    Plenty of work, a lot of people try to trade closing/opening shifts for mid-day shifts and all the Wetherspoons I've seen and been to have been desperately understaffed. there are always hours going - in terms of 'life outside of work,' you won't really have one. 9+ hour shifts are common, not to mention they ask you to stay on so there's that, (no matter what time you may have work the next day, they always try and cheat the "12-hour break between shifts")

    Shifts can be moved around which is great when you are a student and need the flexibility for studying

    Best part is the half off food when you’re working long shifts.

    work social life balance will never be perfect but its pub that closes at 2am so meh i guess. just make sure you give 6 weeks notice for holiday days and if you want a day time only job this will never be avlaible and if you do get only day shifts know that most of the staff will resent you

    "Flexible working" .... You now have the option for a 0 hour contract or a GMH. If you take the 0 hour your not obliged to do the shifts rotad to you but when you need shifts they may not give them to you. If you're new you're more than likely going to be doing finishes a lot.
