Fun workplace

Waiter (Current Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

I have been working at The Pancake Parlour part-time for less than a year

ProsGood people and atmosphere
Friendly managers
Everyone is quite young, including the managers
Opportunities to advance, get more responsibility and broaden your role
Reasonably easy daily tasks

ConsManagers/supervisors monitor you constantly
Pay is average, especially if you're under 21
Food is expensive so even with a staff discount it costs a bit to eat there on breaks
Reasonably high turnover
Can get very repetitive

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Do not work here

Restaurant Manager (Former Employee)
Melbourne (Australia)

I worked at The Pancake Parlour full-time for more than 5 years

ProsHonestly I can not think of anything nice to say about this organisation. It sucks the life out of you!!

ConsSenior management is ridiculous, you work your arse off and get absolutely nothing in return except the expectation that you will do the same week in week out. Food is marked up ridiculously high to provide for the church of Scientology donations. Oh and don't think about calling in sick you will be in the bad books for quite some time.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people with dignity and respect

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
