What are the best and worst things about your company?
- Flexibility. I manage my own diary which obviously has its perks. - The people: My boss is awesome, as are my colleagues. It's not a company you will struggle to make friends and find support in. - The industry: hospitality is a fun industry, so it's easy to enjoy what you're doing. - It's a target driven role, which is really rewarding when you are succeeding. - The graduate scheme is great as it offers experience in a wide range of roles (marketing, HR, audit, frontline etc..) - this can really help you discover what it is you want to do. - It's a target driven role, which is tough when results aren't coming your way. The role requires a lot of resilience and self confidence. - Sometimes the grad scheme can feel as though it lacks structure. everybodies experience is different (which has its positives) but can feel like it lacks formal structure at times. - The hours. Long and erratic. If I didn't love the job it would be a nightmare! - The driving. Be prepared to spend a lot of time in the car.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people - it's such a sociable industry by its very nature so the people and the people you meet along the way are so helpful and supportive.Nothing immediately springs to mind - the hours are often long but when you enjoy what you do then it's not that much of an issue!

What are the best and worst things about your company?
This scheme gives you real responsibility from day one and allows you to contribute to projects that really make a difference to the business. The use of placements allows the work to be varied but still allows you to control your own diary. There is plenty of support during whichever placement you are on and continual support from grad buddies, your line manager and pretty much any one you ask! The lack of structure to the scheme can at times create challenges however, this allows you to move around the company, working in a variety of different roles for a variety of different brands. The focus is placed on what you want to get out of the scheme and your career goals.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Friendly people - Senior operators really value your work. 20% off all pubs. Flexible working hours - get in early leave early. Working hours can be intense depending on your role- the pubs are always open so it's easy to get in the habit of working late. Corporate change is usually slow...if you have an innovative idea make sure you do something about it.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Job progression. In nine months I've been through three jobs, each time a step up in terms of responsibility and opportunity to grow yourself and your network. If an opportunity arises and you've proven yourself in previous roles you stand a good chance of being offered it. Only thing I could think of might be pay. Although your starting salary is probably significantly higher than the average, as you work through your accountancy exams the pay rises are relatively small.
