    Former Employee - Front of House Waitress

    I worked at All Bar One part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very busy and dynamic working environment, with great potential to earn tips. Lots of change - new menus every six month and regularly changing managers.

    Cons

    High turn over of staff, and sometimes tip policy can be unfair toward less senior management and bar staff. No staff food.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after your staff a little better - think about their needs when working (i.e. building repairs, new washers etc....), and not just the profits.

    Former Employee - Team Leader in London, England (UK)

    I worked at All Bar One full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good prospectives of quick promotion. However with increasing of responsibility, your salary is still.
    You don't share tips with others, but it's really hard work.
    It's an exciting environment to work. I made a lot of friends and met interesting people among customers. Good solution for a short term work.

    Cons

    No staff food.
    Mitchels&Butlers is saving hours, so All Bar One is constantly understaffed.
    The company is very demanding, offering nothing in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invest in your staff first. Provide staff food.

    I have been working at All Bar One

    Pros

    You keep your own tips, and can earn okay on busy sites. Most people are pretty friendly and international. You meet a lot of people.

    Cons

    Too many hours, too much cleaning (3 hour + cleandowns on busy nights), some managers extremely retentive and closedminded
