What’s your favourite thing about Welcome Break?
Oh, that’s hard! *Laughs* Apart from food, all the possibilities of having different food every day… I think it’s the people. It’s the people who I’m working with, the new people coming in, […] the regular customers. It’s the atmosphere about it.
Of course there are days when we’re busy, but that’s nice. That’s like extra adrenaline! That makes you more motivated, you know? And it’s good to know that we’re all coming together as a one big team.
What would you say to someone who’s considering applying?
Definitely that it’s good to work… because of the work place, the people… and the benefits for the team members and their parties. Of course, after lockdown, we need to catch up on a couple of those, and we’re trying our best…to meet from time to time as well outside work.
We of course will have the basic ones, which are, like, Christmas parties. We’re trying to organise a couple of nights out in the local pubs as well. I think the managers actually just had dinner out last week!
The team members are trying to do a lot of different days or events for charity, if you would like to be involved. And it’s fun, basically, for everybody.
What other benefits do you get?
So it will be free parking, meals when you’re working and there’s 50% off when you come with family and friends on the site. You get, as well, summer incentives… career opportunities, development, online courses, and doing charity… I’m just thinking. I’m sure there’s more!
