"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.
I am part time during uni term time and full time during holidays, Kitchen Manager very good with hours and time off.
Shift work so some flexibility in it
Good staff discount, need more emphasis on staff moral.
The best thing about working for JD weatherpsoons was the 50% discount on food, however the discount could only be applied when working .
I would regularly get asked to come which was a good benefit
Flexibility is based on your availability, the more you're available the more flexible the hours can be. Generally if you can regularly work anything and you ask for a day off its not an issue. If you have very set shift patterns its harder to accommodate the time off requests
It is possible to submit days you can't work the week before
you choose how many hours you would like to work a week and the management team work around this, put you in when available. You can swap shifts with other team members and other people can cover your shifts if you're unable to do it, Rotas are given out a week in advance so any changes you can act fast.
They don't like to hire people who can't work weekends and often exploit new members of staff by giving them 40+ hours despite only being part time to 'break the newbies in'. Was exhausting when I first started.
