    I worked at Grill'd part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very flexible job - excellent workplace to have during university or with another job as shifts are often fairly consistent and predictable between weeks. Grills hire amazing staff, workplace culture is always great because everyone is young fun and gets along. Good perks - everyone is part time so gets holiday pay, this is super beneficial if you’re in uni cause I could take time off for exams and still get paid. Also discounts on food and drink when not working, free meal every shift worked over 4hrs Good communication and training Opportunities to pick up shifts at other restaurants, also good development chances to progress to team leader, manager etc as Grilld does like to promote from within if possible

    Cons

    Not as good pay as some other hospitality jobs - particularly as it is part time so lower wage than if working a casual job where you realistically may receive the same amount of hours For the pay rate you are expected to do a LOT compared to other jobs that pay higher and require less work. There can be a high turnover so there is constant training and it is a very fast paced environment, so this can be a real problem

    I have been working at Grill'd part-time

    Pros

    I made a great many friends at Grill'd.

    Cons

    Wages are shockingly poor, particularly for younger staff No penalty rates Hiring process is misleading Hours vary wildly depending on the whims of management, you have no set minimum and some weeks can simply receive no shifts at all Forced Certificate training that fails to properly train you for any real work and is just a way to under-pay you No real training from management - team members are expected to train new staff despite this not ever being part of their job Management is abusive and fosters a bullying culture Health and safety is blatantly ignored Multiple allegations of illegal behaviour, abuse of loopholes and health inspection failures
