How are the career development opportunities at J D Wetherspoon?

Pros

Working in central London the pay is good. quick career progression

Cons

Most pubs are always short staffed so everyone is over-worked. Salaried managers end up doing a lot of overtime and struggle to get the hours back so are essential doing unpaid work. You don't have the time or energy to do anything with days off = miserable/exhausted staff = poor customer service. In every pub I worked in for the company most policies were broken and most managers seriously lack people skills, good communication and even the slightest bit of empathy towards both employees and customers. Rota's sometimes not put out till the day before (not at all pubs)

Advice to Management

It pays to be nice. If more care was shown towards employees and the employee promise was kept then they would be happy at work and the company would have a lower staff turn over.
