Senior Chef (Former Employee) –  Dublin13 October 2019
I've been with them for over 5 years as a chef.
They became a very bad company last year. This year was even worse.
I was missing money every week, and they were blaming accounts or their clients.
The agents were stealing chefs money as they were trying to keep some for themselves.
I'm still owed money from the beginning of this year (their excuse is that the customer refused to pay them).
Their typical strategy is to promise you a higher rates for last minute jobs. You do the job, pay for the petrol and tolls but you get paid a lower rate :(

Kitchen Assistant (Part-Time) (Current Employee) –  Galway22 September 2019
Great organisation to work. Good management team and good working hours. Hours not consistent most times and you can get fewer hours than you might need.

Worst ever
General Assistant (Former Employee) –  Waterford6 September 2019
9.80ph I think not. For all that potwash/deep cleaning you’d want to be fairly hard up for it. I know that’s minimum wage, but not for all the work you have to do. Serving,food prep, cleaning, and deep cleaning. Among many other things to do.
Didn’t salve Labour go put in 1947!!
Never work here

hours are never guaranteed
Catering Assistant (Current Employee) –  Limerick6 June 2019
lets make it clear, if u expect to work monday to friday it rarely happens. Hours are never guaranteed even if you are booked, the client can cancel your shift anytime..no job security at all..some weeks u can left with no hours at all..catering assistant job usually means mopping floors, fridges, cleaning, wash - up..I think agency work is for those who don't need money!
Pros
free lunches
Cons
low wages, hours are never guaranteed

The way noel treat their employees
Chef (Former Employee) –  Dublin2 January 2019
Very bad employer.
lots of promess with no results, if you're stuck with a noel recruitment agent who isn't willing to give you more hours( more like it because there is none even if they promess you there is a lots just to keep you in their books) but their attitude towards you is almost like they own your life as they own intrest.
You will have to wait till the master telling you when and where.
Pros
This will depend on the employer you're send to
Cons
They will send to far if necessary
