A consistently busy workplace, which might not be a problem if every employee was given specific roles throughout the day. Under-staffing meant that employees would have to consistently jump between roles which was stressful for the employee and worsened the customers experience both in terms of service and food quality which further amplifies stress. Its not the worst place to work in general but I couldn't see myself working there full-time long-term.

job is handy enough, people working with you are good,but the management really changes the place. depending on how well the managers like you depends on how many hours you get regardless of contracts. Managers of smaller departments have serious power trips and treat some staff like lesser human beings
seen a lot of HR nightmare moments in my time working, managers bullying staff and showing clear favouritism towards others.

area managers tend to treat staff like dirt under their shoes when visiting unless your'e a manager.
Pros
The people you work with can be great
Cons
stuck on 3-11 90% of the time, no free lunch or even water.

This place is a joke breaks the law and doesn't care about staff regardless of what age you are. How they get away with audits is beyond me as they don't follow the rules or regulations at all. I've been working in retail 15 years and had to correct managers here on my entitlements as they tried to tell me different and I knew my rights better than them. Their prices are crazy aswell a usual pr
Pros

Cons
