Over the past year it has been a real struggle working really long hours and not being consistent with a work social life balance. More and more jobs are being put on general managers and the stress of job sometimes feels there is lack off suport.

She assisted me where my knowledge was lacking and this has really helped me in being a better manager.

Greene king provide some great training oppertunities but with long hours it sometimes is very difficult to focus on being 100% at your job as often you are very tired.

Not currently due to dismissing some staff and staff turnover being quite high
