    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Whitbread part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I meet some nice customers and get good feedback

    Cons

    meet some not-so -nice managers who dont know how to treat their staff

    Advice to Management

    treat your cleaner with utmost respect - No one wants to eat at a dirty restaurant, and when word gets 'round, you can go down fast - Speak to them as people with more common sense than you have, without the patronising
