Grand prix Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Grand Prix motor racing, a form of motorsport competition, has its roots in organized automobile racing that began in France as early as 1894. It quickly evolved from simple road races from one town to the next, to endurance tests for car and driver. Innovation and the drive of competition soon saw speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour (160 km/h), but because early races took place on open roads, accidents occurred frequently, resulting in deaths both of drivers and of spectators. Grand Prix motor racing eventually evolved into formula racing, and one can regard Formula One as its direct descendant. Each event of the Formula One World Championships is still called a Grand Prix; Formula One is also referred to as "Grand Prix racing".
Mike Guy writes about taking a moral stand and sportswashing in his 2017 article in The Drive titled: A Reminder That F1 Is a Very Shady Business,
"Ecclestone, who surely pocketed many millions more from Azerbaijan in personal baksheesh, responded last year to complaints from human rights organizations that Formula One has a "clear conscience." Of course, it does. By Ecclestone's logic—and presumably, the logic of his replacement, mustachioed American Chase Carey—every country is a little bit corrupt. When Bahrain erupted in the Arab Spring, F1 blithely rolled into the center of a burning city and unfurled its checkered flag. Nothing to see here, Charlie Whiting. Russia hosts a Grand Prix in Sochi, despite the fact that its president jails and murders dissidents and journalists. So what's the big deal?"
Cashier (Former Employee) says"this job made me do so much but paid me so little , not worth working here at all and everyone there are so rude. would make you do so much cleaning too."
Catering (Former Employee) says"Everything here started out fine. I had a part time flexible schedule which went great with my college schedule. I worked in catering and it was a relatively simple job in a fun environment. They operate off of an online system which allows you to put in your available hours for that week and they always followed it. However, the management is not friendly or respectful. One supervisor was nasty to me on a daily basis and when I discussed this with my manager it did not change. Then main catering manager left, and once that happened it was a downward spiral. The rules on how they wanted caterers to work changed so often that it got to the point where we were told how were doing everything wrong on a daily basis. All of catering received a huge pay cut, and a lot of the time I was left with huge parties or parties that demanded a lot of food but I was left alone without help. After a few months of this, they just stopped giving me work altogether without any explanation, phone call, email or letter. After seeing a few other coworkers outside the job, I learned that they had let a lot of people go and that a lot of people had quit. I never felt so unwanted, unappreciated or incapable of making management happy in all my experience. Cons: unorganized, poor communication, no respect, do not care about employees"
Team Member (Former Employee) says"This job is worth a lot but by not having transportation like that really mess me up. Plus the check I got I were trying to save up but can’t continue to save if I have to pay people for gas just to come ."
Venditore (Former Employee) says"Stipendio non adeguato, provvigioni non pagate. Si salva solo l'ambiente lavorativo grazie alla giovane età dei colleghi. Cons: provvigioni non pagate"

Moza (Former Employee) says"exelente lugar de trabajo, todos muy buenos compañeros, se trabaja en equipo"
Hôtesse d'accueil bilingue (Former Employee) says"Les jours de concours, réveil tôt. On nous demande d'arriver une heure avant le début des épreuves. On modifie éventuellement les décorations des obstacles. Entre deux épreuves, on déplace les obstacles qui doivent former un parcours différemment. En fonction du rôle que l'on a, on a l'occasion d'aller chercher à manger le midi, ou pas. Cons: Horaires éprouvantes, pression."
Bartender (Former Employee) says"It was fun to work at but, I will never do it again because they schedule me as a breaker where I told my primary work that I needed the weekend off to bartend at this event. Instead, they made me a breaker which I wasn't too happy about."
TICKET SALESPERSON/ FOOD SALES (Former Employee) says"This is a good place for a first job, but not for anyone over the age of 18. The managers are all okay. The job is pretty easy but the pay is very low. Cons: low pay, boring at times, seasonal, weather dependent"
selling merchandise and assisting customers (Former Employee) says"It was a very busy environment, we had to work fast to satisfy customers needs, management was strict which encouraged us to stay on track during the long working days."

Former Employee - Marketing says"I worked at Australian Grand Prix full-time for more than a year Cons: Long hours with poor pay Seem obsessed with putting staff through ‘self help’ type seminars with snake oil salesmen / motivational speakers Endless pointless meetings No support and meagre resourcing Staff turnover is high so there is little continuity"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Australian Grand Prix full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Long hours with poor pay Staff are treated poorly by management No support or training Management look out for themselves and not their team Sexual harassment is rife Staff turnover is high so there is little continuity"
Lisa Davies says"Absolutely shocking company paid £800 for Monaco GP tickets due to Covid -19 event was cancelled still have received no money back was told the contract says no refunds fuming not my fault there was a world pandemic have now reported them to CMA on uk government website as all companies must offer a refund If cancelled due to Covid-19 gentlemen I spoke to when I rang them was very unhelpful and couldn’t care less £800 is a lot of money to lose don’t buy your tickets from this company"
Judith Hernandez says"Despite being listed as an approved seller on the Singapore GP website, I will never book any tickets again through this or an other “approved” company. I appreciate that Covid has caused us all exceptional hardship however if I had booked my tickets through the Singapore event organiser instead, I would have received a full refund. Instead I have lost the best part of £400. Despite attempts to ask for the difference to be credited against a different GP next year, this apparently could not be done and instead I was offered 10% discount on Silverstone tickets which I declined. I appreciate the effort to resolve but did not appreciate the outcome. Lesson learned the hard way."
John Tran says"My friend and I purchased tickets for the 2020 Australian Grand Prix. Unfortunately due to the COVID crisis, the event was cancelled. We were informed that we would be reimbursed but after months of delay we were informed that they would only cover 80%, 20% being the administration fees. These are unprecedented times and we are all going thru unchartered waters. My issue is trivial compared to the problems in our current climate. I just wished there was more communication between myself and the organiser as we had paid at least $1200. I will definitely purchase directly from the Grand Prix official website than with these organisers."
Sharni Cetinich says"This is the 2nd time and last time I will book with Grand Prix Events. I am dealing with a senior member who has been so unhelpful and rude in all of his correspondence so far. We have booked 7 tickets for my mums 60th Birthday to come to Monza as a surprise for her, & are now being told that own only option is 100% credit towards 2021 (and whip some more fees onto of the approx. AUD$4,000 we have already spent!). All 7 of us are based in Australia and it isn't as easy as flying to the other side of the world 1 year later especially with everyone being financially impacted in this pandemic. I now read on trust pilot others are being offered 85% refund which isn't even an option for us & have read one review where they got 100% back as they clearly stated (which is true) that F1 Experiences have refunded in full who are also part of the same company."
