    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Jamie Oliver Restaurant Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours and free food on shift, as well as a great internal management team.

    Cons

    Made redundant with 0 notice or compensation after working for two years. The matter was handled with absolutely no sensitivity and care for their employees. They expected a lot from us and it's a shame nothing was given in return.
