    I worked at J D Wetherspoon full-time

    Pros

    Staff get discounted food and drinks during their shift and outside their shift at all pubs - enjoyable food and drink too.

    Cons

    Low level management very rude and unfriendly, breaks are sparse and short, wages low for work done. Job roles switched around to suit (bar staff working as cleaners, kitchen and floor workers)

    I have been working at J D Wetherspoon

    Pros

    Flexible hours and reasonable pay. Can transfer to any spoons around the company fairly easy. Discount on food and drink both on and off shifts

    Cons

    zero hour contract means not guaranteed hours, sometimes can be stressful when working on an irregular shift pattern
