimes split shifts 10am start with 1am finish. This does have a large break of a few hours. High staff

Advice to Management

Increase per hour wage. - this will encourage good staff stay on.
I was glad to see your reaction to COVID, it was reassuring.

    Applied on Indeed and got an interview quickly. Turned up early for the interview and got interviewed by a man. Went through the questions and my CV. Asked me if I had any questions and then shock my hand and it was over.
