Great staff, amazing atmosphere
The typical workday is long but rewarding, All staff employed are friendly, energetic and a blessing to be around. The managers like the work to be performed with energy, speed and great quality, but if you take responsibility for the task you're given, of which you should, it is a fantastic company to work for. I've been sent on numerous rum courses, trips and staff events. Would definitely recommend.
Prosfood, team, perks

Every high has a low
i love the atmosphere, culture and overall business concept. It eats away at your social life though. Fast paced environment which is good, but be prepared to work hard, every weekend.
ProsPay
Conslong hours, rarely get weekends off to relax or spend with family or friends.

fun workplace
You can get enough hours, it's flexible also you can combine with your studies. Turtle Bay is a nice company for work. You need to go to work focus because sometimes is very busy.

Head Chef | United Kingdom | 5 May 2020
The worst company I have ever worked for
I did my own rotas. But was pretty much made to work 70 hours plus. I was told to sack and get rid of who ever I needed to , but when I did it was held against me. Managers asking you for numbers for drug dealers ‘ to help them through shifts’ I fell ill and asked for time off due to be burnt out. I was given holiday instead of sick pay then ‘let go’ as I was too ill. Horrid company to work for
