    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Swansea, Wales

    50% off food and drink on shift is very generous.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Server/Bartender in Bournemouth, England

    It is a minimum wage position so there are few benefits, aside from holiday time off and the basics. What to be expected from a server position.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Bartender in Blackpool, England

    During shift you have the ability to be offered food and drink via the kitchen which is very nice sometimes

    50% off food during shift and 20% off any time other than that

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Birmingham, England

    I was not properly informed about the rules surrounding how I could use my discount, my pub bent the rules but I wasn't informed of this so it got awkward at other pubs when my friends tried to pay individually. The rewards are not clearly laid at all basically.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Bar Staff in Maidenhead, England

    Free curry sometimes, flexible working, nice colleagues

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Manchester City Centre, England

    Management at the time was very bad, would pressure staff not to take days off or call in sick. Bad atmosphere. Apart from that, you get half price food on your breaks and a discount on food and drinks when you’re not on shift

  • 09 Jun 2019
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Canterbury, England

    20 percent discount is the only good perk of the job, the remainder of my experience was completely negative

  • 28 Apr 2019
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Newcastle upon Tyne, England

    Industry leading benefits and good discounts across the whole estate.
