It was a customer facing role serving food and ensuring customers were satisfied. Involved also cleaning and setting up/taking down for various stages of the day and communicating with kitchen and bar
Confidence, customer communication, multitasking and coordination. I have also managed to develop my skills with dealing with problem customers as they can often be difficult
I believe its a great role, perhaps not for life, but to build confidence and ecxperience with such a wide variety of people. It is so nice to be able to go into wok and know you are supported
Extremely. Great company. I would say that out of all of the work experiences I have been on, that Whitbread seem to value not just me but all of theiir staff throughout the company
The structures in place make it feel very secure and manageable and the biggest pressure is really time, however i think that time management and working to deadlines is important within an organisational context
Although i dont require a huge amount they are always on hand if i need to ask a question and I can also contact any of the staff as we seem to build a real team mentality on the shifts
Exactly as much as I ask for. They are not overbearing and trying to spoonfeed me because thats not right, but also i dont feel stranded and alone at any point
/VEry Well. I'd have to say that of all the salaries, theirs is very competetive and I would really feel too cheeky to ask for any more because It's not like its brain surgery!
Lots to socialise and feel part of a team. We often stay for food after a shift or go out and have a party night in a club to let all of our hairs down adter a long week
Because the environment is so positive, you look forward to the shifts.
be yourself, there's noone who can be a better you and the customers will appreciate honesty (with politeness)
