    Pros

    If you’re looking for a job where you can come in, clock in, sit at your desk, talk to nobody, clock out 8.5 hours later and repeat for God knows how long, then this is the job for you

    Cons

    Terrible atmosphere among staff, poor pay, shocking food, located in the middle of nowhere, extremely extremely repetitive and boring to the point where you can feel your life passing by, most of the junior staff are in their 20s and haven’t even seen each other outside the office??

    Advice to Management

    Good God try to improve the atmosphere a little, better pay, secure a permanent and good chef, the junior staff shouldn’t feel worlds apart from the senior staff. Managers should take note from Ken Stack
