A very unthankful job

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Work was very simple once you knew what you were doing, but for the awful pay, long hours, and terrible understaffing, it overall was a stressful environment.

Cons

Long hours, low pay, no work/life balance

co-workers are extremely nice thats about it

Worse experience ever understaffed, quality of food terrible, management is terrible he would come in just to talk about his life and eat food never helped. most days you could spend 10 to 12 hours depending on when you start. Overall terrible experience and quite frankly no one is paid nearly as much as they should be

Chef de partie

Luis FITZGERALD is a really good group, their payment per hour is very competitive, the advantage to work in is there many restaurants and hotels that you can move and get experience in.

Pros

Free lunches, discounts

Cons

Can't go higher in hierarchical, a bit competitive

Terrible people to work for

Promised the earth but never delivered.Such a difficult place to work.Substandard equipment often not working. Lack of communication and interaction. Owners have no respect for staff at all levels. The word often used, replaceable.

Pros

Parking. (After a long battle.)

Cons

Unworkable hours and faulty equipment.

Good, solid workplace

Worked here for two years and worked hard and was treated well in return. Very fast paced, I would say you need to be a good employee to stay here, as there's no room to slack off work. Overall a good experience

Cosy and family place

A typical day at work is write down orders about drinks and food. I have learned a lot of things about irish culture the most enjoyable part of the job is that everybody is friendly and helpful

Robotic

Old fashion fast food with very little of food quality. Anyone who has minimal knowledge can work at the line which isn't a good way for the kitchen. No progression.

Free meal and a proper break

Cons

Stressful and dreadful without any creativity. Robotic job role

Sucks the life out of you

Horrible place, management is atrocious and care not one bit about the staff. There is a really negative energy in the place - no team spirit at all here. Everyone just places the blame on someone else.

Nice place

It was a nice place and the staff you worked with was so easy and nice to get on with and the job was a little bit hard and busy but helped with all the staff.
