      Pros

      I found it easy to get days off when I asked in advance, tips were decent and the work was rather easy.

      Cons

      Some of the management was poor, some of the staff was a bit cliquey and spoke poorly of other staff behind their backs. Also bit rubbish not getting free staff meals in a restaurant.

      Pros

      The food tastes alright and you get 30% off

      Cons

      - unpaid overtime - sudden rota changes without checking back or giving you the information in time - managers treat you like animals - you have to do everything except your job - no fixed breaks - 12 hours shifts/ 6 days a week even though your contract says something different - from the tips you get you will see maximum 10% in the end

      Terrible, exploitative

      Pros

      Some training in how to make cocktails

      Cons

      Exploitative business model, very high turn in staff, only the GM is rewarded for performance. We were strongly encouraged to bribe guests with free drinks to get a 9 or 10 on the eNPS (this bribery may have been a regional policy in London). Not doing so meant losing the best shifts for tips. We were understaffed as standard.
