    Management don't speak one bit of English Staff in the kitchen don't speak English It's really hard to communicate Lies about family team vibes They don't recruit you for your work ethic So the team decides who gets in (I'm telling you NOW if you are not Italian, Hungarian, Spanish or polish they won't pick you in LONDON) Ethnic and racial issues (if you don't believe me go to few stores ask who's a white or black British in the team) I'm telling as soon as they hear you speak a proper English you are crossed out man ..... If you are a British you will be targeted probably you won't get the job like my friend today or they will never let you progress in the business like me ( I'm in the kitchen 4months and people that really have hard time to communicate serve the customer at the till and God knows what they mumble) The place is crawling of them it's hard to let some other English friend

    Pros

    room for growth, the possibility of weekly bonus, good hourly pay

    I've worked in several stores and unfortunately, the rules are not the same under every manager, there is clear favoritism, people are overworked and taken advantage of.
