    Pros

    Shifts are chosen by yourself and are perfect for Uni students wanting to earn a bit of extra cash on the side.

    Cons

    Poorly managed and the work is sometimes a lot more than what you get paid for.

    Advice to Management

    Work on company image and marketing

    Pros

    Easy to sign up to shifts as and when you want.

    Cons

    Poor pay, which is never on time, and is never as much as it should be. Holiday pay is a nightmare to claim back, good luck if you try. Disorganised management, and poor working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider ensuring employees are well fed, and are given breaks. Happy staff = happy customers. Pay staff on time. Make holiday pay easy to claim back, or ideally include it in the hourly rate. Increase the pay rate to the London hourly living wage: you will attract a higher calibre of staff. Provide better training. Employ a full time co-ordinater, who is good at what they do.

    Pros

    Part-time, relatively well paid, easy to pick up and for anyone to do (is just catering work), casual, can pick up a lot of shifts if want to make it a main job, shifts vary so can choose ones to fit around social life or another job.

    Cons

    Breaks may be rushed - but this cannot be avoided in catering work. The staff login section is sluggish when it comes to looking at shift details and requesting shifts.
