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

    Pros

    fun environment, friendly staff, constant work, decent pay, discounts on food. Builds confidence and self respect. tips occasionally, constant meeting new and different people from all walks of life

    Cons

    late, sometimes unsociable hours, managers can take the mick or victimise if they don't like you for whatever reason but easily sorted if you go to pub manager who takes grievance seriously.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility, speak to staff about issues, less moaning

    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of hours available- the better your pub performs, the more hours become available.

Promotion can be difficult due to space available...
