At Wetherspoon, we are committed to ensuring that our staff are rewarded for their hard work.
Our success is down to the fantastic teams which run our pubs.
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.
Best - 50% off food/drink during shift
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).
50% off Food during shift, 20% off Food and Drink at all other times.
25% off on food and drink when off duty and 50% off food and drink when on duty
Hourly pay is good for part time work and the benefit scheme is good, management is terrible to work with/for
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
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 👌
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
