    Pros

    People are lovely Free food which is nice

    Cons

    FOH get 90% of tips and the other 10% is split amongst everyone else, so technically paid a lot less than FOH. For every £20 of tips, one person gets £18, we get 20p. Disgraceful Poorly managed by both GM and area.

    I worked at Handmade Burger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    great team work feel, all of the kitchen wanted to get stuck in.

    Cons

    once ownership changed, felt like employees were not listened to. issues in the restaurant took too long to fix making the job much more difficult. Bonus structures disappeared with no reason why.
