      Pros

      Friendly environment, they’ll teach you everything from the start. you’ll learn to work hard even in busy days. i think it’s a very good place to start if it’s your first job.

      Cons

      the busy days at the restaurant can be quite challenging if you’re not experienced, but it’ll get better

      Pros

      The company care. Throughout this crisis they have done everything to support staff and keep us all up to date. They have developed technologies to assist us and ensure we can re-open strong. As horrible as it is to be working in hospitality at the moment i truly feel very lucky to be a part of the Ask Italian family and in the best possible position we can be at this time.

      Cons

      Nothing that i can think of.

      Pros

      It was a good job to do around studying - I had a very flexible manager who allowed me to dip in and out

      Cons

      Pay per hour is MINIMUM. Could be sent to work in different branches + they do not always hire bar staff which meant your job was made 10x harder having to serve food, drinks abs even make desserts in some branches as the chefs couldn’t be bothered late at night
