    Pros

    Great people, excellent holiday allowance and benefits.

    Promote people from within, you are losing a valuable asset to your business because you overlooked my abilities in favour of external applications.

    Pros

    Good hard working and close team
    Good communicaiton with front of house and back of house
    Free meal every 6 hour shift

    Cons

    If restaurant has been dead, people get 3 hour breaks and hours cut constantly which becomes irritating
    Low wage (£5.00)

    Advice to Management

    Cutting hours and saving labour has a negative impact on the morale and attitudes of employees and honestly, I know myself and other employees are searching other job opportunities.

    Pros

    Perfect prepare for manager position at Bella Italia - Training in Central of Excelent - care by nice helpfull and very welcome Charlotte during training. Amazing Senior Managment staff - Mike Stringer Dan Hallan Adrian Butcher - thats a people with passion for food and the same time with passion to improve business and massive knowledge

    Cons

    In my personal opinion restaurant should respond to a complaint not Head Office - resturant staff knows exactly whats happend so we should take responsibility adn we should deal with that.

    Unpaid Overtime for managment staff.

    Advice to Management

    Give more motivationj for employees, share passion with whole staff :)
