    I have been working at Stonegate Pub Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible hours Staff discount Really talented individuals Decent progression pace

    Cons

    Online training is garbage On shift training is lacking (pretty sure it's a site specific con) The place is understaffed, no effort to solve this No real teamwork Rules don't apply to everyone

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you have a training structure in place for new hires. Try to get them involved in the team from the start, otherwise they feel isolated from rest of the team.
