Overall reviews at Greene King
Good when you're young
Worked for greenfinch in my younger years late teens to mid twenties and loved it. Very fun fast paced you learn all the work skills needed. Opportunities good too I was promoted a few times and given opportunities and responsibilities.
Sadly though it's just not a career for a grown up. If you want work life balance or better working conditions and are a competant manager you can go elsewhere. Even just with pub chains there were better places.
I haven't worked there in 3 years though and I know ceo had changed so maybe the company culture changed too. Take my words with a pinch of salt but id say if your driven and in early twenties get in there and climb. Thirties forties hopefully your management as your often understaffed over worked.
ProsFun, fast paced, the people, teaches you alot, good oportunities
ConsUnderstaffed, overworked, childish culture on site and even at general manager level
I'll Love to work in Greene king because it is a good and an excellent place to work and also I am interested in the Position and I am proud to be Part of the Team please
And the people there make Me laugh whenever I am Not in a good place

Fast Paced enviroment
Busy industry, great opportunities to progress in different fields of industry as well as management. Full training given once you begin working, great benefits not only for yourself but also friends and family.
Good Team but sometimes unforgiving
Managing within Greene King on a daily basis was relatively enjoyable, and the teams I've worked with were both incredibly friendly and good at the jobs. the downside came when the powers that be pushed for harder results that started to become unrealistic for the situation. I found myself often being stretched too thin and had practically no home life outside of the business. there are many programmes for further training and management and bettering yourself and most businesses have a great work ethic and team vibe.

Friendly staff members and management in a busy family oriented pub. Minimum wage, with long shifts but were sometimes cut short (often on days where the pub wasn't busy).

Great team but poor pay
I have been with the company for 2 years and it’s been eventful, but amazing. I have progressed well but I’ve reached a wall between myself and the company so I now have to move on and thank them for the career they have set me upon and what standards I should have when working
ProsGreat progression/learning new skills/lovely team
ConsPoor pay, no social life

poor company badly paid
this company are partly responsible for the decline of interest in hospitality today, too greedy to the point of selling back what they over spent on within two years and full of broken promises
good if you desperate for money
great ppl to work wit
Really enjoy the work place and the greene king way and like to progress in all my work just held back at the current place I work for . I have a great relationship with my team and they come to me with any problems which they may have and I'm happy to help in any way I can
very enjoyable place to work and people to work with. Shame they don't 9offer loyal people permanent contracts instead of temp. Pay ok but better in smaller businesses.
i am not here to comment or rate previous employers. I am here to activly seek new job oppertunities so I do not wish to make futher comments about this.
