Hard working person

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working at this company is very challenging but it teaches a lot about cooking and cleaning and how to maintain cleanliness around your working places and how to manage time during your preparation of food and how to plate food with garnishing and make it looks delicious and mouth watering and attract people

Pros

No eating on the floor

Cons

One hour

There's no development and no relevant training provided for management

Very racial that considers whites only in the higher position, the highest position that a black person can occupy is catering management with huge discripency to the whites counter part, there is no training provided for management level, no study leaves, no allowances in terms of logistical arrangement and transportation costs, lower salaries which leads to demotivation and dedication to one's work

Pros

Works independently

Cons

No supporting structure from the head office

Unfair job application process

Very disappointed with the recruiting process. Apparently you have to be white and Afrikaans to even be considered for a job position at this company.

Fun and fast paced

Reef caterers is a lovely company to work for and recognise your potential to grow. One must keep in mind that working in hospitality sometimes requires after hours and weekend work.

Unfortunate

The company is predominantly Afrikaner, management is awarded to people of white skin and the working conditions are horrible and hours are crazy for the little pay one was given. Were treated like animals but expected 5 star results

Fun and productive workplace

Cooking and Computers have always been a passion of mine.While working in the kitchen there are a couple of thing that you need to learn quick and that's Cleanliness towards yourself, Tidiness as you go and working quick as possible. So yes i know a thing or two on working under pressure whether by your self or with a team cause in the kitchen you learn how to work together with others while a customer waits for their order.

Pros

Free breakfast and lunch

Cons

long hours
