    Ups and Downs

    Front of House Waitress (Former Employee)

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

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

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    All Bar One adventure

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

    ProsGood 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.

    ConsNo 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 Senior ManagementPlease invest in your staff first. Provide staff food.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overworked, too many hours, frustrating management

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
