    I worked at Pho Restaurants part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The team was absolutely fantastic, really friendly, understanding, and helpful. The training manual was a great resource, and the free staff meals were great.

    Cons

    Felt like the GM didn't listen to staff needs. Pair this with unpredictable and last-minute rotas and it's a recipe for stress. Also, people regularly got sent home when there wasn't enough work, which meant I often finished the week earning less money than I expected- not so much a problem for me as I worked part time, but for full-time staff I can imagine that would be a huge concern.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Pho Restaurants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They cut your hours on busy friday . So there will be only 2 person in the kitchen . I do not understand the management team who never work in the kitchen . Kitchen is not like front of house .we have alot of things to do . I think the owner of pho should investigate the HR of pho. The food quality will go down as less people on busy days

    Cons

    0 out of 10 working at pho

    Pros

    Great tips and 50% for staff. You get meals on your break and when you bring some friends, you can get discount on the whole bill.

    Cons

    Very busy environment to work at. Management was great at the beginning but when new management team came, everything got worse. The people at 'head of office' are the worst, very fake and because they think they are in a higher position, they look down on you.
