    I worked at J D Wetherspoon for more than a year

    Pros

    The people that you work with who are in the same position who band together to help through a demoriliseing night

    Cons

    Everything else the company does not care about you unless your nose is firmly iserted inside various holes of management types. If you want a promotion, dont bother training and working hard, spend your time sociliseing with your higher ups. Get used and abused at a whim with out any thanks, any bonuses are subject to an ever shifting set of rules where even the management dont know what they are from day to day. Over...

    Advice to Management

    Define your job roles. Be fairer to ALL your staff. Be clued up on the rules and regulations and stick to them so your staff know what their doing and not constantly worrying if their doing their job propperly.

    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon

    Pros

    I can't say that it's the same in every J D Wetherspoon pub but in the two where I have worked staff relationships make the job tolerable. It might be because you spend a large percentage of your life with these people and you share the same opinions, most of the time anyway, regarding customers, the company and those higher than you but working with people who you come to be good friends with makes the idea of turning...

    Cons

    The customers. A large majority of them are pleasant and polite and relationships with regulars do form however, the cheap beer attracts some of the worst kind of people. Arguments, fights, and a general lack of respect towards staff as a result of too many £1.99 carlsberg. J D Wetherspoon pubs are renowned for being understaffed and don't we hear about it every day off the customer who has to wait an extra 2 minutes...

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to your staff! There is a real emphasis on being happy at work but that's not always possible when you're constantly being criticised for everything you do. In 6 years I don't think I have received praise once for something I have done at work, no thanks for working long hours in two pubs because they were understaffed. It's de motivational and makes you wonder why you even bother trying to be nice and polite.

    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good with hobbies and working around children.

    Cons

    People get promoted quicker who have no children, people that work hard everyday take longer to get promoted due to work availability. Sometimes feels like your being punished for having kids.

    Advice to Management

    People need to feel self worth and ive seen it many a time people who are long time staff members and hard workers get left behind with no promotional prospects because of work availablity due to having kids. Ive seen younger staff promoted who have come and gone i.e students, gap year. While a hard working member of staff who is still there still doesn't get promoted.
