    Pros

    If you work hard, and get the results, you get rewarded - fantastic Management Bonus Scheme!

    Cons

    Lots of people that have been around too long - they may have served the time but that doesn't mean they know best.

    Advice to Management

    This business needs a huge cultural shift - attitude & behaviours mean a heck of a lot more than skills & knowledge.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Whitbread (Bristol, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Arrived for a trial shift told I would work 1 hour no pay when I got there.
    Manager attempted to make me work another 3 hours with no pay after the hour ended.
    I turned this down mentioning the fact that I was told 1 hour instead of 4 to the displeasure of the manager.
    This probably affected my chances of getting the job.
    The work enviroment was dangerous (wet slippery floors carrying large crate of dishes)
    Exploitive and unprofessional. Avoid!
