    I have been working at Las Iguanas full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Really great people work there, everyone higher up cares enough to remember your name and no one thinks that they’re so superior they can’t make genuine conversation with you which is very refreshing. Lots of fun perks for people at every level. They keep it current, constantly updating the things that they offer to employees, and constantly striving to make systems that make life easier and more streamlined Fast paced environment with an achievable bonus system for managers. Super supportive iguanas head office staff that are always readily available to help

    Cons

    Run by CDG, who’s head office staff (as with every single chain) are a little more difficult to get hold of and a little less willing to help than the iguanas ones. Not the biggest of cons as there’s incredibly little you’d ever need to actually contact them for.

    I have been working at Las Iguanas part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced, diverse work days. The ability to feel you can make a direct impact on the business through the effort you put in. Excellent staff discount benefits.

    Cons

    Work may be repetitive and tiring in the busiest seasons. For those who aren't physically capable of long shifts the jobs available may not be for you.

    Pros

    Fun incentives, great pay, flexible rotas... Your team becomes your family. There’s opportunities to progress onward to management. It’s fast paced and offers you daily challenges which is great if you get bored easily.

    Cons

    Sometimes it’s not all fun and games. There are some standards to adhere to, which means you’re not going to last long if you have a slack attitude. Sometimes the customers can be a bit difficult to handle but you just have to bite your tongue and get through it with a smile.
