    StarStarStarStarStar Former Bartender in Newcastle, England

    best thing for working here was the other members of staff and the customers. The management could do with more training as it seemed based a lot on personal preferences on who got what job or promotions not the individuals credits.

    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.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Wimborne Minster, England

    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.

    Best - 50% off food/drink during shift

    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).
