Good place to learn great customer service skills, dealing with customers from all backgrounds. Learning to deal with effective and polite manners with difficult customers. Great team and supporting management.

Mecca was very busy at times, or very quiet. The full days are very long and you will be on your feet without many chances to sit and rest. Often it is so busy you are unable to take your full break entitlement. They don't care if you miss your break, but if you arrive late they will have a serious discussion in the office.
It can be very stressful at times due to the demands of the customers and I found that some of the staff did not cope well with this.
My experience is a 1* rating. But perhaps others will enjoy it. You will need lots of energy and be willing to work long days. I did not like the split shift on full days.
Late finishes, long hours on feet in uncomfortable shoes. Stressful environment.

I worked at bingo for a long time and the managers don’t give you the correct training if they do it’s chuck you on a department and expect you to know what your doing. They messed up my pay every month I done over time and never received it and Work members were very clicky

Terrible pay, under staffed and overall a totally un- professional environment. training is non-existent. long term members of staff get to do what they want when they want whilst new ones are asked to do all the work. Team members telling the management what to do. The hours are split shift which means staying all day with a lunch break for an hour.
Great - If you don’t mind reducing your social life!

Mecca is a fantastic company to work for. I have worked for the company now for around 7 years. No two days are ever the same - and the the customers and your colleagues are what makes the job so enjoyable. It’s like being part of another family (a fairly big one at that!)
The only thing I would say - is don’t expect too much of a life outside of work - as they will tell you that you are on a “flexible rota” - which is a HR-correct way of saying you can work 14+ hours each day (and all weekend, every weekend) - and you cannot complain about it.

Mecca is a very fun place to work but can be very consuming in time around the lifestsyle of employees.

Mecca is a great place to learn and advance in and it has certainly helped me a lot over the years with experience in every field such as customer service, bar work, working with food and working with large amounts of money.

A day at mecca can be very busy and stressful but with the help of everyone doing their job makes it a lot easier. Management At Mecca are all approachable, and also understanding about anything. hardest part of the job is Saturday nights because its te busiest time of the week and we can get 800+ people in, and we could be short staffed which makes it a lot worst

Typical day is you are always on the go, I did learn a lot though but with it being a small business didn't have a lot of staff so you had to stay on your toes, and help each other even if they didn't want it.
