    I have been working at Arc Hospitality Recruitment part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some venues and shift types pay above minimum wage. You decide what shifts you want to work, good if you need to be flexible and can't commit to regular hours. Managers of Arc Recruitment are very friendly. Nice colleagues usually too.

    Cons

    Some of the venues Arc serves are badly organised with grumpy staff. O2 Arena especially is best avoided; shocking organisation (draught beer almost never works,) low pay, shifts almost always go on longer than expected, customers get pretty horrid too. By contrast, Ascot, the Oval, Sandown are very nice to work at.
