    Pros

    Good Experience of the worst in the industry so you can value the best.

    Cons

    Management overall education status is close to zero. Probably because they are easier to control and put to work over 60h p/w with a contract of 54 and no overtime payment.
    Frozen food in all brands and many time they use out of date meat or fish, just because "it looks ok".
    High prices.
    Polish chefs,polish kitchen managers,polish area kitchen managers who in all hardly speak and are able to read English and they have no clue about allergies and food safety.

    Advice to Management

    Area and operation managers with education and analytical minds left the company in a hurry in 2017! That says it all about the rest of the uneducated, unskilled and mediocre (area/store/assistant management) left on the sinking boat. If you love what you do, this is not the company to go for.

    Pros
