Featured Review

Current Employee - Shift Leader

I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than a year

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

- Amazing, friendly team who are willing to go the extra mile to help and support you - Vibrant, colourful and fun environment to work in where you can be yourself - Progression opportunities are... there for you to take if you work hard - Incredible incentives and perks, arguably the best in the industry - Opportunity to travel and get involved in exciting new projects - Large company with a 'boutique' feel - The ability to be autonomous and bring your own creativity and personality to your role - One big family!

Cons

We all work hard, so if you are looking for an easy ride, this place is not for you. Work hard, play hard mentality and if you're willing to apply yourself the rewards are huge!
