    StarStarStarStarStar Former Bar Associate in Saint Albans, England

    It was a good company but because of the low skilled nature of the labour provided the perks provided were not comparable to opportunities requiring a higher level of human capital. However, relative to similarly skilled jobs they are very good.

    50% off food and drink whilst working, 20% when off shift, this can be used for when buying for a couple friends/family etc as well. Would be nice if there was more emphasis on staff moral, perhaps with more staff socials and events.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Cardiff, Wales

    Pros Good discount on food: when on shift you get 50% discount, when off shift you get 33% discount Fairly flexible with time off as long as you book it in advance Cons Poor training- this was my first bar job, and I was offered no practical training. My first shift was at 1pm on a Saturday (it was a football day, so extra busy), and I was just thrown on the bar by my manager and expected to cope even though they were fully aware I only had waitressing experience. I am also a student, as are many Spoons employees, and management was fully aware of this- however was shocked and pretty annoyed at me when I asked for Christmas Day and Boxing Day off to go home (as did the other students at the pub).

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Bar Staff in Sheffield, England

    50% of food at lunch, good management structure opportunities, the job I found easy as it was similar to a job I had worked before

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Bar Staff in Blackpool, England

    You now get 50% off food at whilst working (no change) but 20% off food and drinks (yes this now includes alcohol and food is up to a party of 4 but drinks is up to the member giving you the discount) so it's not bad to be fair...you get a pint of dark fruits for under £3 👌

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Floor Assistant in Manchester, England

    The best would be that all of the food was half price Worst would be I could do a 12 hour shift and only get a 30 min break
