Manager (Former Employee) - Dublin
worked here for a number of years full time. Used to close at 6.30pm during "winter hours" which was perfect but once the long 13hour shifts were introduced it was time to move on. Left working alone with no breaks if a colleague was out sick. "Canteen" had a stool, kettle and microwave all right beside the toilet. Barely any room to move. Staff are not looked after. All about the money
Pros
hours will suit students/evening/weekends
Cons
long 13hour shifts/no breaks/very high turnover of staff

Fair employer, hours of work too long , looked after their staff during Covid 19 mostly suit students or people with no children



Good opportunity to move up the ladder within this company to managerial roles.

Stay well away from this company, Staff are not valued/appreciated for their work, managers deal with situations in an unprofessional manner, sick days your more likely to get a disciplinary than to be asked if you're okay. They overwork you to the backbone for very little pay and no staff incentive, you dont get thanked for nothing and I've worked with a lot of staff and a lot of high up managers that just literally do nothing but talk and give out about each other. I wouldnt reccomend this company to anyone
Pros
Made me more confident confronting people, I had to confront both management and customer.
Cons
Horrible company, 12/13 hour shifts, Managers/Staffing managers think theyre above you and can talk to you how they like, very low pay for the work and shifts done, instead of giving like double pay for a sunday they give you a tenth, literally an extra €1 for every hour worked, sometimes youve to go without a break and very undertrained staff!
