Pros

There are some great people working there, and you can have some incredibly fun shifts. Most of the customers are terrific, making a shift incredibly pleasurable.

Cons

Management constantly promise promotions, but never deliver. When doing work at the level of a more senior colleague, the difference in pay is not paid. There are colleagues that sponge off the system and do not pull their weight.

Advice to Management

When promise a promotion, do not delay month after month. Review the Human Resources department, and make them more pro-active when dealing with sub par staff.

    Pros

    Discount on shopping, retail hours

    Cons

    No praise, under paid, no reviews on performance, open to late, high wastage on food products, bad management,

    Advice to Management

    Use some of your big profits to pay your staff more for more return business, and to keep your staff happy. More on reviews for staff performances and promotions. And to praise staff more.

    Pros

    Relaxed and friendly environment. Amount of training needed is minimal and since the branch I worked in was small, the tea was fairy friendly and close-knit.

    Cons

    Management was a bit up and down - we went through something like 6 different managers in 6 months. That meant that my hours changed and shifts became less organised

    Advice to Management

    Get better systems in place for shift-swapping and holiday coverage. Would also be beneficial to have employee-manager catch up sessions.
