I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

They work hard to provide a lot of training for you, encouraging you to be the best you can be. It's great to be in a company that cares about its staff progress. Bonuses are pretty sweet.

Cons

It can be a very stressful environment. You do eventually get used to it though. There is also a quick turnover for a lot of staff. It pretty much can take over your life.

Advice to Management

I don't have any advice for management.

    I worked at J D Wetherspoon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly, not much of a hierarchy / management are approachable, a lot of students and high workforce turnover so was perfect for me as a student. Flexible approach to shifts, never had any problems with getting paid correctly

    Cons

    Probably not very reliable for someone with responsibilities such as children - as a new member of staff I'd often get less hours than I asked for
