Official response from Gourmet Burger Kitchen

Thanks for your review. We take feedback very seriously and would welcome further feedback to ensure we are always learning and adapting to create a great place to work.Please feel free to contact me direct on jane.cartwright@boparanrestaurants.com

Micromanagement all the way

Manager was rude and abrasive and would pass remarks about my abilities in front of customers all the time, and then I'd be told to smile "because that's what customers like to see". The other staff were nice enough but constant micromanagement made life difficult which I felt came across stronger to customers.


Free Lunch


Long hours, Bad pay, bad upper management

Kitchen staff and floor staff

I loved working here my manager treated me really well and I originally worked in BOH in the kitchen and I wanted to try out the front of house and my manager allowed me to do this it was a great experience. It’s a job not for the lazy or people who want a relaxed job. You are kept busy most of the day pepping food, cleaning on KP duties I felt the restaurant I worked in was like my family and friends. Some days were hard when the restaurant got so busy but the manager always made staff coffe and bought chocolates to cheer up the mood. Free food on shift was nice and soft drinks are free. I liked working here and would go back after collage

Nice team and hard working people.

It was my first job in Dublin and I can only say THANKS a million to all staff of GBK for the chance given. The atmosphere was gorgeus and the job was fast pace. Anyway I was supported by the staff everytime even my english level was not so high at the beginning.

It’s a chain

It’s a typical chain store. Lots of corporate stuff to put up with. Lots of needless training. Upper management micromanage the restaurants. Tips are very low because the restaurants are counter service. Food is free on shift but done on a points scales. The longer you work the more you can have. Soft drinks and coffee are free


Almost free meals and drinks. Good staff. Decent food


No work life balance. Management micromanage. No tips for management or kitchen staff

Not all it seems

Management make promises that they don't keep. Training looks good but is full of fluff that really doesn't help in doing the job. All the staff benefits that they talk about are practically non-existent. There is an X-Mas party and maybe one staff party during the year but that's it. Progression is hard and long time waiting. Senior management have play favorites with staff. The hours are a nightmare. Staff are expected to work up to 12 hour shifts and fight for everything


Free food but it works on a scale


Micro-management and poor training
