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

    Pros

    Honestly cannot think of anything

    Cons

    I worked in several pubs across the UK. Was paid minimum wage, which at the time was £4 below the London living wage. The billionaire CEO has the money to fill his pubs with right-wing propaganda but won't pay his staff decent wages.

    Pros

    Good pay and staff benefits

    Cons

    Very highly stressful environment with a generally under experienced managing team. As to be expected, the customers in Wetherspoons can be very rude and aggressive since it’s often a place students will binge drink.
