    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 more than a year

    Pros

    The people! Everyone is hired for their personality meaning great people work there Tips - tips are a pro in any job the discount is awesome! can also be used elsewhere Rewards system - there is a reward system in place where you can build points and buy what you like

    Cons

    Customers can be horrible but depends where you work. The hours are long and can often go a long shift with out a break. Management is patchy in places Understaffing or saving on 'labour' means that a lot of social events have been missed due to always being at work A lot of stress is put on floor and back of house staff with little reward seen, more stress than its worth at times

    Pros

    Tips policy rota flexibility great people to work with. learning in all areas (bar and floor) great locations.

    Cons

    repetitive and limited staff menu. 1 meal per shift. Would be great when doing 12 hr shifts to have the option to have a small meal as you have no time once home and it is too late.
