What Employees Say
I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than a year
For those that work hard there are serious progression opportunities. Excellent for training and plenty of opportunity to learn valuable life skills. The people you get to work with and meet... make the job x10 easier.
Is a very high-pressure job which some people may find too much. Some management tend to forget that running the pub from the office can create tension with associates.
I have been working at Costa part-time for more than 3 years
