    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The management team are a friendly , encouraging , fast pace team that are always pushing their staff to the best of their abilities because they want what is best with us. I’d say the Rotas are quite flexible and they try their best to fit the rotas to our best interest. You get payed weekly.

    Cons

    Can be short staffed so can be stressful . Hours can be unsociable.
