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

    Pros

    -Internal Hire means management understand all aspects of working in the chain. -Free lunches + drinks on 5+ hours shifts. -Staff Wellbeing service is maintained. -Clear progression path, for those interested. -Above national minimum wage.

    Cons

    -Replacement equipment is never new - just 'up-cycled' from other locations. Equipment breaks frequently and often. -Frequent and needless menu changes. -No communication between Daventry warehouse and pubs. -Propaganda machine. Tim Martin certainly doesn't separate his personal views from his chain, and thus forces employees to maintain the image of these selfsame beliefs.
