    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at J D Wetherspoon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Social job, rewarded when working hard, opportunities to travel, pub-to-pub transfers, (mostly) friendly coworkers, flexible to you, good for working parents, Guaranteed Minimum Hours are kept to (I would recommend to a friend that is willing to work hard)

    Cons

    Progression can be difficult depending on PM/AM, unsociable hours, managers not fully trained before running their own shifts, team leaders not used to their full potential, kitchen and bar are very separate, (should be working together more often) cross-train more staff, no work/life balance, thank-less job, understaffed more often than overstaffed, 6 weeks notice for any holiday, used and abused over festive periods and hours are then cut come January
