    I can't think of ANY! They were awful throughout the time I worked for them.

    Cons

    Treated staff badly. Ops managers looked after their favourites. Company tried to break contract law and painted a target on my back when I stood up for my team.

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

    Pros

    Term time due to working in schools

    Cons

    Everything else. It’s hard work and you have to work extra to get help the meals out on time for the kids, but you don’t get paid for the overtime. If you’re off I’ll you end up owing them money ash wages are spread out over the year. Have to use and ruin your own vehicle. The meals are rediculously small and a y6 student is only allowed the same amount as a child in reception, with no seconds allowed even if there’s food left over. The food has to be taken back counted and thrown away. Food is supposed to be healthy but it’s full of bad fats

    Pros

    Unfortunately there are no positives about working within this company. My only advice is if you are looking to join this company do your research and then DON'T DO IT. You will never get the time you have invested back and life is too short and too sweet to waste with this contract catering company, and I use the term contract catering company very loosely.

    Cons

    Working alongside unsure and unsupportive chef manager that doesn't know how to manage staff that don't pull their weight;but always takes easy root and pushes staff that is already doing more than their fair share of the work and never acknowledging it. Working with a chef manager that would make a mistake and never own up to the mistake;but instead will blame staff members.
