    I worked at J D Wetherspoon part-time

    Pros

    Literally occasionally the people you work with.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything. Stressed management. Management who don't listen to anything. Unsocial hours. No work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people a lot better and you'd find people would stay longer.
