Terrible place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
No care for staff. Operations managers completely clueless across the organisation. Only focus is on maximising profit and minimising waste. Will cast aside employees in a heatbeat.

Management will bully you to leave round your ninth year.

When you're ninth year is about to start they find ways for you to leave . In my case it's also age matters.Management tells staff not to assist you as much.No overtime aloud. Cut back on hours on public holidays.


Don't go there.


I left along with others I found with the same problems.

Fun workplace

Love to work in this kind of hospitality industry especially serving and meeting students. There are always good and not too good people in your workplace but it will always happen everywhere.

Management are the worst l have dealt with

Beware. Don’t work at cater care. Management are not supportive and they are rude.It’s the same at all levels. Unsupportive and low pay. Culture is shocking.

Cronies protecting incompetence.

Uneven distribution of work, to cover for others inability or desire to do their job. I was told part of my job was to perform tasks, which by industry norms do not fall under my area of responsibility. Constantly expected to perform duties over and above contracted scope and reasonable work loads.




Physical exertion and injury. Unsympathetic and understanding management. Complete indifference.

Pretty Good

Not a bad place to work. Few concerns about the hiring process, getting a contract and job offer without an interview is a red flag. Not to mention the pay is pretty bad.

Purple circle orientated.

If you don’t fit in they will f you off.FIFO world. Camp managers generally move their teams with them. So either like it or lump it!!! Not much opportunity to advance. Poor pay rate.


Nice rooms.

Great people to work with, Great workplace, Management needs work

A good workplace environment, always cool people to work with, However management is slow at getting things done and oftentimes there is a delay in getting things that you need or where concerns are raisedYou're most likely going to be put into the deep end when you start working here and left to try and figure things out


Get to eat the lunches


Management needs work

Worst company

Depending on who is the head cook and area manager I had the worst experience such low rate pay for the amount of work they expect you to do.Don’t expect to be rewarded for your hard work


Going home


Hourly rate

Catercare only problem is management

Good peers to work with. Severely lacking in middle and upper management. Very long waiting time to get issues resolved. Very high turnover of staff. food and accommodation is great.


Great people are working there. Ability to save money while not at home.


Poor management

DONT WORK HERE - mentally destabilising

In 26 working years, hands down THE WORST job. Mainly because Management even at Head Office level as well as site level and head CHEFs are GASLIGHTING, intimidating bullies. Be warned. If you try do a good job or stand up for vulnerable people being targeted you will be put through the hardest time of your life or fired. Absolutely shocking work culture and they put so much fear in staff that no one speaks up. THE ONLY WAY THIS STOPS IS IF PEOPLE SPEAK UP.

Don’t apply for a job there

Don’t work for them they don’t care about you as a person you are just a number to them and when you don’t do what they want they make your life hard and treat you like dirt. They have respect for you as a person and certainly don’t care about your well-being

Avoid at all costs

Had the worst experience of my working life (30 years+) with this company. Extremely rude and disrespectful managers, unrealistic work loads and burn em/churn em mentality. Never ever again, there are many other catering companies that support and respect their employees. Always had pay queries that took months to sort out. High staff turnover.


Fellow work colleagues.


Disrespectful, rude management.

Melbourne office ok

Shouldn't have worked here considering it was my first job in Australia. I would not recommend a Corporate employee with mid - senior level experience in IT sector to work here . Ok for a recent graduate or as an internship /part time while working on your degree.


Salary paid on time, learn about food


Too many.

Increased the salary

They need to increase the salary and they never permote there own staff. Catering assistant want to be cook. At least they give chance there own staff.

Extremely short-staffed & existing staff are punished for it.

Run. Seriously. Run.Not a day goes by that staff aren't in tearsNo one deserves thr treatment they dish out. At the interview they say all the right things. You think you'll be working for a company that cares about its staff.The reality is very different
