      Pros

      Online rota, Easy to swap shifts, Accrue holidays quickly, company on top of this sort of thing and makes life a lot easier.

      Cons

      Minimum wage as a bar team member; if you are promoted to supervisor your wage will only increase by around 15p despite the heightened responsibility.

      Pros

      Good connection with other brand managers

      Cons

      The company puts very very little into it's people and are only about the profit, often leaving you with no budget for the simple things like napkins, toilet roll or hand soap. As the general manager you are given a very tight labour budget meaning you have no choice but to work 70 hours a week, often by yourself running the kitchen and front of house. The rbm's often don't care and simply say "it's your job". (You don't get paid any extra for these extra hours that you work) infact, you will only get a top up if your weekly wage falls below minimum wage for 4 weeks consecutively. (Then it's topped up to minimum wage only). Oh and you can forget about annual leave. You're expected to work that too if a member of staff goes sick. I worked a whole month without a day off whilst 3 months pregnant and that was just expected. To "suit business needs". Worst company I have ever worked for. It took for me to step out of my comfort zone and leave to try something else to realise just how much they take you for granted.
