Good company for training but treat their staff extremely poorly
Little or no support from management and with this company more than any other catering company, you are definitely only a number. The HR is beyond a joke. Overworked, underpaid and not appreciated. AVOID IMO

My dream job!
I started with baxterstorey 2 years ago. I began as a kitchen assistant. Since I began I have moved up in the ranks in my job and am aspiring to be a head chef within the company. I have had 2 good pay rises since I began. The company are sending me to Chef Academy which is basically culinary school to upskill and build my knowledge and confidence in cooking. I have been involved in many events such as Restaurant of the Year Awards..and more! I can honestly say I love working for baxterstorey..who are constantly bettering and training there staff.
Pros
Constantly being trained.. great hours. Lovely staff
Cons
A little pressure won’t kill you

Not a great company to work for
When I started with this catering company I basically was transferred from Aramark and the Kitchen in which I work was placed on tinder. Baxter storey gained the contract of food in the building that I had worked in. Unfortunately they were terrible to work for m all managers and head of company were rude and dismissive . it took me close to a month to even get paid . Basically Do not work for them. Worst catering company ever.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

Class
The job and people there were class, solid work night outs as well. If you want to make decent money and then blow all of it in mcgowans every week, dublin zoo is the place to be.

Hard work, busy and fast paced place
Working for them I could improve my English, pay my bills and get some money savings that allowed me to leave it after 1 years and 9 months to drive full focus in finding I job that matches my expectations to build a successful career in Ireland, regardless the position, even internship.
There is a hard work, multi task, busy and fast paced environment.

Besides the improvement of my English, I could learn a little about Irish culture and their consuming habits and made many good friends among my colleagues.

No complaints in general about the management.

The hardest part was the long distance from my home and the job itself, that is completely apart of my education and previous work experience. The most enjoyable was spend good time with my workmates, sharing culture and improving my overall knowledge about people all over the world, this is fascinating.
Pros
Spend time with people all over the world
Cons
Super hard and poorly paid work
