    I worked at Stonegate Pub Company part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The shifts were flexable. I worked at 3 different pubs due to moving about for uni.

    Cons

    Had a bad experience with a new GM, didn’t think they were good enough. Pay was minimum wage (£5.35) for just under two years, when I left my
    old GM put up a 20 year olds wage to over 21 wage. Not impressed.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure people are good enough at their job before you put them in charge of a pub.

    No breaks,left on the bar on your own despite being busy resulting in customers swearing at You, land lady was too busy flirting with customers to be any help and if you complained you were ignored , terrible company to work for

    Advice to Management

    Pay team leaders better I was opening and closing the venue and only got paid the same as bar staff whilst the landlady got huge wage and bonus but was rarely in the pub she left all stock displays to me , I took all deliveries did back office role and got minimum wage AM should get involved more and ask staff what's actually going on in a venue
