    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free food on shifts longer than 6 hours meaning you never go hungry when working till late in the evening. It also has a friendly, social environment perfect for students and those new to the area.

    Cons

    During busy periods workloads can become very stressful as you are required to collect plates and glasses whilst serving drinks and serving many large food orders.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at J D Wetherspoon part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Weekly pay is always a bonus, but management are always being told to cut hours, so sometimes there were people barley making enough to pay rent. If you were friendly with the manager of your pub would always mean you got a say in your hours etc

    Cons

    Very little in the way of motivation to make you improve, expected to undertake what is generally an easy role that does not provide much satisfaction, thus a little encouragement or gratitude from management wouldn't go amiss
