You work hard but you can learn a lot about the kitchen world, they did training for you about how to clean the kitchen, how to clean floor, walls... its a good place to start working and learn a lot
Free lunches, possibility to learn many things about kitchen
I worked in UCC, Management terrible, bullying for little things.Stay away from this company its not worth it.They only pay a certain amount of hours no matter how long you are there.
Dont know if you will receive your pay.
Horrible place to work for. Very unappreciative of staff members no recognition or rewards when you go the extra mile and come in extra hours or days and are flexible but severe punishment and grief when unable to do so. All other staff members are nice and supportive and work well as a team. just management extremely rude uncooperative and expectations completely unreasonable. Not easy to deal with for any issues you may have. All members are expendable. Minimum wage, no benefits.Subsidized food like any other food service industry
subsidized food like any other food service industry.
Working at KSG was an okay experience. I had a great Manager, some lovely co-workers and some other not as lovely co-workers. Teamwork was not good sometimes due to some individuals. The company itself is okay, but the management could have been done better sometimes.
Responsible for opening and running a busy coffee dock at the UCD College. My responsibilities include managing and ordering stock, adhering to all relevant health and safety laws. (HACCP trained) Preparation of coffee and pastries for the customers all the while offering excellent customer service. I am also responsible for opening/closing tills in the coffee dock and adjoining restaurant.
If you ask me I would avoid this place cause management just treat people like numbers. Most are foreigners like me, but at least half of them speak really bad language so when you are teaching them their future job they don't know what are you talking about. It's not their fault only the management who lies and deceive you. They would give you this idea how they see you in future but they don't go thru with execution cause they are extremely untrustworthy and manipulators , if you are smart you can see thru them but they are so in the clouds that they don't even notice how noticeable you are. If you want to learn and don't know much about hospitality then its actually okay place to start.
Management do not care about staff.treat you like a number. ( Unfortunately still people out there want to be a part of this.) Supervisor/ manager all unprepared. Instead to make the work flow they do the opposite. Equipamets all of poor quality. ( I worked with a coffee machine that broke every week. A joke place! p
The only thing true about the company is subsidized meals. Management does not concern itself with the wellbeing of employees. Supervisors are not trained for the job, there’s no room for progression and the hours are very long. I found myself working alone with no support when I asked. Very poor communication and doesn’t follow health and safety regulations, including food safety.
There is a culture of zero accountability, a lack of leadership, and other serious issues within the working environment. While the benefits and salary are favourable, these benefits and salary are only favourable in the immediate term but not in the long term.
Minimum wage for 37.5 hours per week, but insufficient to complete all your duties (overtime that you’ll have to do to finish all the task assigned every day not paid of course).Mistreated and totally lack of empathy, they think only to exploit you most they can till you’ll leave. Not recommended absolutely.
9 Month probationary period which I failed in the 9th month, after getting a "promotion" with no increase in wages, no increase in contract hours, no benefits. Very rigid, no support from management. No soul. A decent launch pad if you want to get back into the service sector but as soon as you start questioning things or not destroying yourself to meet their standards they'll discard you because there is a massive work force out there for them to continue to exploit.
Very negative experience working here. Misdirection and degrading attitude from the management: behind the veneer of the initial corporate pleasantries, it is clear they don't care about the catering staff. A heartless machine of a company. Job was suspiciously easy to get, and it soon becomes obvious why. Wouldn't recommend working here.
Compny is good Only think is you will find all Brazilian group who always talk their on language so bec of this they will always busy with fun laughs so you hv to do all thing your on but whn manegar n supervision came they strt showing they working actually I find supervisor also they don't care
Free luch n dress
Worked in ucc as a chef, terrible conditions, paid for 37.5 hrs per week ended up doing on average 65 no pay for overtime, kitchen management very poor, no breaks, poor pay. The worst of all the contract cater companies.
Long hours, poor pay and management
Very bad company to work for,Management & head office have no respect for good worker's, I would advise anyone to stay away from this company, When you go for a interview they will promise you everything & be nice to you... But they are false & not trustworthy in anyway.BE SAFE STAY AWAY.
Free lunch. Wouldn't eat there.
Good hr ( but not worth it)
