Pros

Fun place to work last worked there in 2017 but can't go back that far on this site. I don't really want to add my current employer as this is my throwaway account. Had great fun working for

Cons

It's only a part time job for me so I don't really have any cons. I would imagine full time the pay is low as it is low skilled but the atmosphere is great and the friends you can make are amazing.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    Entrevista gerida Gestor de Operações e General Manager. Ficou clara a falta de empatia um com o outro, interpelando-se diversas vezes nas questões ao entrevistado. Já para não referir a arrogância por parte do dito " General Manager"
    Interview
